In a video posted online, ATF agents show up at the door of a Deleware man’s home asking to see his firearms that he has recently purchased.
“All I’m doing is verifying that you have it, you got two different purchases. If you have them, I’m out of here. That’s how quick it is,” one of the ATF agents tells the man.
“Do you have them with you by any chance?” the ATF agent asks the man, who explains that they’re sitting in his home gun safe.
“If you can unload them and bring them out, we can go out to your foyer here, check them out, write the serial numbers and we’re out of here,” the ATF agent goes on to say.
“It will take five seconds,” the other ATF agent interjected from the front yard, before the a Delaware cop butt’s in to explain that “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.”
“The idea is that when you purchase more than two guns at a time it generates a multiple sales report and it comes to us and we have to check them out,” the ATF agent on the front porch explained. “That’s all that is. You did nothing wrong, absolutely zero,” he explained.
Ultimately, the man obliged the ATF and Delaware state cop, going back into his home to retrieve his firearms from his gun safe.
