Notorious YouTube gun enthusiast Kyle Myers raided by nearly 40 federal agents

Notorious YouTube gun enthusiast Kyle Myers raided by nearly 40 federal agents | gunz | Scoop.it
Nearly 40 government agents raided the home of popular YouTube gun enthusiast Kyle Myers, 26, well known for shooting and blowing up inanimate objects on video.

 

 

The agents raided the Georgia home of Myers, 26, three months after the death of his business partner Keith Ratliff
The agents were hunting for explosives like the ones featured in Myers' YouTube videos
The Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms said Myers could be in violation of federal law for making money via YouTube for his use of explosivesThe ATF would not comment on whether the raid stemmed from the investigation into Ratliff's mysterious death

Nearly 40 government agents raided the home of popular online gun enthusiast Kyle Myers, 26, well known for shooting and blowing up inanimate objects on his YouTube channel FPS Russia.

The armed authorities with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and state and county law enforcement agencies showed up at Myers' home office in Carnesville, Georgia, as well as his father's home in Lavonia on Tuesday, three months after the unexplained death of Myers' business partner, Keith Ratliff.

The agents were hunting for explosives like the ones featured in Myers' YouTube videos, which they believe the Internet celebrity was using as a sales platform.

 

ATF spokesman Richard Coes told the Athens Banner-Herald that Myers could be in violation of federal law for making money via YouTube for his lively display of explosives at use.

Coes noted that if a person is going to sell, distribute or use explosives for business purposes, they need a federal explosives manufacturing license.

He told the Banner-Herald that no arrests were made during the raids that took place at Myers’ home and his father's 60-acre ranch.

 

No firearms were reportedly seized, but Coes said he was unsure if any explosives were taken from either property.

There is an ongoing investigation into the death of Myers’ business partner Ratliff, 32, who was found with a single bullet wound to the head at his business office in Carnesville, where he lived, on January 3.

His corpse was reportedly surrounded by several guns, but not the gun that killed him, according to news reports at the time of his death.

littlebytesnews's curator insight, March 30, 2013 1:38 AM

What gave them the rights to invade his privacy and violate his second amendment rights?? Did they even have a warrant?

 

They didn't seize any weapons or explosives so what was the point other than harrassment?? The death of his business partner is suspicious to say the least following the death of at least two other well known gun enthusisasts, including Chris Kyle, the American Navy SEAL Sniper who was murdered at a gun range by a disturbed veteran he was trying to mentor.

 

How is he making money off his Youtube videos?? As far as I know you can't make money by putting videos on Youtube? Youtube is a free service, you don't have to pay to view what the public posts...so I am not sure how they can claim he is making money off his educational and instructional videos. They claim he uses explosives that require a license, but it says he was business partners with Ratliff who had a license by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, authorities said.


The FPS videos, which star Myers often speaking in a fake Russian accent, became popular for their distinct blend of humor and heavy weaponry.

Scroll down for FPS Russia’s latest video, which was went live a few days ago and had more than 1.2 million views as of Friday:

I agree! When I read this, I was thinking this is not going to go over well
mconti38's comment, April 12, 2013 12:13 PM
It surprises me how many people think that simply banning "assault weapons" will prevent mass shootings. I think the answer lies in how weapons are acquired (ex. strict background checks and tight acquisition policies) while still upholding the second amendment. In the end, there really isn't anything preventing someone from getting their hands on a weapon with malicious intentions.
chjell54's comment, April 14, 2013 10:40 PM
Just because a law is passed doesn't mean that criminals are going to follow them. That is why we have criminals because they break the law. If the laws were followed then their wouldn't be any criminals in this nation but there is. Banning guns won't fix anything. If America did go through with gun control their would be a civil war all over again.
