"How dare you embarrass the government clowns in charge?"

Three days after he posted his critical video clips on YouTube, four federal air marshals and two sheriff's deputies arrived at the pilot's house to confiscate his federally-issued firearm. At the same time as the federal marshals took the pilot's gun, a deputy sheriff asked him to surrender his state-issued permit to carry a concealed weapon. The pilot's attorney, not unreasonably, said he believed the federal government sent the posse to the pilot's house in order to send a message.
Question: does a local LE even have the legal power to ask for his carry permit? Or was he demanding it with no authority? If the latter, he and his sheriff need a severe kick in the ass for taking part in this and abusing their authority to do so.

As to the air marshals, "We were just following our orders", etc. Bastards. My words for the clowns who gave the orders I will not go into.

If they feel the need to kick back that hard, they're feeling very, very insecure.

That means the campaign to get those 'holes fixed is getting somewhere.
