That is not true. As an NFA owner, I speak from experience and knowledge. Also see:
They still have to have a warrant and reasonable articulate suspicion to justify requesting access to your home.
Not "anytime they please".
Even Title II/Class 3 dealers are given notice before having their premises inspected for compliance - (Correction, FFL/SOT/Class 3 Dealers CAN be subject to inspection without notice DURING regular business hours).
As a Form 4 NFA owner, you do NOT have to give up your 4th Amendment rights - at least not yet.
