This guy didn't call the police. He (unintentionally) called a suicide prevention hotline. We are forced to assume that a worker at the hotline called the cops.
The moral of this story is to always refuse to answer any questions about your firearms, no matter who is asking. I wouldn't tell an anonymous voice on the other end of the phone what my bank account numbers are...why would I tell them if I have a gun?
every single time I go to the V.A. Hospital for any kind of appointment, I am asked in the pre-screening if I am having any emotional problems or feelings of depression. My response is always this: I am a Christian. What would I have to be distressed about? Shuts them up every time!
yeah I remember when our pediatrician asked about guns in our home and I did not like it
