Don't forget to check the back of the toilet
Things not allowed in the home or car of a person on probation in the state of Virginia:
Guns (including BB guns or Airsoft guns, paintball guns, or anything that resembles a gun)
Knives (unless they are deemed for use in the kitchen, and this includes knives for decoration, such as swords)
Drugs (of course - however, if someone else in the house is prescribed a controlled substance, that person must have said drug under lock and key)
Anything gang related (which includes Pirates t-shirts, Duke University sweatshirts, and paw prints - evidently The Girlchild and I are possible members of some gang out of Fresno with our paw print tattoos)
And how will determine that your home is free of said things? Why by searching it, of course!
Places that may/probably will be searched:
I'm not kidding.
Now before you go off on a "they're criminals, there should be restrictions, blah blah blah", cool your jets while I get to the point I am trying to make.
What prevents someone from getting a pocket knife? Do they ask for ID? Of course not. Can you buy a BB gun without a background check? Of course you can. So what is preventing someone from getting any of these things after the inspection is over? What's preventing someone from hiding all that stuff at Uncle Bob's house until after the inspection? Nothing and nothing. If you were going to hide a gun in the house, would you stick it in a drawer knowing someone was coming to inspect? Only if you're pretty stupid.
Do you know how many places one could hide something in plain sight if they really wanted to? Now honestly. I've seen a lot of forensics shows. I've read a lot of forensics books. I haven't given the topic a lot of thought, but I can see numerous places just here in my living room where I could stash something and it not be suspicious.
Okay, rant over. Gonna go get my nine out of the freezer so if I decide to kill something in cold blood, my gun will be cold and ready. (Kidding!!)
