BATF's Agent Dunderhead

In the State of Washington...

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 reason?

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.

The AirSoft in question is a handgun, resembling a 9mm semiauto.

With a similar amount of work I can turn my Ford Taurus into a Bradley M1A1.
