“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.”
Seriously? Whats worse, is that the guys that came up with this act as if they were not aware...
"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."
Shouldn't be in there? Why, because you were called on it? This is a very important issue, and it's like the Obamacare bill all over. I guess we'll see what these bills contain once they're passed?
It's amazing that as these pols rush to implement gun control measures, they are absolutely the most ignorant people on the issue. The wacky provisions based on arbitrary cosmetic designs are revealing. (see proposed ban on mini Ruger 14 with folding stock Vs the exact same gun with rigid stock for example)
The people with the least knowledge are actually crafting legislation that they seem to have not even read!
It's amazing that you can sponsor a bill that involves cops doing random warrant less searches of the homes of people that have not commited any crimes, and then say you didn't know it was part of it?
"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.”
This, while many libs mock the gun owners that claim, "they're going to take our guns".
The writer correctly points out that this kind of legislative BS is rightly fueling that reasoning.
