Australia has no 4th Amendment

And if gun control advocates have their way, neither will we:
NORTHERN Beaches Police will be turning up on the doorstep of every licensed gun owner in the area over the next four years to check their firearms are stored correctly...
“Licensing police will be attending the home of every licensed firearm owner in the northern beaches over the next four years to inspect every weapon and check the gun safe.

“Officers will be examining all gun safes to ensure they comply with the legislative requirements, particularly in relation to the standard and security of safes.”

Supt Cruickshank reminded all legitimate owners that under the Firearms Act they must take all reasonable precautions to ensure the safe-keeping of their firearms...
And if you don't comply, you go to jail. Note that the only ones effected by this are 'legitimate owners'. Criminals aren't inconvenienced in the slightest.

This is the same thing as "Safe Storage" laws that are endorsed by groups like the Brady Campaign and the various Joyce Foundation funded groups. The only way they are enforceable is by warrantless searches of homes as determined through licensing/registration lists, another thing demanded by the gun control groups.

Many of these US groups are part of IANSA, the international, Soros funded organization that pushed for these laws in Australia, the UK, Brazil and elsewhere. They got it there, they want it here.

And people wonder why we absolutely refuse to consider any talk of "licensing," or "registration."

Oh, by the way--"licensing police?!"

Not just "no," but "HELL NO!!!" Not just "HELL NO!!!" but . . . you get the idea.

As a GFW argued in a discussion with me recently:

"But why would any law abiding citizen oppose registration?"

It's almost enough to make me purchase a firearms vault, have the blessed thing installed, lose the combination, and wait for the inspectors to arrive. Can you imagine their reaction when the owner can't get into the device??

Always have had a perverse sense of humor...

I wonder how well these ComLibs would like it if this same principle was applied to any other Amendment of the Bill of Rights? Say, the First.

"Licensing Police will be attending the home of every licensed book owner and newspaper subscriber to check their print media safe."

"Officer Crupkie reminds all legitimate owners that under the Print Media Act, they must take all reasonable precautions to ensure the safe-keeping of their books and newspapers. . ."

What's good for one, is good for all. 'Nuff said.

Markie Marxist sez: "All private gun owners should be required to keep all their guns unloaded and locked up at all times. That way, when our Marxist/warrior/hero/criminals come around to steal them, they can do so without resistance. That empowers our criminals, and the guns being stolen gives us another excuse to ban private gun ownership. It's just common communist sense to require safe storage. You’re not opposed to the safe storage of firearms, are you?"
