- "No Warrant" Home Inspection Proposed For Gun Owners

A bill has been proposed to allow law enforcement to enter the homes of gun owners without a warrant, to assure that they are in compliance with the new gun laws:

“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.”

Thankfully, it hasn't been proposed in NJ... yet.

I read this earlier as the writer laments that the "pla"is essentially good, but off to a bad start.

Also, I read the weekend Review section of the Journal. They had a big feature about some mealy mouthed lib democrat that claimed he was a "gun guy" and proceeded to trash the NRA .. Painting a completely false picture of what the NRA stands for and what it has done. Shame on the Wall st journal!

David Frum: a Moron.

Frum opines that all guns should have a built in indicator identifying whether loaded or not... and this is a guy screaming for "common sense".
Frum must gleen his gun knowledge from TV detective shows since he believes that guns go off when they are dropped.

Isn't this effectively what DiFi's proposed new and improved AWB does too, effectively? Grandfathered guns would be treated as Class 3 NFA, just like full auto. Part of the deal for owning full auto is you sign a form allowing warrantless search. Plus, class 3 NFA is basically a may-issue system. You need to get sign off from the chief LEO in your jurisdiction to gain approval.
