    Madison Co sheriff spent concealed weapons funds on guns, carpet, tile and a car

    the law enforcement agency spent more than $60,000 between 2011 and 2014 on expenses seemingly unrelated to concealed weapons license administration

    Oldbanger, thanks for the info on this, it's very interesting.

    Law enforcement skirting the law, no way that ever happens

    Madison sheriff bought guns, car after begging for 38% concealed permit fee hike

    “It just is absolutely crazy. I would never, ever think of spending taxpayers’ money inappropriately,”

    Madison Sheriff responds to funding concerns:

    we said ‘Hey, our civil deputy doesn’t have a vehicle. Where can we get it?’ Well, we had just enough in that account to get it, so we got the car,”

    So they bought a 2014 Chevy Cruze for $16,995 and traded in a 2002 Chevy Impala for $1,995

    Where did they get the Impala to trade in?

    The civil deputy lives outside the county.

    Great observation. I'm gonna have to add that to my rhetorical magazine.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
