hand knocking on a doorSome fear that a California bill requiring fire inspections for homeschoolers could release havoc and harassment against parents from liberal lawmakers who hate homeschooling.

The Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) believes that if Assembly Bill 2756 becomes law, then government officials would be empowered to enter a home without a warrant, reasonable cause, or consent.

Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) says it would be a clear violation of the Fourth Amendment.

"This pending legislation would be the most egregious harassment and violation of privacy of homeschoolers than we have ever seen, I believe, in U.S. history," he submits.

Dacus, Brad (PJI)AB 2756 was introduced by assembly members Jose Medina (D-Riverside), Susan Talamantes Eggman (D-Stockton) and Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher (D-San Diego). It was co-written by Assembly Member Freddie Rodriquez (D-Pomona), who contends the measure is intended to help prevent child abuse.

But Dacus says such legislation would actually have the opposite effect.

"California is one of a number of states that already has tremendous abuse by social workers zealously taking children from wonderfully loving families," he reports. "This law would only increase this abuse exponentially."

HSLDA President Mike Smith also fears this bill's passage could influence lawmakers in others states to propose similar laws.
