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.

Police Chief Norm Jacobs said he doesn't expect the phone to be ringing off the hook with requests for police to search their homes. He nevertheless hopes the program will encourage people to think about gun violence as an infectious disease like Ebola, and a home inspection like a vaccine to help build up the city's immune system.


No thanks. Letting the police come and snoop around your home is a bad idea. A very bad idea. I'm sort of amazed this was even proposed and will be even more amazed if anyone takes the guy up on this.

I suppose some people amy worry one of their youths is hiding a gat at home, but man I wouldn't want to risk the cops finding something else or turning aorund and charging a parent with something.

Hmmm.

Sounds like another experiment is being conducted.

They will measure and collect data for analysis.

Well, it might be wise to have the police come check your house for guns, after you have shuffled them off somewhere temporarily. Then when they leave just bring them back and the paperwork looks good.


Gee, the system in this country wants us all to be liars and deceivers to fit in with those on capital hill and in the state capitals.

Beloit? An American city? Sounds European / Eastern European.

I really hope not. It's a horrible idea. I am pretty far from freaked out by cops but there is no way I'm letting one search my car or house without a warrant.

Sounds like the easiest way in the world for that specific department to frame anybody willing to comply, or to at least set up the necessary steps for a grander scheme. Searching out a target that met their criteria.

Part of me here thinks you should hide your guns offsite, let the police come, and then mark your house as clean. Then bring the guns back in.

The other part of me screams loudly about the #1 rule in a police state. You never bring the police to your home, for any reason. They will find something, and you will pay.

The more promiscuous guns must be having babies and not registering them with the ATF...

Sooooo... I'm confused.

Is this for all those people who have lost various guns around their house over the years like spare change in the couch?

"Ya never know where one might turn up so you should let us search your house just to be sure." Really? That's their justification?

The police in Beloit all need to have their own homes searched for constitutions and brain cells. Because I guarantee you we'll find neither at any of their houses or in their own police department downtown, for that matter.

Can anyone say "Peacekeepers from Hunger Games have arrived in America?" Well if you can't, you don't need to, because I just did. You're welcome. Smh. My relationship with my country is love/hate.

"They" will not stop such exploits until police are searching door to door,

Searching for "Them".

Sorry about telling the truth.

Beloit Wisconsin?

Yo fellow wisconsin-dweller! I'm in a suburb well outside of Milwaukee. That's pretty weird stuff. Good thing neither I nor anyone I know owns any guns. Has there been a lot of gun violence in Beloit or something?

Smoke and mirrors. They already know where all the guns are.

I see this as really quite ominous, combine this with civil fortiture laws and see what you get.

I agree its an experiment in the same mold as the Boston martial law experiment. If it works, they may extend civil forfiture laws to guns and then perhaps to illegal substances, then on to breached copyrighted material in the house.

Who knows where they plan to take civial forfiture laws.

For all we know they may even be planning use civil fortiture laws as a general wealth and property stripping (looting) law

Does waiving your Constitutional rights set a precedent?
How long does it last?
If the authorities are in your house searching and you change you mind.... will they stop searching?

Every day must be a slow day from crime there. No current crime or old, unsolved cases to work. All that is left is to reach out and offer to help people find unwanted guns in their house. Nice. They should also institute cross walk assistance for older ladies.
