Proposed Washington State law would require that police go inside gun owners homes once a year to check guns

I wish that the nonsensical parts of the proposed assault weapon ban that this provision is part of would also get critically discussed, but at least this might keep the law from getting passed.  From the Seattle Times:
Forget police drones flying over your house. How about police coming inside, once a year, to have a look around? 
As Orwellian as that sounds, it isn’t hypothetical. The notion of police home inspections was introduced in a bill last week in Olympia. 
That it’s part of one of the major gun-control efforts pains me. It seemed in recent weeks lawmakers might be headed toward some common-sense regulation of gun sales. But then last week they went too far. By mistake, they claim. But still too far. 
“They always say, we’ll never go house to house to take your guns away. But then you see this, and you have to wonder.” 
That’s no gun-rights absolutist talking, but Lance Palmer, a Seattle trial lawyer and self-described liberal who brought the troubling Senate Bill 5737 to my attention. It’s the long-awaited assault-weapons ban, introduced last week by three Seattle Democrats. . . .

Question: If one lives in a state that, by lousy luck, happens to enact some draconian "gun safety" legislation - what can one do? "Move away" comes to mind, but sometimes that's not too easy. This is a sincere question. I don't know the answer myself. A related question is what if (God forbid!) Obama and his cronies get there way, after, for example, the Supreme Court has absorbed another liberal or two.
I see the demonstrations (on the web) of those poor souls in the UK and Australia - but it seems to do them no good. They are forever a disarmed people. Please God, we CAN'T let that happen here!
