    Default 😲COUPLE FINDS FULLY-AUTOMATIC M16S IN STORAGE CASES BOUGHT ONLINE

    😕 some people have all the luck

    HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Federal authorities are trying to figure out how at least a dozen fully-automatic M16s ended up among military surplus equipment sold to a Houston couple.

    The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) executed a search warrant in a Richmond-area storage facility on Monday afternoon. However, that only came after the couple voluntarily notified authorities of their highly-unusual find.

    The buyers of those storage cases failed to follow the three-step process:

    1) Disassemble rifles to stripped receivers
    2) Cut up stripped receivers and discard
    3) Sell remaining parts kits

    The ATF got a search warrant for a property the owners voluntarily notified them about.

    Wow.

    The ATF needs to be dismantled just like the FBI.

    You're god damned right!!

    You might hear about my big boating accident though. In fact, I might buy a boat and have such an accident, just to have some documentation in case the ATF ever came knocking on my door.

    And remember, the boating accident happened BEFORE you had a chance to open the cases and look inside. Boy would you have been surprised and certainly would have notified the authorities immediately. Damn leaky boat.

    Wonder what fully automatic M16s would have brought at the Wilkinsburg gun buy back??
