Fwiw, about 6 years ago I was at home alone at The Mountain Lair in WV & heard some MORON literally POUNDING ON the outside door. Going to the door & looking out the 'peephole" I saw two men in suits (Suits in that area of WV mean "preacher", "revenuer" or "government AH", btw.).
I owned the door & asked them who they were & what they wanted. They showed me badges/credentials as BATFE Special Agents & asked (more or less politely) to come in.
(One said, "We're on official government business" in a RUDE tone of voice. The other, in a much nicer tone, said, "We would like to discuss your private arsenal. There has been a complaint.")
I let the 2 into the house & then asked, "What sort of complaint?" - The more polite of the 2 said that one of our neighbors was "concerned" that we had so many guns. - He then asked me how many that were in the home.
(I said, "I haven't counted lately but likely 150 or so.")
"The RUDE turkey" asked my WHY we have so many guns. = I said that it wasn't any of his business but that the 3 of us are retired military officers, that my brothers are Reserve Deputies for the county and that we are federally-licensed collectors of C&R items.
(The 2 men's attitude suddenly changed & they looked "sheepish".)
I said, "Don't you KNOW that?" - They said, "We didn't.".
After that, I invited the 2 of them to stay for "potluck" & visit, as my little brother was to return home soon. - They did stay to eat, met the other 2 brothers, admired our antique collection & we've NOT had another "visit" since.
(IF the BATFE was more POLITE, didn't listen to crackpot's SILLY complaints & "tended to their own business", the BATFE wouldn't be seen as "cowboys".
just my OPINIONS, satx
