Kyle “FPS Russia” Myers is the Internet’s most famous fake Russian gun nut, and while he’s know for outrageous stunts involving guns and explosions, he’s never done anything on his YouTube channel that remotely looks illegal.
That didn’t keep the most over-rated law-enforcement agencies in the land from raiding him anyway, and coming up empty-handed:
Federal agents and sheriff’s officers raided the Georgia residence of the Myers family in Royston, as well as the 60-acre farm owned by Kyle’s father Lamar Myers in Lavonia, where FPSRussia’s famous shooting range and testing area are set up.
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.
Did you catch that? Even though there was nothing remotely illegal going on, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Very Large Fires considered confiscating firearms anyway. Apparently only a senior agent had the brains to suggest they can’t steal property.
Or maybe the local Sheriff had to clue them in.
