Shothe resident?
How can officers knowho is the criminal and who is the resident?

If no criminal in the house, I would place my firearm on the floor in bright light and emerge withands raised and tell officers where I placed the firearm.
I’d expecto be placed ihandcuffs for my protection and officers’ protection.

Do exactly as officers command.
