Yep, that 20-year-old felony is a problem. This is why I believe that when you do your time that your Constitutional rights should be fully restored. Of course this whole denial of rights due to an ancient conviction is by design. The whole point is to keep people from exercising their rights whether it is to vote, serve their country or bear arms. It is also a testiment as to why it's extremely important to have multiple caches of firearms and supplies in many locations known only to you. Addly enough the feral government determined that they needed 150 agents armed to the teeth to raid a man's home. Sounds like overkill to the extreme. But when you have cool toys you may as well use them. Also shows that they are not very confident in their abilities to confront one man. A normal person would simply stake out the house and then pull him over when he left the house - a difficult concept for a government drone to figure out on his own. Yes, it would save a lot of money and be simple but then it would not likely make it to the news media either. High profile busts (even those manufactured like this one) are needed for today's law enforcement to justify their wanton waste of tax dollars. Besides, it makes them feel like "manly men" doing a home invasion and terrorizing residents and the entire neighborhood. Bonus points if these Tackleberrys get to shoot something, a family pet or someone - anyone. We certainly do live in "interesting times" in this New World Order society we created.
There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. - Ayn rand
