The day after Kemper purchased the revolver, police officers knocked on his door to confiscate it. Kemper was compliant and surrendered the weapon without incident. The officers joked with the man and assured him that this procedure was purely protocol, and it was. The officers visiting his house had no idea that the huge man on the other side of the door was the serial killer they were desperately trying to find. This incident shook Kemper’s new-found confidence. Although the officers had assured him that everything was fine, Kemper couldn’t shake the paranoia that told him that the cops were surely on to him.
