now what's this??

The following is excerpted from an NRA Alert. Strikes me as "interesting", the appropriate response to the BATFE being a polite "When and if you get a search warant, please stop by, so we can discuss the matter". Until you get a warrant, please leave, for we have nothing to discuss.

In Border States, BATFE Asks: "May We See Your Guns?"

[Editor's Note: Readers of the Grassroots Alert know that we often repeat information that is of particular importance. We do this for two reasons: 1) Each week, we add new Alert recipients who are seeing these stories for the first time; and 2) We repeat stories due to the ongoing relevance of the issue, and to reinforce your need to take the requested actions and to share this information with your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners. The story below ran recently, but is even more important now due to a widely read Houston Chronicle article on the issue.]

NRA-ILA has recently received several inquiries from NRA members in Border States who have been visited or called by agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE). In some cases, agents have asked to enter these people's homes, and requested serial numbers of all firearms the members possess.

That's it exactly, kkb.

Alan, you really should "look around" before you post.

Closed as a duplicate.
