ATF Agent Seizes 30 Toy Guns!

CORNELIUS, Ore. - A local business owner is flabbergasted after a shipment of 30 toy guns for his store was confiscated by ATF agents in Tacoma. Brad Martin and his son, Ben, sell the Airsoft BB guns from their store in Cornelius where they've been in business for seven years. The Martins said they buy their stock from Taiwan because the merchandise is less expensive. But the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives seized a shipment of 30 in October. That shipment is worth around $12,000 and the ATF is promising to destroy the entire shipment. Special Agent Kelvin Crenshaw said the toys can be easily retro-fitted into dangerous weapons. Ben Martin disagrees that the toy guns could ever be considered dangerous. "To say these are readily convertible to machine guns is absolutely preposterous," he said. "The round wouldn't go into the firing chamber and even if the firing pin did strike the primer the gun would basically blow up in your face."

    ATF obviously has nothing better to do. just love the refusal to be cooperative with the owners. if it was the other way around they would have thrown them in jail w/o a thought.

    This guy need a mental exam! They can't be converted. He needs to be fired or sued. The store owner should sue.
