ATF agents and a state trooper recently showed up at the home of a man in Delaware, asking to see his legally-purchased guns. Their request was caught on tape by a front door camera, and it was posted online anonymously. In this clip, Glenn shows the interaction and he explains what to say if the same thing happens to YOU: ‘You just have to say, no, get a warrant. I'll see you with a warrant.’

GLENN: I want to play some audio for you here, that I think is stunning. This is the ATF, showing up at an individual's home in Delaware. Listen to what they say to this homeowner.
VOICE: All I'm doing is verifying that you have it. You have two different RFPs. If you have them, I'm out of here. That's how quick it is. Do you have them with you by any chance? Do you think you can unload them and bring them out? Or you can go out to your foyer here, check them out. (inaudible) Yep.
VOICE: The reason we're out here, obviously gun violence, there's been an uptick, so we want to make sure -- there's been a lot of straw purchases. One of the things -- the indicators we get is somebody makes a large gun purchase. And then a lot of times we've been there, like, oh, those guns got taken. We're like -- sure. The -- the idea is when you purchase more than two guns at a time, it generates a multiple sell report. It comes to us, and we have to check it out. That's all it is. You've done nothing wrong. Absolutely zero.
PAT: Then get off my porch, how about that? Wow.
GLENN: No. Get off my porch. You have a right to ask me to show you something, and, you know, this isn't five years ago. Well, this isn't 20 years ago. Twenty years ago, I would have been somebody that the FBI came, and I would be like, oh, sure. I'll help you out. It would have been wrong to do as a citizen with the Second Amendment. But now, I don't trust the FBI. What are you talking about? The ATF, I trust you even less. This is happening. This is in Delaware. Here's what you need to know. And tell your family this. If ATF, FBI, anybody steps up and says, we just need to see your guns. We just need to verify that you have these guns. No. Show me the warrant. And officer, nothing against you, I don't mean to be a headache with you. But I'm sorry. We live in different times. And I've got to exercise my constitutional right. Because I'm afraid of a government that wants to take away guns. So I'm sure you don't. I'm sure this is all on the up and up. Just go back to the judge and get a warrant. Now, you don't have to say all that flowery stuff. You just have to say, no. Get a warrant. I'll see you with a warrant.
GLENN: Because the only way they can do this legally, is if they have evidence that makes them believe, you've used that gun in some illegal way. And if they don't have that, they can't get the warrant. Because it's not their right to do it! So know your Constitution and your rights. No. You'll have to get a warrant. And if they say, okay. Well, here's the warrant. Then you have to do it. But that means, they suspect you of something.
PAT: The interesting thing is, the agent was trying to make it a timed situation. I don't care how long it takes. I just get that. Bring your guns out here. We'll register them. And we'll be out of here. Yeah. That's not the point, sir. Sorry. The point is, constitutionally, you got no business doing this. So see you.
GLENN: Yeah. It is -- this is really, really dangerous. This is really dangerous. And they are preying on people who don't know their rights. Or Americans who are just so polite, they're just like, oh, that's okay. No.
Do you keep your guns here? None of your business. None of your business.
PAT: Right. Right.
The -- this is -- according to the Blaze today, a sheriff in Missouri has refused to release gun owner information to the FBI, even if the agency threatens to arrest him. Republican Scotland County sheriff Brian Whitney wrote to residents in his community on Monday, about the plan to audit Missouri's gun owner records. As the sheriff of Scotland County, I want all my citizens to know that I will not allow, cooperate, or release any concealed weapon information, to the FBI. Even at the threat of a federal arrest. Point-blank. I will go down with the ship, if need be. I love this sheriff. We hope to have him on tomorrow. Now, a good friend of ours, is the current AG in Missouri. He's hopefully going to be joining us here sometime this hour. But he said, that he also sent a letter to the FBI, director, Christopher Ray. Here's what it said, the FBI has absolutely no business poking around in the private information, of those who obtained concealed carry permits in Missouri. The Second Amendment rights of Missourians, will absolutely not be infringed on my watch. I will use the full power of my office, to stop the FBI, which has become relentlessly politicized. And has virtually no credibility. From illegally prying around, in the personal information of Missouri gun owners. He also pointed out that many Missouri residents, didn't trust the FBI. He said, you may wonder why there's such a strong position of federal agents here at the Show Me state, but simply put, Missourians are hard-working, law-abiding citizens, who don't need a national nanny state keeping tabs on us. But more than that, over the last couple of years, we've seen story after story of incompetence and corruption at the highest levels of the FBI. The FBI said in a statement to Fox News, that it would audit -- the audit would be routine, and that no personal information would be at risk. Why -- why do they need that information? Because the FBI gets that information. When you go to buy a gun, you get a background check done by the FBI. So why does the FBI need additional information? They want to know who is carrying that gun. Now, why would you want that? Why do you need to know what citizens are armed, and what citizens are not armed? Especially you're going out the week, that some kid in Indiana legally had a concealed carry permit, he's not a gun freak. He had his gun on him, in -- in a mall, in a food court. They said it took him three minutes to get to the gun. We now know it took him all of 15 seconds. Fifteen seconds, to do what 400 police officers couldn't do in an hour, in Uvalde, Texas. He put eight bullets into that guy. Eight.
