Mod note: the source has changed the title and the body of this article after this was posted.
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 isnt hypothetical. The notion of police home inspections was introduced in a bill last week in Olympia.
The same people think parental notification for underage abortions is a violation of privacy.
But all over the country we see Dems trying to do exactly that!
If they do that, people will start getting killed.
Are the lefties really this stupid or do they actually want to start a war?
It sounds like it’s time for a boat trip.
Blue state lefties are on an anti-gun rampage. I expect this will damage them in the next election when people finally wake up to the threat, and also realize that red states are overwhelmingly more free and more financially stable.
More overt communist moves to enslave the populace... I wonder how much longer before the “rubber band” snaps back the other way? Will there EVER be a backlash against these scumbags...?
This is the same language in the Minnesota House bill HF241. Any doubt remaining that this is a coordinated effort?
“Later, a Senate Democratic spokesman blamed unnamed staff and said a new bill will be introduced.”
Translation: Aw crap! They caught us!
No joke, when Time Warner Cable suggests they can’t fix it remotely and have to come in, I half kidding whole serious think they are doing a government inspection. Same with mailmen, they are gov’t agents and could check out the place. There are a lot of ways.
That is why they say “We don’t want to take your guns”.
Like in Mars Attacks. “We come in peace”.
The mistake was that someone found out about it.
Does it apply to the lawmakers?
It is not going to snap back.
Think about it. JFK, a “liberal” Democrat, was arguably more conservative than most ‘Pubbies are today.
With control of the media and education in the hands of the Left, the “Center” has been driven into what would have been the far Left in the 1960s. The pendulum will only swing Right again over the ruins of our cities and piles of dead bodies. Which I am NOT advocating.
Now that the bill is making national news, the sponsors are trying to run away by saying they never read it! Adam Kline is a genuine pissant.
Find out who made the mistake and jail them for willful violation of the constitution.
How do they know you have an assault weapon. And have they definitely defined what one is? Do they announce they’re coming or just arbitrarily show up? Keep your guns hidden. Will they come with a metal detector? Questions questions questions
Someday, US government goons will be coming into homes looking for Bibles.
Remember this prediction.
"We have to pass the bill to know whats in it."
"If this piece of legislation at any point requires a law enforcement officer(s) to knock on a citizen's door or to enter a citizen's home, that law-enforcement delegation MUST be accompanied and LED by at least one member of this house who voted FOR this law. Further, resignation or retirement from office or defeat at the polls shall not be construed as providing an exemption to this requirement. It will be in force for the lifetime of any legislator voting for this legislation."<\B> <\Br>
That way, when any patriot decides to go out with his guns blazing -- but, in reality, only has time to get off one round -- his one round can possibly be used to eliminate one representative or the real source of these oppressive laws: Tyrannical (read: "Progressive") legislators.
Mistake or not, it is proof of what liberals believe in and what we must protect ourselves from. They believe in total government domination when they have the power but believe in anarchy when we do. Maybe we should jsut pass a law that says a Bible must be in every home under inspection.
I’ve mentioned this before: in Bloomsburg PA, antique dealers are required to submit their business records — all transactions — to the local police for inspection. The police have the powers of government auditors.
It is outrageous, it is tragic that people accept this sort of thing now. Had it happened in 1776 it would have made the list in the DoI.
It is a very small step indeed, to police inspection of homes. Child protective services already do it, with court orders gotten with less trouble than obtaining a ham on rye at the automat.
People accept it. They are sheep, domesticated, castrated, shorn, shepherded, frightened, contemptible sheep. They have largely forgotten any alternative to obeying the law, any law, good or evil.
If you don’t let the police in, what do you do? Resist? If you’re not resisting already, you never will.
If you’re still paying support to this government, you always will.
Maybe we should introduce federal and state bills to ban abortion, and criminalize any who support it as accomplice to murder.
Tit for tat. Two can play that game.
Ever pull a 236-year-old rubber band?
Note the date - and items 19 and 20. It’s no mistake. A commenter there posted this:
State of Washington
2010 Regular Session
By Senators Kline, Fairley, Kohl-Welles, and McDermott
Read first time 01/13/10. Referred to Committee on Judiciary.
(5) In order to continue to possess an assault weapon that was
17 legally possessed on the effective date of this section, the person
18 possessing the assault weapon shall do all of the following:
19 (a) Safely and securely store the assault weapon. The sheriff of
20 the county may, no more than once per year, conduct an inspection to
21 ensure compliance with this subsection;
22 (b) Possess the assault weapon only on property owned or
23 immediately controlled by the person, or while engaged in the legal use
24 of the assault weapon at a duly licensed firing range, or while
25 traveling to or from either of these locations for the purpose of
26 engaging in the legal use of the assault weapon, provided that the
27 assault weapon is stored unloaded and in a separate locked container
28 during transport.
I’d introduce bills to make the Democratic Party illegal and a subversive organization. They do not pass Constitutional muster either.
“A bill like this should not pass a Constitutional examination.”
The author of this bill should be Alinsky’d. Do it enough times to these criminals and maybe they will stop.
I imagine the appointment for inspection going like this:
Sheriff’s Office: Yes, this is the Sheriff’s Office calling to schedule your first annual Assault Weapons home inspection.
Sheriff’s Office: We can schedule your inspection anytime between 9:00 AM and midnight.
Patriot: I’m busy at those times.
Sheriff’s Office: So midnight it is.
Patriot: I’ll be ready for you.
Perfect example of how our communists nation will become. Not a chance of this not being the Federal law within a few years.
The almost complete infestation of "liberal" thought in two of our major institutions - the media and education - will only be eradicated through a large dose of pain.
And as you noted, the application of pain will not be pleasant...
What is this thing you call a “Constitution”?
Who cares ‘bout bein’ free? I got me Obamafone. Who cares about financial stabilty? I got me Secshun 8 house ‘n EBT card ‘n SNAP ‘n Headstart ‘n da udder money from Obama stash. I vote “D.”
What about this tyranny the 2nd Amemdment is supposed to preclude?
Precisely! But these are NOT mistakes. These a$$hats know that these bills are rarely perused before signing, so it will slip through. Perhaps they should be removed for gross negligence—the signer and the introducer.
Ah, but the wording is “may” not “shall”. Thus, it is at the discretion of the Sheriff. So pick out the libtards who own guns, and “review” their homes.
“It sounds like its time for a boat trip.”
It sounds like its time to drain the lake.
Well, they include the right to inspect the property of everyone who signs a farm plan in the plan and no one resisted, so they think that they can get away with inspecting for guns. They also use aerial photography to inspect rural property for violations of such things as zoning, storm water regulations and farm plans.
No one fights back, they just complain and then sign the stupid farm plans. They cannot make a farmer sign a farm plan. They have no means of enforcement. I have a friend who refused to sign and they just eventually dropped the issue. She complied with their demands as far as fencing the animals and that sort of thing, but she refused to sign the agreement that would allow them to enter her property at will for inspection.
Frankly, it sounds more like it's time for a "tar and feathers" party...
Hey, I thought that the Democrats were all about the right to privacy, that it was the right to privacy that made sodomy laws unenforceable.
This is tantamount to the government stationing soldiers inside your home.
just because someone exercised their rights.
As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
And the burnt Fool's bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;
And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!
No one on this board will be alive to see this come true.
Dems make mistakes all the time.
Exactly. The two sponsors of the bill claim not to have read it all the way through: they are not even pretending to have written it.
So, who did?
We really, really need to find the answer to that question.
by mistake my foot!
Yes and yes.
And there will be some that will get killed. I won't shed any tears for these tyrants. They can all die as far as I'm concerned.
