I hate it when the number of a thing is used to drum up excitement and fear.
So what if I have 5, 50, 500 or 5000 guns. I only have two hands.
The only instances where number of guns becomes an issue is if the guy is operating as an unlawful dealer or is actually holding the armory of a real active group under investigation in its own right.
Otherwise it's completely irrelevant how many of a thing some dude has.

New Mexico stands out. Until I know it's not a drug gang I'll bite my tongue.
Maybe Eric Holder is trying to get some of his Fast and Furious guns back before they get discovered, too? It would certainly explain the lack of arrests - can't have that going to court, where all kinds of information might come out into the open...

I would bet that this will end with charges dropped and guns not returned, which I am OK with. I want citizens to bear arms, even semi-auto rifles, but I don't want the nut job next door (and there really is no debating the probability that this guy is a nut job) owning more firearms than he does pieces of silverware.

I hate to disagree but this isn't true for most, if not all, schools. My wife and I have worked for schools for several years and the only time a school performs a "lock-down" is when an active shooter/intruder is either on campus or on campus at another school in town.
If schools went under lock-down every time the police where near, they'd be closed all day!

The owner of the house and This antique gun collector/dealer with a nearby PO box , share the same name...which would explain the "arsenal" of rifle, after rifle, after rifle being pulled out of the home.
My guess is that there was a misunderstanding and/or disagreement involving the classification between antique and illegal weapons and it was This page that may have earned him a visit from the Feds.
The Tax Fraud Investigations Division (TFID) has the authority to investigate any potential violation of state statute related to taxes. TFID works with federal, state and local law enforcement entities in case development
Further, many other firearms have been reclassified by BATF as NFA firearms long after they were sold to citizens and in general circulation! BATF appears far more interested in pursuing their own agenda - by prosecuting citizens and confiscating guns, than in helping citizens comply with the law
The BATF also classified many, many other NFA weapons (including machine guns) as "Curios and Relics" - historically significant, of higher monetary value - thus not likely to be used as a weapon, but these have not been removed from the NFRTR registration requirement.
