This Saturday the National Capital Area ACLU is organizing a training day to educate the community on how to prevent warrantless police searches of their homes. Scott Morgan and I will be there representing FyR, and I’ll try to get some interviews with my new video camera that I’ll post online.
This event is in response to MPD’s new “Safe Homes” initiative, which sends officers out to act as door-to-door canvassers asking residents to voluntarily let them search their homes for illegal guns. (FYI: Until the SCOUS rules otherwise, handgun possession in DC is a felony).
Needless to say, many residents aren’t appreciating these unsolicited offers. Oh yeah, if the police are at your door, be like Valerie.
