What Was This Guy Thinking?

Huckleberries Online already mentioned this, but I couldn't let it pass without posting it myself. From today's Idaho Statesman:
Leonard Hugh Fuller asked agents at the Eastport border crossing July 9 if he could store his gun there while he went on vacation in Canada, according to court records.
He showed the officers a badge and credentials and they agreed to hold his 9mm Beretta until he returned, the records showed.
Border agents then checked with the U.S. State Department, which had never heard of the "United States Special Response Department Anti-Terrorism Unit" — the agency Fuller reportedly said was his employer. Fuller was arrested when he returned July 12 and asked for his weapon back.
Fuller, 55, was booked for investigation of producing fraudulent identity documents, a federal felony punishable by a maximum 15 years and $250,000 in fines.
Dude, seriously, you're supposed to use your fake identity as a super-secret government agent to pick up girls, not to get free gun storage. I mean... "Special Response Department Anti-Terrorism Unit"? Government agency names are stupid, but not that stupid. If you're going to make up a spy agency name, at least give it a good acronym.
