    Homeowner is screwed.
    He will have all his stuff taken, with no trial, no arrest and this will just get swept up under a rug.
    I want to know how the found out he had all the ammo, guns and such.

    This may be a case of loose lips sink ships, and a friend of a friend of a friend blabbed to the "wrong" individual.

    I guess the obvious question is, was a crime committed? Im not sure how a few cases of ammo and a few guns are illegal.

    Still trying to find something on this but for some reason the news is not posting it but what they did show was then pulling out ammo can after ammo can of rounds out and big stuff too like 50 cal ammo in tubs. I can only assume that is why the web site is not posting anything yet either because there was only one news station there when the raid was made. They did make a comment that they thought they were running an illegal gun store out of the house

    Well, we don't really know if this is "Bad" or not until more information came out. At this point it is too early to claim it is falling either way. Maybe it was a safe house for a drug cartel, or maybe it is someone who is innocent whose rights are being trampled. But, going of the article, we don't know.

    You really think when you buy on line they are not reporting the purchase. Come on. Heck here in Wisconsin you have COP requiring in door ranges to provide him a list fo every person that use the ranges. They know who's buy the ammo. And where it is shipped.

    There are not enough details to make a decision. At face value, this looks like an overstepping of federal authority.

    I don't like the fact that property was taken but no arrests were made... maybe this is SOP, but it doesn't sound right to me.

    I as well don't happen to be a fan of property being taken without arrests being made. To me, that screams guilty until proven innocent and/or "we're going to take your stuff, just in case you're guilty of a crime".

    This is something I'll definitely be following to see what comes of it but I have this funny feeling we won't be seeing much more on it.

    This is what bothers me as well. At face value, it appears they may have had suspicion but not enough evidence to make an arrest. So they raided the house hoping to find the evidence needed. And with a sealed warrant, doesn't that also mean they do not have to let the property owner read the warrant before entry? That's not the way our legal system is supposed to work.

    Warning: the website you link is a Leftest Blog site. Owned by the same guy who does whosplayin.com and this lefty socialist is trying to be a "news outlet" with this lewisvilletexan.com site. He is not a legit news site. Though I have heard something about this story, it had something to do with ATF which happened in Lewisville, you might want to get your information from a real source. Or at least a source that is not so much a lefty site. This guy does nothing but promote rumor and his own made up hearsay with twisted facts. Basically a George Soros anti-gun kind of guy.
