Albuquerque gun collector suing after federal agents raided his home

Gun Raid Lawsuit

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – An Albuquerque gun collector is suing the Department of Homeland Security after the feds raided his home.

Three years ago agents raided Robert Adams’ northeast Albuquerque home saying he was suspected of smuggling guns into the U.S. They said it was part of a scheme to get around tax laws. However, the feds later acknowledged Adams was a licensed gun supplier.

According to the lawsuit, during the raid his home and personal belongings along with some his guns were damaged. It says he is also still missing one valuable firearm.

“They damaged them. They broke them…scraped them. They took them apart,” said Adams’ attorney.

The lawsuit also claims his business of buying and selling guns suffered. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
