The ATF is Keeping Us SafeMonday, March 1, 2010
The ATF seized a shipment of 30 Airsoft BB guns headed for a retail business because ….
Special Agent Kelvin Crenshaw said the toys can be easily retro-fitted into dangerous weapons.
“With minimal work it could be converted to a machine gun,” Crenshaw said.
And then there was the orange tip “problem.”
ATF said it also seized the toys because they are missing the blaze orange tips required on all imported toy guns.
The Martins said they’ve received shipments before from Taiwan that were missing the orange tips and were simply asked by customs agents to drive up to Tacoma and paint the tips orange themselves. They are wondering why it is an issue now.
