On a recent news program, it was described that a man was wanted on a "federal weapons warrant"

What exactly does this mean?

A federal warrant either related to a firearms crime or a federal search warrant to look for firearms or items related to a firearms crime. It depends upon the context. It doesn't mean a shoot on sight order or anything if that's what you thought.

No idea of the context, but I would guess an arrest warrant for a federal weapons crime: NFA34 GCA68.
