There is more to the Bill of rights than the 2nd Amendment. When the government tramples on any of them, I get worried. A warrant-less raid on "suspected protesters" in Minneapolis ahead of the RNC should raise some eyebrows.

"The officers refused to state why they were there and, until the very end, refused to show whether they had a search warrant. They were forced to remain on the floor for 45 minutes while the officers took away the laptops, computers, individual journals, and political materials kept in the house. "

To put this in perspective, just replace "laptops, computers, individual journals, and political materials" with "pistols, rifles and ammunition."

The DNC had some similar incidents, not raids per se, but what could be considered "politically motivated" arrest.
