As the great Ronald Reagan once said, “The top 9 most terrifying words in the English Language are: I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.”
The unfortunate reality of living in Biden’s America is beginning to set in. Lawful gun owners and the U.S. Constitution are under severe attack. The Second Amendment has never been more in jeopardy and Democrats are foaming at the mouth to disarm the population.
Federal agents have stepped up monitoring efforts of law-abiding gun owners. They’re especially interested in individuals they believe are making “straw purchases” — or someone illegally buying firearms for someone else.
Any excuse will be made to place lawful gun owners on a federal list only to be attacked later on once the administration really unleashes its anti-Second Amendment push.
The terrifying reality of losing one’s Second Amendment rights was on full display after a shocking video circulated on social media.
A warrantless agent from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), with a Delaware police officer as backup, harassed a law-abiding gun owner at his home last week.
A doorbell camera caught the entire exchange on video.

The footage shows ATF agents demanding to see the man’s firearms despite not having a warrant. They claim a recent purchase of multiple firearms flagged this individual in the federal system, thus prompting agents to make a home visit.
ATF agents requested that the homeowner “unload them and bring them out” referring to two separate firearms, and he reluctantly obliged.
The homeowner revealed he retrieved one of his rifles and showed it to the officers. They reportedly wrote down the serial number and demurred when asked if he needed to retrieve the rest of his firearms. They then apologized for inconveniencing him and wished him a good night.
According to one of the federal agents, “The reason we’re out here is, obviously, gun violence is at an uptick. We want to make sure – we’ve been having a lot of issues with straw purchases.”
That doesn’t give ATF agents (or any other law enforcement officer) the right to enter someone’s home without a warrant and make demands about lawful gun purchases.
The officer reassured the gun owner, claiming he “did nothing wrong — absolutely zero” but still asked prying questions about his whereabouts.
“I noticed you were stopped in Philly, though, with one of your guns?” the ATF agent asked.
Right, because nothing puts a gun owner at ease than knowing the federal government is tracking your location.
Did we mention there was no warrant involved?
