Proving, of course, that there is still a need to keep and bear arms in order to vindicate other rights in the face of authoritarian politicians.
Biz Pac Review reports today that a bill sponsored by three Seattle Democrats would require owners of assault weapons to submit home inspections annually conducted by the county sheriff. The proposed legislation, SB 5737 2013-14, bans the sale of assault weapons but allows those who already own them to keep them but submit to the home inspections.
The part of the bill regarding the home inspections is 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.
Dare I suggest that the legislators who put that provision into the bill in question are the sort who are unfit for any position of public trust in our constitutional republic?
