So Who Wrote The Illegal Search Bill?

WA politician introduces an 'Assault Weapon Ban' that includes the provision of allowing the authorities to search your home annually for 'compliance'.  When called on it (by other anti-gunners), he  (and the other sponsors) said it was a 'mistake':
The prime sponsor, Sen. Ed Murray, D-Seattle, also condemned the search provision in his own bill, after I asked him about it. He said Palmer is right that it’s probably unconstitutional.
“I have to admit that shouldn’t be in there,” Murray said.
And they blamed 'unnamed staff'. 

Here's the trick. The guy filed the exact same bill w/ said provision in 2010.  Just nobody paid attention to it then.
 16 (5) In order to continue to possess an assault weapon that was
17 legally possessed on the effective date of this section, the person
18 possessing the assault weapon shall do all of the following:
19 (a) Safely and securely store the assault weapon. The sheriff of
20 the county may, no more than once per year, conduct an inspection to
21 ensure compliance with this subsection;
So who did write the bill and why didn't any of these polished turds read the bill?

Oh right, because all they care about is banning guns and they don't care how many other rights they trample on in the process. They're only upset they got caught.

Just the fact that they're admitting they sign bills without reading them should get them canned. Who else can be that incompetent at their job and not get fired?

It's pretty funny how even an anti-gunner is thinking that maybe we're not so paranoid when they're slipping this stuff in and feigning ignorance/incompetence.

LCAV, most likely.

We've been discussing this one quite a bit, it's garbage. I emailed all of my reps and all the responses, save one, were extremely critical of this proposed ban. The best statement was along the lines of "The only good thing about this bill is that it has no chance of becoming law." That's quite heartening when your representatives respond in a manner that says they are in outright disagreement with this bill, as opposed to a canned response that says "I support your rights," and like I said, all but one response said that this just plain isn't going to happen.

So they're either incompetent("I didn't know this was in my bill!), or liars.

Looks like they're liars
