    If your a Freedom loving American, 2nd Amendment or Constitutionalists type person, or you just like hunting and shooting; you've got to read this, it's symptomatic of why we have to fight the anti gun crowd and whats wrong with our politicians in State and Federal Government. Washington State is a suck hole for these type of individuals in Office.. their excuse and reasoning in the article is almost as funny as it is sad and twisted.

    I don't know if you saw the attached article about the protest in Idaho Falls, or not. Either way, open the article and scroll down into the 'comments' section to the article by J.D. Longstreet. It needs to be reposted on the net and then printed and posted on the doors of courthouses.

    I was able to recover this hope it helps;


    Misstep in gun bill could defeat the effort
    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.


    By Danny Westneat
    Seattle Times staff columnist

    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 somecommon-sense regulation of gun sales. But then last week they went too far. By mistake, they claim. But still too far.
    “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 5737to 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.
    He said he came to realize that an assault-weapons ban has little chance of passing this year anyway. So he put in this bill more as “a general statement, as a guiding light of where we need to go.” Without sweating all the details.
    Later, a Senate Democratic spokesman blamed unnamed staff and said a new bill will be introduced.
    Murray had alluded at a gun-control rally in January that progress on guns could take years.
    “We will only win if we reach out and continue to change the hearts and minds of Washingtonians,” Murray said. “We can attack them, or start a dialogue.”
    Good plan, very bad start. What’s worse, the case for the perfectly reasonable gun-control bills in Olympia just got tougher.

    Well, I was a deputy sheriff in washington state for many years. Washington state is a pig sty (the west side) which is why i now live in Idaho. And I can tell you all that there is no way in hell that a sheriff has time to do home inspections. I cannot believe that these morons get elected and I cannot believe the stuff that is on the politicians agenda across this country. I hope and pray the next election cycle "we, the people" get absolutely PISSED and get them out of office. God, what ever happened to common sense?????

    Why is it that these elected officials cannot take the time to read an 8 page document before voting on it? And why is it the those of us who oppose this anti-constitutional garbage and read everything we can to stay informed are called uneducated, fascist, rednecks? This is so screwed up.

    The democrats have not been doing a very good job of hiding their end goal, complete confiscation of firearms from the American citizens. I hope and pray that their openness in laws like these will wake the sheeple up to what is really going on, but many of them have their heads so far up Obama's a$$ that they hear echos when he farts. Time will tell.

    When I see bills like that, the first thing I wonder is "Are they trying to make double damned sure there's no way this could ever be enacted and if it did be struck down in court" ? I get the whole shot gun approach, but putting it all in one load seems kinda stupid even to this college uneducated redneck Conservative Libertarian, Constitutionalist.

    No, they really mean what they wrote. To the Democrat/fascist, a home inspection is what a good citizen would be happy to allow. It's just a friendly visit by the local constable, why would you possibly object?

    The Democrats have really pulled out all the stops in the last few weeks. A few minutes ago we got a magazine ban passed in the CO house, and all over the country, the Democrats are going crazy. I think keeping it bottled up since 1994 has caused them to be even more delusional. Hell, in MO they introduced a bill to ban, and confiscate all firearms (sure it has little chance in passing, but this is what the Democratic party offers).

    My PSA to Obama voting gun owners - please choke yourself. Thanks.
