ATF searches local’s home, who happens to be my friend
This will probably be in the paper tomorrow.
Reader, commenter, arfcommer, and friend Shoot-N-Scoot just called to tell me that:
*The ATF is at his house
*They’re asking if he has any machine guns
*They have seized his house pending approval of a search warrant
*Told him he was free to go but they were going to search his house
He did the smart thing and left. He also called his lawyer. He (like me) is one of those gun owners who meticulously follows the law to avoid trouble. In that situation, I, myself, would be wondering if I had all my I’s dotted and T’s crossed as there are a lot of technicalities out there. His only crime is apparently marrying his ex-wife, who has supposedly called the ATF and said he has machine guns. He does not have machine guns and is one of my friends who I discuss AR-15s with.
He asked that I spread the word. More details as I get them.
Update: Oh, and when he called, the first words out of his mouth were:
The ATF is here.
And the next words out of his mouth were:
They have some nice AR-15s with EOTech 552s
Only a true gun nut takes the time to admire the equipment being used in a situation like that.
