He said he would shoot someone who came to take his weapon. In what way could he mistake their intentions? It is the invaders with badges and and a bad law on their side who are the agressors here, not our citizen, for whom you have not the slightest bit of evidence of any agressiveness at all (take me for example: I've said such things many times and will again, but I've never raised a hand in anger in my life, much less a weapon). If such a badged invader were to break down the man's door, announce himself and head for the guns, he'd be getting exactly what such a barbarian deserves, "orders" notwithstanding.
Attacking my means of protecting my life is no different from attacking my life, and should be met with the same resistance.
