Because guns are like Ebola, or something.
Police in Beloit are launching a new effort to reduce gun violence in which they’re asking city residents to volunteer to have police search their homes for guns.
“Gun violence is as serious as the Ebola virus is being represented in the media, and we should fight it using the tools that we’ve learned from our health providers,” he said.
Jacobs said he hopes some searches will result in the discovery of guns they didn’t know were in their own homes.
That’s right, you have to let the Government inspect your house because you’re too stupid to know that you have guns in it.
As part of the community, to stop the violence effort, the Beloit Police Department is offering the opportunity of a home visit by a Beloit Police Officer to legally inspect your house for weapons you may not even know are there. If you are interested in this program, simply call to request a visit by a Beloit Police Officer. An officer will respond to your house when available, verify you are authorized to give consent and ask you to sign a form. Then, the officer will go through the areas, you designate, with you to look for weapons.
As part of a gun control bill, Democrats in the State of Washington tried to make such inspections mandatory.
