MA Politician Wants Unannounced
Home Searches by Police to
Enforce Gun Law

Breitbart Big Government, by AWR Hawkins

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/12/2013 9:44:50 AM

Swampscott, Massachusetts Selectman Barry Greenfield is pushing a measure to give police the authority to conduct home searches to check proper storage of firearms. Greenfield said "state law requires Massachusetts gun owners to keep their firearms locked away or rendered inoperable." There are "600 registered gun owners in [Swampscott]," and the selectman wants police to be able to drop in unannounced, enter the homes of each gun owner, and verify compliance. According to the Swampscott Patch, Greenfield has spoken with Swampscott Police Chief Ron Madigan about this issue, and has spoken with other selectmen. At least one of the selectmen-

Perhaps the gun owners of MA should search Greenfield to see if he has a brain.

Why bother - all they have to do is say they thought the smelled marijuana and in they go! Plus if it is a drug investigation they get to take all the guns, money, cars etc. and keep them for the police. This is already the law folks. The 4th Amendment is a complete relic.

If Police Chief Ron Madigan didn´t laugh in his face, he should be sacked.

In fact, Madigan should consider arresting Greenfield for conspiracy to commit acts including breaking & entering, criminal menacing and false alarm/misusing police manpower.

Amazing, isn´t it? The left and the ACLU will squeal like pigs if a government takes steps to crack down on real criminals. But if a law is to their liking like gun control or ´hate speech´ they would cheerfully send a SWAT team to enforce it at gunpoint.

I´ve supported the police all my life, but I also realize how the gestapo and stasi began. Otherwise good men (and now women) were given more and more power and began to misuse it, as humans are wont to do. Power corrupts, so I can no longer support the police without question. Like most Ldotters I always told my children and grandchildren to regard the police as their friends. No longer. Now it´s getting to the point where I would have to tell them to be the first to shoot.

Wonderful idea - it´s for the children right?

My nephew was stopped by the police because they claimed to have smelled marijuana in his vehicle (false) and then asked to search his vehicle. He said "I do not consent to having this vehicle searched..." to which they replied, "Where´d you learn that?"

They wound up ticketing him for having too dim a bulb lighting his rear license plate (new car, new inspection sticker). So... this nittwit Barry wants to give police more power? Let them search HIS house on demand. Cops will abuse any power politicians are idiot enough to give them.

Two thoughts:

If guns are locked up or disabled, they are not arms. They are decorations.

Those who do not register their firearms, (criminals) do not get their homes searched.

Does Swampsott Selectman Barry Greenfield actually have a brain? Does he know the English Parliament Townshend Acts of 1767 - supporting searches w general warrants - led to the Boston Massacre?

Perhaps Greenfield is a descendant of Mass Lt Gov Thos Hutchinson? Ben Franklin let leak Hutchinson´s letters to the press and Boston Sons of Liberty stripped Hutchinson´s house down to the frame. He fled Boston before the Revolutionary war and died in exile in England.

It would be smart for police commissioners and unions to come out proactively and strongly against such rantings from an unhinged fascist.
People judge folks by the company they keep. If local and state police, sheriffs, and other LEOs condemn these statements in no uncertain terms, then the people will remain confident and supportive of the police. If not, LEOs will be seen as supportive of illegal home invasions, and the consequences will be predictable.

A recall election is in order.

Twenty five citizens can apply for a recall, then they must collect signatures totaling at least 15 percent of the turnout for the last two town elections.

I apologize for the followup.

Apparently, less than 10,000 folks voted in the last election in Swampscott. That means that around 1500 signatures would drive a recall election. The exact numbers are knowable. That´s certainly do-able in a town with 600 registered gun owners.

From what I gathered, Swampscott is a fairly affluent town of around 14,000, about 12 miles or so from Boston. Mostly white. Close to 6,000 households. 600 registered gun owners, according to this article.

Just wondering what those gun owners think about a petition to get "Selectman Barry" de-selected, and getting a replacement with a bit of knowledge and wisdom to go along with their sense of authority.

Ever since the President of France was caught cheating on his partner of seven years — with a gorgeous French movie star, no less — the world’s been obsessed with imagining world leaders having affairs with hot women from the entertainment industry. (See: the recent Bill Clinton/Liz Hurley rumors.) But now, a famous French photographer just upped the presidential fan fiction ante with his claims that Barack Obama is having an affair with noted hot entertainer Beyoncé — and that the Washington Post is going to break this story. Oh! And he’s supposedly getting divorced from Michelle Obama, too! (He’s

HOUSTON— It was care fit for a king: The yellowing parchment was fitted inside a custom-designed aluminum and steel case with monitors, then wrapped in specially made packaging. Once it was on the plane, a canon chancellor nervously tracked the flight as it crossed the Atlantic Ocean. That document, a rarely seen copy of the Magna Carta, had never before left England´s shores and only once been outside its home in the Hereford Chapel near the Welsh border. Now, the famous charter, written nearly 800 years ago and considered one of the most important documents in the history of democracy,

Every conservative by now should have noticed that February has become Ronald Reagan Month for Republicans.

