Massachusetts Moves To Inspect Gun Owners’ Homes
Bureaucrat Proposes Violating Fourth and Second Amendments to Protect Children
November 10, 2013
In Massachusetts, a bureaucrat wants police to enter private residences and “safeguard” guns under the pretense that violating the Constitution will be good for the children.
Barry Greenfield, a Swampscott, Massachusetts selectman, cited a state law requiring citizens to keep their firearms locked up and rendered inoperable.
“We need the ability to enforce the state law,” Greenfield said.
In an email to a constituent concerned about the proposal, Greenfield cited school shootings.
“The research I have read states that 65% or more of school shootings are caused by kids having access to their parents guns. It would be great to avoid another situation like that,” he wrote.
“I’m a volunteer elected official. I’m trying to do what I can to prevent Sandy Hook happening in my town,” Greenfield added.
