Strange program in Philadelphia
According to this story, the city is establishing a program where, if a citizen consents to an officer searching their house for guns, they won't be charged based on any guns found.
I could grasp the idea of an amnesty, but can't see the relevance of consent to search. Of course, the reporter might be off base here. Or maybe the idea is that a person only gets amnesty if he lets officers search the house to make sure that's the only one. (One problem with drafting amnesties, BTW, is figuring out how to exclude someone who's already cornered: you don't want a team to execute a search warrant and be told as they enter "there are sawed-off shotguns upstairs, I want to turn them in and get the benefit of the amnesty."
I'll stay in AZ, thank you. Where if an officer asks you what guns you have in your house, the next question is likely to be how much you want for the Glock.
