Randy Weaver had been a survivalist who was investigated by the U.S. government after reports were made that he had ties to white supremacists and anti-government groups. The government went on to accuse Randy Weaver of having sold two illegal sawed-off shotguns to an undercover Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives informant, according to NPR.
