For crying out loud, with the cities all going broke this is a ridiculous way to use the limited resources they have. Time to let it go - make it legal and move on.

Hard liner Justice Roberts had a concurring opinion that the scent of pot roast and the sound of NPR is enough for a warrantless search.

Where I live, we have a Castle Law.

Any intruder, police or otherwise, gets greeted with 8 rounds of 00 buckshot.

Yeah, I'll no doubt go down but I'll take the first two through the door with me.

"The right of self-defense is the first law of nature; in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and when the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction." -- Henry St. George Tucker, in Blackstone'ss 1768 Commentaries on the Laws of England

“When a strong man, fully armed, guards his palace, his possessions are safe.”-- Jesus at Luke 11:21

"Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily lives, and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom." -- John Fitzgerald Kennedy

The government desperately wants to get into your home any which way possible. In some states, if drugs are found in your home or car the state can take possession of the home or car.

Just imagine your teenage kid is smoking a joint with his friends while you're at work. Next thing you know the cops show up and your home becomes property of the state.

In my neighborhood the cops used to bring the drugs along with them... Just in case that they didn't find any.

Totally agree, the govt is getting way out of hand in the direction of picking on the the common citizen. Want to take this and that from ya, ya can't even fight them on it, they will come back meaner and stronger. Time to take action and defend our homes and all inside. Freedoms are being taken away every minute, now this subject. Guess they need bucks to pay the cop's pensions. Go figure!

Don't imagine. What you described actually happened in Bandera County a few years back, except it was a home and small ranch.
