Even Democrats that sponsored this bill aren’t sure how it came to say that police will search the homes of residents on a yearly basis to ensure compliance with new gun laws, and they aren’t happy about it because it sets back their efforts to pass a gun control bill.

Basically, someone overshot the Constitution so far that the Democrat sponsors agree the provision is unconstitutional. You know it’s bad when Democrats admit something is unconstitutional:

SEATTLE TIMESForget police drones flying over your house. How about police coming inside, once a year, to have a look around?

As Orwellian as that sounds, it isn’t hypothetical. The notion of police home inspections was introduced in a bill last week in Olympia. …

“They always say, we’ll never go house to house to take your guns away. But then you see this, and you have to wonder.”

That’s no gun-rights absolutist talking, but Lance Palmer, a Seattle trial lawyer and self-described liberal who brought the troubling Senate Bill 5737 to my attention. It’s the long-awaited assault-weapons ban, introduced last week by three Seattle Democrats.

Responding to the Newtown school massacre, the bill would ban the sale of semi-automatic weapons that use detachable ammunition magazines. Clips that contain more than 10 rounds would be illegal.

But then, with respect to the thousands of weapons like that already owned by Washington residents, the bill says this:

“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, come into homes without a warrant to poke around. Failure to comply could get you up to a year in jail.

“I’m a liberal Democrat — I’ve voted for only one Republican in my life,” Palmer told me. “But now I understand why my right-wing opponents worry about having to fight a government takeover.”

He added: “It’s exactly this sort of thing that drives people into the arms of the NRA.”

I have been blasting the NRA for its paranoia in the gun-control debate. But Palmer is right — you can’t fully blame them, when cops going door-to-door shows up in legislation.

I spoke to two of the sponsors. One, Sen. Adam Kline, D-Seattle, a lawyer who typically is hyper-attuned to civil-liberties issues, said he did not know the bill authorized police searches because he had not read it closely before signing on.

“I made a mistake,” Kline said. “I frankly should have vetted this more closely.”

That lawmakers sponsor bills they haven’t read is common. Still, it’s disappointing on one of this political magnitude. Not counting a long table, it’s only an eight-page bill.

The prime sponsor, Sen. Ed Murray, D-Seattle, also condemned the search provision in his own bill, after I asked him about it. He said Palmer is right that it’s probably unconstitutional.

“I have to admit that shouldn’t be in there,” Murray said.

    I propose that all politicians take a Constitutional and Bill of Rights test before they can take the oath of office.

    Hell and IQ test would be good too sincerely they take a look at cost of this either.

    • 1endtimes2020

      That, Laurel, is an excellent idea.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/44F4AB4VSCTOCHBMBG4ZWWD5OU Laurel

        I also propose that if they have any criminal record of any type they are disqualified.

        • savageob1

          what kind of criminal record? i could go along with a felony record being a disqualification

          • http://profile.yahoo.com/44F4AB4VSCTOCHBMBG4ZWWD5OU Laurel

            Really?!

            Because not paying child support or alimony isn’t considered a felony depending on what state you are in. A lot of felonies are also plead down to misdemeanors. I could make an endless list!

            Hell Jackie Speirs plead her drunk driving down to a misdemeanor. Need I go on?

            • savageob1

              I’m just trying to get a feel for the parameters of such a law, yes the argument you put forth is good, but we wouldn’t want someone denied for spitting on the sidewalk

                I agree with that…maybe. I hate spitting and would like to slap people who spit gratuitously in public. It’s disgusting and bad manners. Use a damn hankie.

            Here is what Laurence Lewis of DailyKos says
            QUOTE
            Thanks to the judicial activism of the right-wing extremists of the Roberts Court, there is an individual constitutional right to bear arms. That is the current law. That is the current official interpretation of the meaning of the vague words of the small, exclusive and exclusionary group of white Protestant men, some of whom were slave owners, some of whom were monarchists, and none of whom seemed to think women should be allowed to participate in governance, who lived more than two centuries ago but whose words more than two centuries later are considered sacrosanct for guiding us through the modern world. That doesn’t mean that the current interpretation of those vague words always will be the law, but it is the law for now.
            END QUOTE
            oh dear, monarchists !! ??? These politicians sure are acting like monarchists !

