I went back and listened a second time, and you are 100% correct. Whether the RV'ers said anything about MWAG we don't know for sure, but the story didn't say, so we assume there was no MWAG called in. Still, the initial contact could have been handled better. If someone answers a question I didn't ask, or gives me an evasive answer, then I ask the question again to make sure they understand exactly what I'm asking. Doesn't matter whether it's my wife, my business partner, or my employee. That's basic communication skills, which would have gone a long way in this instance.

Q. Do you have any weapons on you?
A. I don't consent to any searches.
Q. I'm not asking to search you, I'm asking if you have any weapons on you.
A handgun is only good for fighting your way to a rifle.
