WA Dems Sponsor Bill Allowing Police To Search Gunowners’ Homes

Post image for WA Dems Sponsor Bill Allowing Police To Search Gunowners’ Homes

In a mistake that probably wasn’t a mistake, a Washington state bill sponsored by liberal Democrats contained a little-noticed provision that would have called for the police to have the right to search private citizens’ home once per year if they own certain types of guns. According to Senate Bill 5737:

In order to continue to possess an assault weapon that was legally possessed on the effective date of this section, the person possessing shall … safely and securely store the assault weapon. The sheriff of the county may, no more than once per year, conduct an inspection to ensure compliance with this subsection.

In other words, kiss the Fourth Amendment goodbye. Liberal lawmakers behind the bill claim they have no knowledge of the provision – which, of course, begs the question as to how the provision got into the bill in the first place. “I have to admit it shouldn’t be in there,” said Sen. Ed Murray (D-Seattle). “I made a mistake,” said Sen. Adam Kline (D-Seattle). “I frankly should have vetted this more closely.”

Quoting LauraKW:

You think Obama is going to write an executive order for the state of Washington?

Quoting Billiejeens:

 


You think that clause wrote itself in, somebody thinks it is a good idea.


They are pushing the envelope, today they got caught, next time, who knows, maybe the little dictator simply issues an executive order as he likes to do.


Maybe you are dense, one of my bigest flaws is I tend to think more of people than I should.


Quoting JakeandEmmasMom:


 Given the number of times I've gone against my better judgment and responded to you, sometimes I wonder the same thing.


This bill would be pretty cut and dry.  Apparently that portion has even been taken out already.  Much ado about nothing.


Quoting Billiejeens:


 


Sometimes I wonder if you simply play dumb.


Any law is constitutional if 5 of the 9 Justices say it is.


Quoting JakeandEmmasMom:

In what way did I prove your point? One deals with the ability of congress to levy taxes, the other deals with search and seizure laws. These are very different principles.


Quoting Billiejeens:


 Thanks for proving my point!



 



Quoting JakeandEmmasMom:

On the contrary. According to the SCOTUS it can. There are few restriction on congress' ability to levy taxes, unfortunately.



Quoting Billiejeens:



 




Being taxed on something that you don't buy could never be law either right?




Quoting JakeandEmmasMom:

Waste of time. It would never withstand constitutional scrutiny. Citizens do not give up their right to privacy simply because of things they own.

 Glad this Sen is at least owning his mistake and acknowledging that is shouldn't be in the bill and that he should have looked at it closer.

 I don't think this bill will pass.

 Way to cover your ass.  Pretend that you were referring to the whole country because you didn't realize the article was talking about Washington state and not Washington DC.  Impressive deflection.

Go back to page 1, where I quoted Peanut and then stated it would be back - probably Nationally, a clear reference to this not being nationally, but down the road, it might be.

Our rights are being trampled and taken from us and many are too ignorant to see it.  Like most  us, I pay my taxes to the gorvernment, do not lean on the government for assistance and have no criminal record; yet they want to  control me more and more.  I object to the intrusion and the attack on my sensibilities and common sense.   I am not a child, nor do I need to be protected from myself.  I want a government that aids you when and if you ask for it.  Don't need useless, and power grabbing laws imposed on me.


Quoting gammie:

 

Hello can you say we are all FUCKED!!! Until the  rest of Americans wake up we will end up in trains to nowhere. If you think I'm nuts look at all our rights being taken away in the name of safety.
