Dems Sponsor Bill To Violate Fourth Amendment Rights Of Gun Owners

Washington State Democrats have sponsored Senate Bill 5737, which has a little provision that apparently was to go unnoticed that would have said that police have a right to search a private citizen's home once per year if they own certain types of firearms.

According to the legislation:

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.

Yes, that means liberal Democrats pushed forward this legislation in open and defiance of the Fourth Amendment. But that's not all. When they were caught with their hands in the cookie jar, they exclaimed it wasn't their fault and that they made mistake.

“I have to admit it shouldn’t be in there,” said Sen. Ed Murray (D-Seattle). “I made a mistake,” said Sen. Adam Kline (D-Seattle). “I frankly should have vetted this more closely.”

Yeah, there was no mistake. This was deliberate. Murray and Kline were sponsors of the bill. They knew exactly what was in it. This is just more BS from the Left.

Murray also told a gun-control rally in January, “We will only win if we reach out and continue to change the hearts and minds of Washingtonians. We can attack them, or start a dialogue.”

Interestingly, Danny Westneat at the Seattle Times writes about Lance Palmer, a Seattle trial lawyer and self-described liberal. “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.”

Now this part is actually somewhat encouraging. If a self professed liberal Democrat, a trial lawyer at that, understands why we believe a real danger of government takeover and abandonment of the law of the land is genuine, then that is at least one guy who is thinking. Hopefully, he'll drop his liberalism and become a pro-gun attorney!

UPDATE: Wording from the legislation has now been removed by those caught red handed.

    Washington State made this choice when they voted for those who have placed
    their freedoms in the politicians hands.

    Deluded democrats first try to deny fourth amendment rights under the Constituition and then when caught in flagrante delicto try to claim ignorance. It is probably the only TRUE statement any of those taking the trouble to reply to the charge. If only American had have the brain of a hungry wharf rat, we would not be in this position but, they hisdde from the truth and react to stimulus other than economic, like ostriches; hiding their heads in the sand in an effort to avoid an unpleasant reality that nonetheless is going to bite them in the backside. How dumb can they come? OUTRAGEOUSLY SO! we have no one to blame for the present crisis but ourselves and, unless we address it ourselves, you have to KNOW those in office and effete elitist poisitions within the government, WILL NOT! FOOL ME ONCE, SHAME ON YOU; FOOL ME TWICE, SHAME ON ME!

    So, who caught them with their hand in the cookie jar and why? Sounds to me like these communists (State Democratic Senator Ed Murray is the chief pervert responsible for gay marriage in Washington State...he lied during the campaign to pass the "Domestic Partnership" law several years ago. He said during the DP campaign, "No. We don't want gay marriage. Almost immediately after the DP law was passed, he said, "This is one step closer to gay marriage. We are not giving up.".) are playing both sides of the fence, trying to look like law-abiding officials...hah! How do you know a Democrat is lying? They open their mouth...

    Wake up all you parents. Demand that schools teach the constitution in their schools in the ninth grade before all these morons drop out of high school. Now we have highly educated morons due to their ignorance. The colleges and universities should teach the constitution for one full year in the first year using the Federalist papers as text.

    It is becoming too late to take out the trash. Let's work faster, people.

    The rest of America can not help finding a Democrat/Liberal Idiot, behind every tree in Washington State...

    Good luck folks. You are certainly going the right way...

    It is unfortunate that this is happening, we needthe rest of the people to wake up and stop voting for these idiots. We also need to have better election controls, it seems almost no one re-elected Obama, 'everyone else' did it!
    And I heard some areas ended up having more votes than regestered voters, but it was considered "an acceptable error margine". If it's true then we are in far worse shap than I thought.
