The guard then told us we could have brought our guns into Canada with a permit, "now do you have guns with you?" Afterwards , they proceeded to inspect both trucks and campers from Texas. We weren't the only ones getting inspections. I really do agree they must be justifying their positions. We haven't had that much trouble at other locations.

As I understand it, you could have brought long guns for hunting purposes ( with permits ), but not handguns or AK47s ( permits or not ).
And, given the number of seizures for weapons, I don't think they are just trying secure jobs, although that certainly is an issue recently.

With Texas plates you probably got some extra attention. Sort of like any guy named Barak Hussein heading south right after 9/11.
