The Seattle Times has the story.
What's your opinion? Wouldn't it be faster and better and easier if the police already had this information? Well, you know why they don't right?Three dozen legislators are taking the State Patrol to task for sending a letter to gun dealers that they fear is an unconstitutional "fishing expedition."
The Patrol, which is searching for one of its semiautomatic rifles that might have been stolen, concedes the letter from an investigator "was not as well worded as it should be," Patrol spokesman Bob Calkins said. "We touched a nerve we had no intention of touching."
A new letter is going out to gun dealers stressing that any information they might provide is voluntary, Calkins said.
