Boston PD To 'Ask' To Search Kids' Rooms For Guns

Boston, home of the strictest gun control laws in nation and yet awash in so-called "gun violence," is pushing a draconian new measure to "fight crime." Here is another piece from the Boston Globe, on the same subject, noting that civil liberties experts have some concerns. NO KIDDING! If parents decline to submit to the voluntary search of their childrens' rooms, city officials say the officers will just turn around and leave. Somehow that seems just too simple. My bet is parents will be mildly (and legally) coerced -- guilted -- into letting the police snoop around.
