Home inspection clause in gun control bill

Proposed gun control legislation in Washington State would give sheriffs the power to inspect gun owners' storage site once a year. Danny Westneat notes in the Seattle Times:
As Orwellian as that sounds, it isn’t hypothetical. The notion of police home inspections was introduced in a bill last week in Olympia.
Of course, now that the provision has been outed in the media, sponsors are saying it was a mistake. One even admits he didn't read the bill thoroughly before signing on.

Update: The inspection provision has been dropped. But it didn't happen until being outed in MSM.
