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.”
The Biz Pac Review article reports that two of the bill's sponsors made a mistake in putting that provision into the bill. “As it turns out, two of the bill’s sponsors — Sens. Ed Murray and Adam Kline — took a cue from their congressional brethren and didn’t bother reading the bill before signing on to it, the article said.”
Murray, the bill's sponsor admitted that the home inspection provision is “more than likely unconstitutional.”
The Fourth Amendment prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures and the courts have held that warrantless searches, as this legislation provides for, are in violation of the Fourth Amendment.
