Misstep in gun bill could defeat the effort

See on Scoop.itInteresting News in General

One of the major gun-control efforts in Olympia this session calls for the sheriff to inspect the homes of assault-weapon owners. The bill’s backers say that was a mistake.

Scott Bergman‘s insight:

Sen. Adam Kline, D-Seattle, a lawyer who typically is hyper-attuned to civil-liberties issues, said he did not know the bill authorized police searches because he had not read it closely before signing on.

Do these lawmakers not understand they they have to read the bills before signing them???