This guy -- I mean, I'm a really good shot. I'm a really, really good shot. And I can shoot at a distance. But I have to tell you, 40 yards is a long way to hit a moving target. He was moving. The gunman was moving. And he hit him eight out of ten times. That's remarkable. That kid is a hero.
PAT: Big time.
GLENN: On top of it -- what did he say, Pat, about not doing interviews?
PAT: Yeah. He said I'm not going to talk about this anymore, until the families of the three victims, or the five victims, because two are still alive. But he said, I'm not going to do anything, until the families have had a chance to take care of this, and do all their business. He's just amazing.
GLENN: I have to tell you, I want to know -- I want to know his parents. I would like to interview his parents as well. Because they did something right with that kid.
PAT: Yeah. No question.
GLENN: Not just that he's a good shot, and responsible. But listen how responsible that is. The kid has empathy. In today's world, having empathy. Are you kidding me?
PAT: When especially he could really be cashing in on this. He could be everywhere. He would probably have Nike endorsements now. Well, not Nike, because they're too woke.
GLENN: He wouldn't have any endorsement, he would have TheBlaze endorsement.
PAT: That's about it. He also was moving forward, toward the shooter the whole time. Like you see on Navy SEAL movies, as they move forward and shoot the terrorist. That's what he was doing. Just absolutely courageous. Apparently, he's got integrity. He took care of his girlfriend and the others. He was motioning for other people that he didn't know, in the food court, to get behind him. Incredible. Just really amazing. You would like to think you would do something --
GLENN: Jeez, I wonder what this kid wants to do.
PAT: I don't know. But I think he'll be able to do it, because it's amazing -- how -- how many of us would do that? You would like to think you would do that in a similar circumstance, but you never know until you're in that position.
GLENN: I would like to tell you, I carry a gun, I would like to tell you, in 15 seconds, I would have done that. You don't know. You don't know until you're in the situation. But that's a brave, brave kid. Really brave guy. Let me -- let me explain also why we have the Second Amendment. It's not just to protect yourself and others. But it is also to protect yourself, and this is what the Bill of Rights, is your first shield. It is your first shield, against an out-of-control government. But it only means something, if we know the Bill of Rights. Can you name the first five freedoms? And, by the way, the fifth is not the Fifth Amendment. There's five of them in the First Amendment. Let me -- let me show you why you need to be able to defend yourself as a citizenry. Cut four. Here is China. A video of tanks now in the streets. Can we play this here?
Trying to deter the protesters. See all these people?
GLENN: They're in front of the bank of China. And all these protesters -- I mean, do you know how brave you have to be, to be a protester of the bank of China?
PAT: Yeah. Jeez.
GLENN: I mean, you're dead. You're marked. You're marked for whatever they want to do.
GLENN: These people are showing up, because the banks just closed their doors. And said, no cash for you. And they're not opening back up. And the people are like, I can't afford anything. I need money, so I can buy food.
China says, sorry. No money. What's happening? What's happening to the bank of China? When do we get our money back? None of your business, go home.
GLENN: These people don't stand a chance against the even half decent military of China. And I think I'm giving them more credit than they deserve. They don't stand a chance. There are more people in China, by far, but they don't have any -- they don't have any weapons there. Would have to fight them with sticks. That's why you have a Second Amendment. And don't think that can't happen here.
