Hidden Provision Give Police Right to Violate Gun Owners Fourth Amendment


Washington State Democrats have sponsored Senate Bill 5737, which has a little provision that  apparently was to go unnoticed that would have said that police have a right to  search a private citizen’s home once per year if they own certain types of  firearms.

According to the legislation:

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.

Yes, that means liberal Democrats pushed forward this legislation in open and  defiance of the Fourth Amendment.  But that’s not all.  When they were caught  with their hands in the cookie jar, they exclaimed it wasn’t their fault and  that they made mistake.

“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.”

Yeah, there was no mistake.  This was deliberate.  Murray and Kline were  sponsors of the bill.  They knew exactly what was in it.  This is just more BS  from the Left.

Murray also told a gun-control rally in January, “We will only win if we reach out and  continue to change the hearts and minds of Washingtonians.  We can attack them,  or start a dialogue.”

Interestingly, Danny Westneat at the Seattle Times writes about Lance Palmer, a Seattle trial  lawyer and self-described liberal.  “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.”

Now this part is actually somewhat encouraging.  If a self professed liberal  Democrat, a trial lawyer at that, understands why we believe a real danger of  government takeover and abandonment of the law of the land is genuine, then that  is at least one guy who is thinking.  Hopefully, he’ll drop his liberalism and  become a pro-gun attorney!
