    Misstep in gun bill could defeat the effort

    The title of the article masks the point of the story.
    Im a liberal Democrat Ive 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: Its exactly this sort of thing that drives people into the arms of the NRA.

    I have been blasting the NRA for its paranoia in the gun-control debate. But Palmer is right you cant fully blame them, when cops going door-to-door shows up in legislation.

    The "misstep" is in fact no misstep at all. The house-to-house "inspections" to ensure compliance provision is no misstep. This provision is the next step towards confiscation. Washingtonians must remain vigilant and be warned that this will return and it will be enacted into law.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    Make a law, any law, just write one up so we can all sign it to prove we are good and right and wholesome....................

    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    I'm not concerned yet, this is being pushed by the usual suspects who've pushed this bill in like, every single one of the last legislative sessions. It's been referred to committee, with no date scheduled, I doubt the committee will even hear it.

    so I'm not concerned yet. the type of people who are introducing this bill and co-sponsoring it are people who never claimed to be pro-gun anyway.
    they love our milk and honey, but they preach about some other way of living, when they're running down my country man they're walkin' on the fightin side of me

    But you should be ... You should be concerned that someone with this mindset, with these intentions, holds a civil service position of power and has the desire to create laws that leverage against the common citizen in the name of zealous control.

    And contrary to the oath of office they took.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    They don't have to take the oath and office for that matter, so they still end up responsible.
