Win Moses proposes new "Knock First" Bill
State Representative Win Moses (D-81) has proposed a "Knock First" law. He insists that homeowners might shoot police by mistake. While I agree that the safety of homeowners and police officers is important, this seems to imply that police do not need to knock if they are raiding the house of a non-gun owner. Police should give some notice that they are about to search a residence so to give the resident time to pull their pants or skirt up.
