Gestapo Cometh?

At least if you live in CA, AZ,

“On this day, agents weren’t wearing raid jackets or combat boots and weren’t armed with warrants. Guns were hidden under civilian shirts.

[A] tip took agents on a 30-minute drive from the shack to a sprawling home with a pool in the back and an American flag out front.

It turned out two handguns, of a type drug gangsters prefer, were bought by a pastor for target practice.”

What is so frightening about this story is that we now have ATF agents going through FFL records and doing “polite raids”. It says they request entry. But let’s be honest, what do you think the result would be if you refused?  How long until a bunch of thugs (plain clothed officers) in vests with M16’s would be knocking down your door?  No crime, no suspicion of a crime other than you having exerted your right to keep and bear arms.

Frankly, it makes me want to go out and buy 10 guns. Alas, if only I had the $$$.
