Washington State Firearm Confiscation Law Found Unconstitutional LEGAL & LEGISLATION NEWS Washington State Firearm Confiscation Law Found Unconstitutional Earlier this year, in a ruling of first impression in Washington State, the Kitsap County District Court decided that the state�s compulsory �firearm surrender� laws violated the Fourth and Fifth Amendments and the analogous provisions in the state constitution. �In our constitutional system of government, individuals have rights that the government and its agents (including courts) must respect. Among those rights are the right to be free from compelled self-incrimination under the Fifth Amendment, the right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures under the Fourth Amendment, and their counterparts under Washington�s constitution.�

"This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it." Abraham Lincoln

    Why is it politicians refuse to understand the defination of "infringed"?

    I can't believe they misspelled "Pork and Beans!"

    Although that sounds very good, what about the 2nd Amendment?

    "Shall not be infringed."

    Well, we are being "Infringed."

    I had this typed up, but refrained from posting it. Bustedknee nailed it.
