It's all about Zoning Laws. The guy was obviously ignorant of the zoning laws on his property.
I wouldn't like it if my neighbors house became a noisy factory either. I use to work in a machine shop, I could only imagine the noises coming from a modern gunsmiths house daily.
I'm sure you can still produce guns in your own home as long as it's not a business and just for personal use. As soon as someone finds out it's a business you will get in trouble with zoning laws.

I dont think were talking about a huge commercial adventure.
Just a guy fixing some guns with a hammer and screwdrivers.
