An impending bill in Washington State imposes draconian restrictions on private ownership of firearms. Currently owned “assault weapons” will be grandfathered, but with an alarming catch:
“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.
Even some moonbats have realized that our rulers are using Newtown-fueled gun hysteria to shove us closer to a police state. Seattle trial lawyer Lance Palmer gulps,
“I’m a liberal Democrat — I’ve voted for only one Republican in my life. But now I understand why my right-wing opponents worry about having to fight a government takeover.”
Funny they don’t mind blowing off the Second Amendment, but get upset to see the Fourth go down with it — as if any of the Constitution can survive when part of it is ignored.