          Here’s a better test: Attach a 50LB weight to a prospective lawyer and drop him/her in the ocean 30 miles off shore. If he/she floats than they get a pass however if they sink, well, it’s food for the fishes.

          By lawyer I mean legislator lawyer.

        • Seamus Dubh

          I agree, why not, it is a requirement of any other prospective government employee.

    • OneThinDime

      Great ideas. Can we add a background check, fingerprints and DNA checked against unsolved crimes while we are at it?

      • tinker_thinker

        Don’t forget the drug tests.

        • OneThinDime

          Bingo! And they should be hair follicle.

      • white531

        It is harder to rent a house, than it is to qualify for political office. To rent a house, you have to through tenant screening, which includes a background check and a credit check, all done by TransUnion.

    • sDee

      They do not have to bother themselves with menial things like reading or understand the Constitution. They have Constitutional “scholars” for such things.

      And public follow-up checks every year to examine if their records are correctly in line with that oath.

  • Sober_Thinking

    This would simply be the last straw if it passes. Either there would be a mass exodus out of that state/area or there would be a huge underground started up. Sadly, some may even fight this in inappropriate ways.

    This all makes my blood boil… it’s wrong on every single level. They’ve crossed the line and are breaking the law more and more… each incremental freedom that we lose, emboldens them to go further. Maybe it’s planned that way to start an open war? Then they can roll in the tanks and declare martial law… I don’t know. But this is the most blatant and evil overreach I’ve ever seen and I NEVER thought I’d see it in my lifetime.

    One other observation… maybe they’re just turning the heat up slowly, so the frog doesn’t realize the danger he’s in? If they do these things little by little… and let some time go by… then steal the next freedom… and let some time go by… maybe the vast majority of the dumbmasses will start to accept a new normal.

    I don’t even own a gun (yet) and I’m a member of the NRA. This MUST end now!

    • Marridge

      Bless you for being an NRA member. Do get a gun though. We are going to need all hands on deck. The NRA has an excellent Basic Pistol class that will be worth your while and will give you confidence in handling your gun.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Will do. :)

    • 1endtimes2020

      In the past, when I would think of refugees, especially single men, I would wonder why they didn’t stay in their own country to fight for it.
      Obama is in such a big hurry to implement his agenda, we could be having to fight for our own country, within our country, against our own police and armies. If there was ever a time to pray for our country, it’s right now.

    • M_J_S

      There is no “inappropriate ways”. If lawmakers make un-Constitutional laws and police officers attempt to enforce them, they are illegal AND INVALID orders and should be defied.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Spot on MJS.

    • badbadlibs

      Wish my family and I could make the mass “exodus”. We’re stuck with the tyrants in Olympia and the idiotic, bone headed, communist loving voters in King County that keep electing the worst Marxism has to offer.

      • savageob1

        It’s time to make a stand, not flee!

        • badbadlibs

          Have you been to this once fair state? Seattle has a statue of Lenin. Standing around here will get you flat feet and that’s about it. This state needs a massive influx of conservatives to move to King County in great enough numbers to keep the vote counters out of the back rooms, mysteriously finding votes for the democrats.
          Nonetheless, I appreciate your thought.

          • savageob1

            just trying to light a fire big daddy!(to paraphrase a line in Independence day) i was there in ’84-’86, so i do know what you’re saying!

            • badbadlibs

              Ah, the good old days of the 80’s when this was actually a conservative state! I can hardly believe the transformation in such a short time. So sickening and so sad.

          • Patriot077

            I’m with ya, bad! King Co is so plagued with Dems it is sickening.

            Didn’t they try this bullcrap 3 or 4 years ago too? It felt like deja vu all over again :) when I read this article.

            Do you recall this or is my memory faulty? I seem to remember both me and my son emailing the legislators.

