ATF raids home of that Russian gun guy with the awesome YouTube vids

You know- that Russian guy who makes the awesome videos showing off his weaponry. Well, he was raided because he makes money from YouTube with those. Good Lord.

quote:

The Georgia residence of Kyle Myers, maker of the popular weapons and explosives YouTube series FPSRussia, was raided by 40 agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) on Tuesday, according to the Athens Banner-Herald.


quote:

But what was the justification for the raid? ATF spokesman Richard Coes told the Banner-Herald: "The claim is that [Myers] was using explosives and getting paid for it via YouTube."


BTW, his producer had been killed. But he is not a suspect.

single bullet to the head.

only gun missing out of all of their combined weapons is the same caliber as the murder weapon.

i dont think the raid was out of the question at all considering his inventory of ammunition and explosives.

pretty sure nothing was seized either.

ATF fricks probably shot his manager just to be able to have a reason to raids his home. And FPSRussia always followed the law with everything. This is just the start of our Gov't trying to confiscate weapons and they'll start with guys like this because they can spin it to justify it.

The law states you cannot manufacture explosives for business purposes without a license. He didn't "manufacture" explosives, he just video'd the use of already manufactured explosives and received money for the video.

Do you realize how the ATF works? Those bastards will set you up because they don't like citizens owning this type of weaponry. They see it as a greater cause and have no problem with "creating" evidence. Wouldn't surprise me a bit if they "took" the gun that is missing and shot the manager with it just to be able to arrest him and raid his property.

Everybody knows he's not really Russian. Kyle should change his name to FPSGermans.

BTW, did you quit Youtube Sweat? No new videos in forever.......

Yea. I made a thread about this on the OB yesterday. An ATF agent said they considred confiscating weapons he had just due to the sheer amount of the arsenal. Not because any of them were illegal.

quote:

No illegal explosives were found and no arrests were made, but considering the unprecedented arsenal stocked at one of the locations, the agents considered confiscating Myers’ weapons. “The idea at one of the locations was to take firearms, but they did not do that,” an ATF spokesperson said, according to Onlineathens.com.

Well,

It's not illegal for him to own them............and it's not illegal for them to "Consider" confiscating them either.

Unwrap your panties.
