Default BATFE Seizes Airsoft Rifles now!

Holly crap! The ATF is now seizing airsoft riffles because the "could be converted' (if you don't mind changing the barrel, upper, and having the pot metal lower tear itself to pieces) to fire real bullets.

Fed agencies seize toys, call them 'machine guns'

Not sure...I'd have to go back and see where we left off with the discussion. I seem to recall that the ATF decided not to go after Airsoft toys, but I could (and probably am) remembering incorrectly.

Think they stopped seizing toys, and started sending REAL guns to thugs in Mexico.

Kind of off topic...At least in Montana you won't find any of those police gun buy things. We passed a law that any gun in the cops possession must be sold to a gun dealer, not destroyed.