            • badbadlibs

              I don’t recall if this has happened before…it would NOT surprise me if they tested the waters in the past. The scary part is that they will continue to do so until they get their evil way.
              Was in the car with my son the other day and he was listening to 710 am sports and one of the men said in reference to some other story that he thought it would be a great idea for people to lose some of their rights for the good of the many. Meaning gun control…even the gal darn sports radio around here is communist!

              • Patriot077

                Yup. I don’t listen to KIRO anymore at all. I was tickled to see 570 brought back conservative talk. Hope that two stations will impact the indies at least. God help us, the Dems are like rabbits.

      • Sober_Thinking

        The irony is palpable here…

        I’ve spent 9 years at McChord (20 yrs. USAF) and met my wife in Tacoma. Being from Iowa and raised in Illinois (man have those states gone to the donkeys), I dearly love the NW. Mt. Rainier is a majestic blessing to behold. Pike Market, Puget Sound, the Cascades, Olympic peninsula, etc. Breathtaking.

        However, I last visited there 2 years ago and based on all the bumper stickers, the new laws, and some of the sick liberal policies going on in that state (gay marriage? pot legal?), I sure wouldn’t want to live there. Irony: My wife pines (pun intended) to move back there – desparately. My father lives there. My best friend lives there. My 1/2 sister lives there… and dang it, I’ll probably be stuck moving back there.

        Breaks my heart what is happening in that beautiful state.

        • badbadlibs

          Raised my family in Tacoma. Use to love to go to downtown Seattle, now it’s so PC it’s sickening, my husband and I won’t spend “one thin dime” in King County.
          My children, grandchildren and now great granddaughter all live here, otherwise I would be conspiring to move, but now I would feel like I was deserting my family to evil on steroids.
          You sure have the connections here. I live on the Olympic Peninsula and yes Mt. Rainier is majestic, when you can see it for the constant clouds. This is not my favorite place on earth, by a long shot, but it holds what I love most.
          Speaking of bumper stickers, I saw a truck on 167 the other day that had it’s rear window really well done with “Liberalism” is large letters surrounded by words such as, hypocrisy, tyrants, and other such apt descriptions. Told my son if I love that man….if I wasn’t already married… ;)

          • Sober_Thinking

            :)

            Excellent.

            I spent a little time up on Hurricane Ridge, Stairstep, and Squim. So beautiful over there. HUGE slugs in them thar woods. ;)

            My wife was in King County traffic (for 3 hours) one day while it was 90 degrees and she had no air conditioning in her car. She was literally falling asleep time and time again. She was bored, tired, and rather angry at all the “hippies” all around her. That’s when she noticed a bumper sticker on the car in front of her. It read: “Die Yuppy Scum.” A gift from Heaven. :)

            • badbadlibs

              There was a 90 degree day….dang, I missed it! ;) And what a bumper sticker, missed that too!
              Slugs…oy, they are the worst things on earth! The yellow ones with black spots…good grief!
              Not too far from Squim, it’s the sun belt, believe it or not.
              Best to your family!

              • Sober_Thinking

                Yeah… back when the globe was warming. ;)

                I saw green ones with brown on them, black ones, yellow ones (with black), and brown ones too… too weird. What is that small fishing town on the coast… West Port? There was a little store there that sold, sliced (and cooked) slugs for consumption. Ugh. :)

                Very nice where you live…

                Best to you too.

                • badbadlibs

                  I tell everyone around here (most liberals), that I want our share of “global warming” and as soon as it warms up and dries out around here I “might” listen. Until then, how dumb can you get?!
                  Yes, it’s West Port. Yikes…cooked slugs. I do not want to know how hungry I would have to be….

                • Sober_Thinking

                  :)

    • MiketheMarine

      I’ve got to disagree with you, very strongly. If a cop shows up at my door without a judge signed search warrant, he won’t even get inside my fenceline and if that cop tries to enter my home against my wishes he will be dealt with like any other illegal burglar in that he won’t survive the event.

      That is a truly appropriate response to this bovine excrement, unconstitutional police state crap.

