‘Voluntary’ Home Inspections for Illegal Weapons, Toy Guns:

Police Searches “Help People Make Themselves Safer”

UPDATE: Due to public outrage, the police department in this story was force to cancel their home inspection program, for the time being. See below.

The tyranny around us is all an illusion. Everything you see is for your safety.

Repeat: It’s all for your safety.

So are the new, unwarranted police home searches for weapons… in fact, they are just voluntary. Explicit consent instead of implied consent. Even pretend.

While we’re at it, there’s a dress rehearsal for martial law going on in Los Angeles with Marines in full combat gear, just after real martial law in Ferguson during months of protests and riots.

Until today, police in Beloit, Wisconson, a city with about 37,000 people, were asking residents to open their doors to “voluntary” home inspections so police can look for illegal guns… and whatever else they might find:

As part of its new “Consent to Inspect” program, authorities in Beloit, Wisconsin, want residents to open their doors so they can come and inspect for illegal guns without a warrant.

The effort is part of a new push to help get firearms off the streets in an area that has suffered an uptick in homicides this year. Beloit Police Chief Norm Jacobs feels that gun violence is a disease and his new program, which asks local residents to allow officers to come by and search for firearms and even modified toy guns, is a step to a cure.

It stands to reason that a voluntary search for illegal guns (which ones are they?) might well include police tracing, databasing and verifying serial numbers, owners and/or purchase histories as well. Oh, and of course, investigation of any other contraband or regulated items of interest, etc. Slippery slope.
