You could have shortened your post down a lot if you said, "I don't understand the law, but here's my interpretation of the events based on my limited understanding of a constitutional amendment."
Even if the phone call was an anonymous tip, once he arrived and saw items that resembled firearms, he had the authority to investigate said items. He didn't have the authority to do an entire search (something that would require a search warrant), but he did have the authority to walk up to the items that were in clear view from the street, as the anonymous tip and the items together were enough to warrant such an action. After he investigated those items, he got off the property as asked.

You know I just decided to watch the video again more carefully at the beginning of it.
I found it made me feel really bad to see a grown man doing his job humiliated by a woman like that.
It was clear the camera was already waiting as the car came and as the officer walked up he clearly had, had many probably similarly humiliating dealings with this person and that is why it was not as smooth as it could have been.
He went right to the guns...looked...note one is hanging up so that it can clearly be seen and not just on the table. He looks at them, she barges up telling him he has no right to be there before he even gets a breath.
I would not want anyone to be treated like that for doing their job. Don't enough REAL incidents happen to catch on video without stupid people making up scenes and using their little kids to do it?
Without witnessing a crime, or having reasonable suspicion

No mate, the douches that called the cops wasted police time! These people in the video didn't ask the cops to come okay! Why do you hate law abiding citizens so much?
Okay Ben I like your threads but this one... I'm not taking the bait. So they are selling Airsoft guns, no big deal once that is known. But they could very well be real M4s from a distance, can they not? They got a call from some other concerned citizen and are just responding to it.
