Red Alert!: Democrats Introduce Bill To Allow Police To Search Homes Of Gun Owners
February 19, 2013
Primary sponsor said the bill authorizing police search of homes without a warrant is probably unconstitutional.
Democrats in Washington State are in full retreat after it was reported they are working on legislation that would nullify the Fourth Amendment rights of citizens who own firearms designated as “assault weapons” by the state.
“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,” SB 5737 states.
If enacted, the law will allow police to search without a court-issued search warrant the homes of owners of legally purchased firearms.