      • Sober_Thinking

        I respect you and get your point… but I honestly don’t know how to respond to that my friend.

        I feel your anger.

      • sDee

        Many talk about standing up to tyranny but many have not let the reality set in Mike. You have. This is not easy however for many of us. The natural slaves among us will simply comply. Freemen will not, but will naive trust and hesitation condemn us to the same fate?

        I have always lived my life 100% according to the law. I respect the law and law officers. I am not in violation of the law nor have I broken any laws. I never will. So should I hear my front door crashed through, there is absolutely only one thing that will freeze in my mind – my life and the life of my family is in mortal danger. Otherwise there would have been a knock and a warrant based on probably cause.

        We all need to think long and hard and run the scenarios. Many here, as law abiding citizens, believe that our government is operating in violation of the Constitution and Bill of rights to enter our homes without a warrant in violation of the 4th Amendment, to confiscate our guns, or arrest us for exercising our God given right to bear arms protected by the Constitution – where do we stop and defend?

        Now the reality that many of us need to let set in and prepare for, is that when they come without a warrant for our guns, or for us for owning them, there is little doubt of their true intent.

        This is dead serious stuff that these politicians-turned-rulers are messing with. I think they know it. Do we?

      Absolutely, because in those days, when they did read documents, everything was okay. So, they started to take it for granted that all documents would be alright, and voted for them without reading them.
      Little by little, there are things going on behind closed doors, that will work against us. Thank God, we still have Democrats who don’t realize, for now, what is going on with Obama’s agenda. When they wake up, Obama will have a hard time, but hopefully it won’t be too late.
      I would like to think that what we consider the silence of Republicans is actually the accumulation of evidence to use against Obama to impeach him.
      Pray for America.

    Personally, and maybe it’s the tin foil brand I’m wearing, but I think they intentionally take it so far, so that when they pedal back on it claiming they didn’t mean for it to go so far, people will accept the parts they do intend.

  • 1endtimes2020

    What is so worrisome about the Democrats, is that they are so adamant about supporting Obama, that they don’t realize they could easily wake up one morning to find they are no longer living in a democracy.
    To think that the police could spend so much time checking on guns in homes, means there would have to be a lot of hiring, just for that purpose alone. You can imagine the power-trip people that would be attracted to the job, and how abusive they could be inside your home.
    It is the consequence of people indulging in sins that offend and mock God, just as in the days of Sodom and Gemorrah, the days of Noah, the Roman Empire and all the way up to our present ‘modern’ times of ‘changing times’ that are supposed to give license to those sins.
    Thank God we have good people in the country to keep the devil from doing even more harm.

        I heard that happened to one of my friends; haven’t had it happen to me yet. It’s beyond any government “service” we need or want from them! Unceasing torment by those who feel morally superior to the public in general.

  • sDee

    If we surrender our rights and let the government intrude on them, does it really matter how far they intrude?

    I just do not understand the slave-like mentality that somehow the home “search and inspection” crosses a line that registration, magazine restrictions or selective weapons bans do not.

    If someone owns a gun that accepts a banned magazine, or if someone owns a magazine that is not illegal but putting more than the prescribed number of rounds in it is, that is probable cause for search and seizure anyway.

    The mechanism is different – the objective the same. Making people who own modern weapons feel like they are criminals. Make us worry about transporting our guns to the range or a hunt. The lingering fear that one small technicality could drive us in to bankruptcy out of legal fees to defend ourselves from jackal AGs like Holder. Stigmatize and exorcise those who own modern weapons.

  • feralferal

    I had a conversation with a police officer last year and the subject came to search and seizure. Offhandedly, I said I couldn’t care less if the police came into or searched my house just so long as they had a warrant from a judge. His comment was (nearly his exact words), “We don’t need a warrant anymore. We can pretty much do what we want. The only people who can do anything about it are the ones with money for a lawyer and we win because it costs them so much. We’re not losing our jobs over it. Everyone else, what are they going to do?”

