WA: SW for firearms in house permitted forcing open gun safe

A search warrant for firearms necessarily includes the ability of the police to open a gun safe found in the place to be searched, even though the officer was aware there might be a gun safe and it wasn’t specifically mentioned. State v. Witkowski, 2018 Wash. App. LEXIS 941 (Apr. 24, 2018).

“[P]etitioner has failed to show how trial counsel’s failure to seek suppression of the search warrant on the basis of an alleged insufficient description of the petitioner’s property would have affected the outcome of his trial.” Rogers v. State, 2018 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 305 (Apr. 23, 2018).*
