The sheriff is asking that citizens contact their local state representatives and ask them to vote against HB 6. Though a constitutional carry bill has been filed during each session over the last several years, Cochran said it is his understanding that this year it is likely to pass.

To date for 2021, there have been 58,273 new and renewed permits issued which have generated $1.17 million. Sheriff spokesperson Lori Myles said that these monies help the department fund numerous community initiatives as well, including WKRG’s Golden Apple, Fox 10’s Fugitive Files, Lagniappe’s Game of the Week, the Yellow Dot Program, Project Life Safer, correctional officer job advertisements on iHeart Radio and Black History Month. Stringer told Lagniappe the issue is clearly over money, explaining that revenues from pistol permits are deposited into discretionary accounts, or, as he called them, “slush funds.” The representative noted that he has 30 years of experience in law enforcement and he has hundreds of friends and family members who work as officers. “If I thought that this bill would put them in danger at all, I wouldn’t be supporting it,” Stringer said.
