Submission + - I for one welcome our new gun searching overlords (yahoo.com)

UnCivil Liberty writes: "The Boston Police Department has started a new program where they will ask parents to voluntarily submit to a search of their house if it is suspected their child owns a weapon. The catch: "Weapons found in the child's possession will be seized, and no charges will be filed unless the weapon is linked to a violent crime." Of course, by allowing police to search your property you are opening yourself up to a whole new can of worms should they find anything besides a gun. The usual suspects are sounding the war drums, with the ACLU distributing leaflets to the neighborhoods. Regardless of your stance on the 2nd Amendment, the privacy implications and risk of abuse by intimidation is the real issue here."
