Bob Barr on Boston's "Safe Homes Initiative"

He says it nicer than I would:

The bottom line is, if the police in Boston or any other city have probable cause to believe illegal firearms or other evidence of unlawful activity is located in a home, they ought to investigate and —- if armed with a warrant based on probable cause —- search that home. But to go through this charade of searching without securing warrants, under the guise of obtaining "consent" of persons who may or may not be the parents of a child, under the transparently false premise that nothing will happen to them if they refuse or if something unlawful is found, is unfair and constitutionally deficient.
I just call it bullshit.

A warrant needed to search a home? Inconceivable!.
