Bull. Sorry man but that's a load of crap.

That guy had no business calling anyone because he saw what he "thought" was a firearm.

Even if it was a real firearm, it's none of his business. There is nothing stopping a legal owner from having a loaded firearm in residence.

Again, I gotta call bullshit man.

I clean all my firearms on my FRONT DECK in the summer time. Sometime after having guests to the range there are 3 or 4 of us out there cleaning away.

I'm on my property, abiding by the law. My neighbors are aware of what I do, because I let them know in person with a chat.

But to say I can't clean my guns on my front deck because someone might drive or jog by and see "and evil firearm" and call the COPS?

Let them call. I look forward to having a conversation with the local COPS about what I can do on my own property.
