That was not the question. Nobody has been up for penalties for violating someone's civil rights by legally conducting a background check on a gun buyer, but you still think that's what's happening.

The question is whether you give more deference to the civil liberties of the people you interview or investigate than is required by law -- so as not to be the one compromising anyone else's civil rights, even if it is legally allowable. (Just like how background checks etc. are legally allowable, but you seem to view as compromising to civil rights.)
