Pulled Washington Gun Bill is Example of How Liberals Advance Their Statist Agenda


From the Washington Times: “Washington lawmakers have pulled a contentious gun-control bill from the state’s legislative tracking website, after calling a section that gave law enforcement authority to enter homes and check for proper weapons storage a ‘mistake.'” They actually had a bill in the state of Washington which would have granted law enforcement the authority to enter your house, check your weapons, and to make sure that you were storing them “properly,” according to their own guidelines.

“The Seattle Times reports that Seattle trial lawyer Lance Palmer first raised doubts about Senate Bill 5737 to the newspaper, complaining: ‘They always say, we’ll never go house to house to take your guns away. But then you see this, and you have to wonder.’ Mr. Palmer was referring to a now-scrapped section of the text that gave the local sheriff the right to conduct home searches for proper storage guns once each year.” Now, you know the left as well as I do. Once they start something, once they propose something, it doesn’t go away.

They may have pulled this because the pressure became too intense, but they clearly, in the state of Washington — and they’re speaking for all liberals — let out of the bag what their intentions are. So all of these people who have projected or complained that what the left really wants to do is to go home to home, house to house, and eventually find a way to get your guns away from you? It is true, and people who have made that claim have been ridiculed and impugned and shamed into shutting up.
