D.C. police are going door-to-door Monday in one of the city's crime-plagued neighborhoods, asking residents for permission to search their homes for guns and other illegal contraband.Pretty flimsy excuse for the searches though and full-on Nanny Statism.
The program, called the Safe Homes Initiative, will offer homeowners and renters limited amnesty for possessing any contraband found by police.
The program is aimed at removing guns and drugs kept by children and young adults in their parents' homes. The homeowners will be asked to sign a form, consenting to the search.

What? Well At Least They are Asking to Search
But the fallout from this story will no doubt be a lawsuit saying that some people were intimidated into permitting the search.