Throughout the nation, county and statewide Republican groups have been changing their longtime annual Lincoln Day dinners into Reagan Day dinners. I’m speaking on Reagan multiple times this month, including at the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, where we’re releasing (pardon the plug) my new book that endeavors to answer the question “What is a Reagan conservative?” Thus, this is

And the truth is, Mike runs the party.” Brooks is partly right. The immigration debate is about whose influence is primary within the Republican Party.

SAN ANTONIO — We recommend incumbent John Cornyn for the GOP´s U.S. Senate nomination, based on unmatched experience and decades of service to Texas. The theme among a bevy of challengers seems to be that Cornyn is a CINO, a conservative in name only. This is not just counter-intuitive but counter-factual. Various ratings — liberal and conservative — have agreed on one thing, Cornyn´s conservative credentials are genuine. Not conservative?

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

Long before the scandals — Woody taking off with Mia’s adopted teen daughter Soon-Yi, Mia accusing Woody of molesting their 7-year-old daughter, Dylan — the Allen-Farrow family was regarded as the ultimate cosmopolitan clan, a multiracial brood of 11 children,

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech.

Rand Paul is tops among Alaska Republicans at 15 percent followed by Palin, who is tied with Sen. Ted Cruz at 13 percent; Jeb Bush at 12 percent, Mike Huckabee, 11 percent; New Jersey Gov. Chris

Incredible how Fox News Corp. talking head Bill O’Reilly—America’s biggest, television talking head who’s out there professing “Obama’s not a bad guy”—thinks he can get away with ‘pin-heading’ John Boehner for “pandering to radio talk show hosts” on amnesty. Guess bloviating Bill never takes the time to tune in to radio talk show hosts where John Boehner has been persona non grata for some time. Boehner finds no comfortable quarters from radio talk show giants Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity or Mark Levin, who continue to castigate the guy who’s a dead ringer for the cowardly lion in the Wizard of

ASHINGTON — Michelle Obama says a gay University of Missouri football player is “an inspiration to all of us.” The first lady took to Twitter on Monday to comment on Michael Sam, the all-American college player who announced Sunday that he is gay. Mrs. Obama says she “couldn’t be prouder” of Sam’s courage, both on and off the field. The tweet was signed “-mo,” which is how the White House marks messages personally sent by the first lady. Sam could become the first openly homosexual player in the NFL. He’s scheduled to participate in the league’s weeklong scouting camp, where potential draftees

Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham battled the rest of the Fox News Sunday panel over immigration, arguing that immigration reform and current enforcement of immigration laws were weakening the American workforce, even as her fellow panelists countered that reform would bolster the economy. “I think what we’re seeing here is a split inside the Republican Party between two staunch conservatives,” host Chris Wallace said, going on to ply Ingraham with a Wall Street Journal editorial that called flinching on reform “de facto amnesty.” “As far as I can tell, the Wall Street Journal is on the side of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer,

Count Polly Lower among those who quit their jobs because of the health-care law. It happened in September, when her boss abruptly changed her job description. She went from doing payroll, which she liked, to working on her boss’s schedule, which she loathed. At another time, she might have had to grit her teeth and accept the new position because she needed the health benefits. But with the health-care law soon to take effect, she simply resigned — and hasn’t looked back. “It was wonderful. It was very freeing,” said Lower, 56, of Bourbon, Ind., who is now babysitting her

BAGHDAD — A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said. The militants belonged to a group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, which is fighting the Shiite-dominated army of the Iraqi government, mostly in Anbar Province. But they are also linked to bomb attacks elsewhere and other fighting that has thrown Iraq deeper into sectarian violence.

Even nearly three years out, it’s become “common knowledge” which has been repeated by more folks than you can count. (Including yours truly) Hillary Clinton is going to run for President. How could she not? And assuming she does, she will most certainly win the Democrat nomination. On top of that, she will present a daunting challenge to the GOP candidate, no matter whether the nominee is “establishment” or “grassroots” or from the Planet Ork. But I’m seeing an increasing amount of speculation that perhaps the conventional wisdom is neither. Does she want to spend two more years on the