    People think that the ‘gun nuts’ are paranoid, but that’s only because most of the on-the-books legal powers held by the police and government are not being exercised yet. People who are unaware of the changes in the laws over the last 10 years are just too ignorant or blinded to understand how the entire framework has been changed.

    • 80s_kid_wants_rainbow_back

      I wouldn’t say that currently flies in SoCal. Our police are under constant scrutiny by the cop hating portion of the population and the local media. Like Steven Valdez says, they can’t even question people to ascertain if they are illegally here or not. But since we have another four years of DingleBarry and his cavalcade of goons in power that may very well change.

Those that are trying to create fees and taxes, and force insurance on weapons, are opening up a new battlefront against the Eighth Amendment. Long ago, they started their battle against the 10th Amendment.

    Got my conceal permit application done today. I’ve had the certificate for a few months now, but haven’t got over to the Sheriff’s office to follow through.
    This past weekend I had someone threaten and approach my car. I had my mother, wife, and 2 children in the car with me. Luckily, I was in a position to evade and drive away. However, it keeps replaying back in my head what could have happened if I had cars in front and in back of me leaving me like a sitting duck for road rage. In my state, castle rule applies, and I could have had the confidence to protect myself and my family if God forbid the threat reached that level. It was a solid reminder to get my paperwork done.

    This is the way slimy politicians “float” a controversial idea past the general public without having their names actually attached to the idea. If the public goes absolutely bat shit crazy against the idea then it will be considered to “costly” and the idea is shelved until they feel the public opinion has shifted towards said idea or another “crisis” happens they can take full advantage of (Sandy Hook comes to mind). I can’t think of a better State to do this in than the State of Washington where we have the likes of the evil lawn gnome Patty Murray and her idiot side kick Maria Cantwell followed by their favorite hincman Jim “in search of a brain” McDuhhhhmot.

    PRAVDA & GUN RIGHTS
    The English version of Pravda (yeah it’s still around) thought it necessary to remind us of the historical fact that in 1917 the first move the Red Army made was to take away all privately held guns. This well armed population was what allowed the various White factions to rise up, no matter how disorganized politically and militarily they were in 1918 and wage a savage civil war against the Reds. It should be noted that many of these armies were armed peasants, villagers, farmers and merchants, protecting their own. If it had not been for Washington’s clandestine support of and for the Reds, history would have gone quite differently. . Governments will use the excuse of trying to protect the people from maniacs and crime, but are in reality, it is the bureaucrats protecting their power and position. In all cases where guns are banned, gun crime continues and often increases. As for maniacs, be it nuts with cars (NYC, Chapel Hill NC), swords (Japan), knives (China) or home made bombs (everywhere), insane people strike. They throw acid (Pakistan, UK), they throw fire bombs (France), they attack. What is worse, is, that the best way to stop a maniac is not psychology or jail or “talking to them”, it is a bullet in the head, that is why they are a maniac, because they are incapable of living in reality or stopping themselves.

If the police ‘inspect’ your house and can’t take your guns outright, they are going to insist they be ‘locked away’ where they are virtually useless in an emergency.

    According to the GAO, there are about 50,000 law enforcement personnel distributed through 45 agencies. These are full-time agents, authorized to execute searches, make arrests, and carry firearms. Add in some 7,462 Customs agents the total approaches 60,000. This doesn’t include contract personnel, military CID forces or personnel from agencies with less than 25 officials in law enforcement.
    All of these agencies are armed with military weaponry and SWAT teams. Couple that with the military arming of state, county and local police and then tell me we aren’t living in a police state.

    I read through that bill and correct me if i’m wrong but it looks like they are considering a pistol with a magazine greater than 10 rounds an assault weapon. say good bye to 9mm’s its ok though a .40 or .45 with less than 10 rounds is still fine. Aslo they try to go after any shotgun that has more than 10 rounds and a stalk or pistol grip. Most shotguns hold like 8 max so most pistol grip shotguns wont be considered assault. Not only did they admit to not reading the bill, but also you can tell the writer doesn’t have basic knowledge of guns and gun types. I don’t get it.
