Mistake in gun bill could defeat the effort

Posted on: February 17th, 2013

One of the major gun-control efforts in Olympia this session calls for the sheriff to inspect the homes of assault-weapon owners. The bill’s backers say that was a mistake.

Forget 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.

That it’s part of one of the major gun-control efforts pains me. It seemed in recent weeks lawmakers might be headed toward some common-sense regulation of gun sales. But then last week they went too far. By mistake, they claim. But still too far.

    This is not a surprise from this socialist state. No one will be surprised If, a) they pass the bill and b) the sheeple there will comply. I suppose they will be required to keep a jar of Vaseline by the front door as well.

      Oh come on, vasceline? There’ll do it dry and hard..

    “Mistake” my eye.

  • foxxybey

    The only difference in a socialist state and a communist state is one has guns, the other doesn’t.

    “common-sense regulation of gun sales”
    Who’s side are you all on?
    You lost my support with that one – goodbye.

    • CaptTurbo

      What part of “Shall Not Be Infringed” do they not understand?

  • gas pump junkie

    Next they will want to violate the 3rd amendment and quarter troops (Deputies) in your home. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The only thing broke is dealing with people’s mental problems and putting the real criminals behind bars so they don’t commit more crimes.

    That is No Mistake, How do you write out a law that long….then claim it was a Mistake ? Like a comma or apostrophe ?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1182062536 Charles Darling

      They can claim “ObamaCare” (sic) is a mistake and that’s TOO LONG to read !

      • gutterfalcon

        But they don’t say obamacare is a mistake, They say it’s the saviour, it’s going to save ALL the people.

  • DaveNTejas

    What common sense are you talking about? The ONLY common sense side of this issue is to follow the constitution.

  • CaptTurbo

    Helen Wate is in charge of this legislation. If they want to come take our guns they can go to Hellen Wate.

    Wouldn’t they need a valid search warrant stating what they are seeking? Even then, anything they find OTHER than what was listed wouldn’t be admissible! Of course, marijuana wouldn’t be, anyway, as that is being legalized there in Washington state, I believe! All they REALLY want is all our guns! That way the ‘authorities’ needn’t fear the populace when they decide to become extra-legal!

    • http://www.facebook.com/texashale Michael Hale

      What makes you think they would care about the 4th Amendment when they obviously don’t care about the second?

      • mogul264

        VERY good point! It’s not like they follow the Constitution, or anything other than the Communist Manifesto!

    • http://www.facebook.com/rips.daddy Eric P. Huffman

      that’s not necessarily true mogul264 — If “other things” were setting out and obvious it would be admissable. You just can’t search in places where the object(s) your legally there to search for would/could not be in (Can’t search for an elephant in a breadbox).

      • mogul264

        Obviously, I didn’t mean something ‘obviously’ viewable while casually walking in. I think, if I lived there, that I would FILL my house with gun-shaped objects, gun-shaped drawer pulls, rifle legs on stools, etc entire rooms of toy but realistic-looking pistols and rifles. And, I’d paint those orange tips black, too! I already have some saved by my mother from my childhood! Drive ‘em nutz!!

    Apox on the first person to comply!

  • dad666

    A Pox ont the first politifcian to vote in favor of any more gun control legislation period…

  • Jane Haslam

    I think they ought to leave the police our of our homes. They can’t even control the street violence let alone go after legalized gun owners. Don’t you need a warrant for them to come into your house???? I agree with gas pump junkie if it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Like he says investigate the mental problems!!!!!

  • Daniel F. Melton

    Their mistake was getting caught writing a law that violates the 4th Amendment.

    IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN, IT IS AGAINST OUR CONSTITUTION and NO GOVERNMENT NO MATTER HOW HIGH CAN DO THIS WITHOUT BREAKING THEIR OATH , THIS IS ALL JUST A SMOKE SCREEN TO TAKE YOUR MIND OFF OF OTHER THINGS< ITS ALL BULL

    • http://www.facebook.com/stephen.rhinehart2 Stephen Rhinehart

      The constitution has never stoped government yet

    • Alfred Ferguson

      Whatever makes you think an “oath” means anything to these people? Are you still in girl-scout camp? Good grief.

  • Black Rain

    Really, the only thing here is they got caught. Another bill which representatives were not going to read but, thank God someone did.

  • bhudda

    It’s definately unreasonable search . We have a Constituion that says this isn’t going to happen .

  • http://www.facebook.com/william.weeks.92351 William Weeks

    what we have to do is clear! next election we have to send our elected officials a pink slip.
    “throw them out of office” that is the only thing they will understand.
    we should have done this decades ago!

    Fascist state in action;Olympia this session calls for the sheriff to inspect the homes of assault-weapon owners.

    and if they don’t like what they find…then what are you put into a boxcar and sent to a re-education camp?

    First they came for the semi auto rifles

    and I didn’t speak out because I didn’t own semi auto rifle.

    Then they came for the semi auto pistols

    and I didn’t speak out because I didn’t own a auto pistols

    Then they came for the hunting rifles and shotguns

    and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a hunter

    Then they came for me,

    and there was no one left to speak for me.

    Now I am a slave of the Government
