    US v. Waldner (10/10/05 - No. 04-3415)
    Denial of defendant's motion to suppress evidence is reversed where the police officers' entry into a basement office in defendant's home was not justified as part of a protective sweep, and the evidence seized in the office should have been suppressed.

    Guy has a supressed rifle - no paperwork on it - in a gun cabinet. Wife gets restraining order & cops come to serve it on him. Cop walks into room (home office) where gun cabinet is located & things start flowing downhill from that point.

    The court's decision is appropriate and correct, and the reasoning the court provides is clear, useful and understandable (a hat trick is not easy to come by in court decisions :evil: ).

    I'm still upset that the guy has not gone through the :cuss: :banghead: :fire: hoops required to pay the tax on the supressor. But that's another rant.

    stay safe.

    Because ignoring the hoops will not make them go away, and ignoring them gives more reason for those who created the hoops to scream that the hoops are necessary.

    stay safe.

    It worked for the Blue Laws.
    Those people scream anyway. They don't need reason.

    Professor, I can't understand you. I don't insist that you call it 'government' -- I just want you to state what rules you think are necessary to insure equal freedom for all.

    Dear lady, I'll happily accept your rules.

    But you don't seem to want any rules!

    True. But I will accept any rules that you feel necessary to your freedom. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.

    Maybe we can get OSHA to sue the BATFE to allow suppressors ???

    I've never seen anything in the Second Amendment about taxes on the arms we keep and bear.

    Isn't pushing taxes a form of regulation?
