    China Caught Smuggling 10,800 Assault Weapons Parts Into Louisville By US Customs

    China has been caught smuggling 10,800 Assault Weapons parts into Louisville by US Customs and Border Protection officers. The shipment arriving from Shenzhen, China, and destined for a residence in Melbourne, Florida was seized on May 22. The parcel was manifested as containing 100 Steel Pin Samples – a common practice used by smugglers for contraband trafficking.

    At the Express Consignment Operations hubs in Louisville U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers seized a shipment from China that contained over 10,000 Assault Weapons parts being smuggled into the country. As per the CBP press release:

    The shipment was seized on May 22. Officers inspected the item, which was arriving from Shenzhen, China, destined for a residence in Melbourne, Florida. The parcel was manifested as containing 100 Steel Pin Samples. This is a common practice of smugglers manifesting the contraband as a harmless or a legitimate commodity in hopes of eluding further examination.

    I'd like to see a list of these so-called assault weapon parts.
    AK parts kits are imported all the time, the only requirement being that they don't have a barrel or a receiver. It's even legal to buy the full auto trigger parts as the receiver is the weapon in the eyes of the ATF.
    This article smells like sensationalist claptrap.

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    This was some guy in Florida importing AK parts trying to avoid duty. Not some Chinese government plot.

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers assigned to the Area Port of Seattle seized a shipment of rifle parts July 8 that were imported contrary to law.

    The shipment consisted of two pallets of Chinese-manufactured goods manifested as “Rifle Parts.” The shipment was flagged for lacking permits required by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. The ATF regulates and restricts firearms and ammunition. Firearm parts cannot be imported into the United States from certain countries and require ATF permits to be allowed entry.

    Upon review of the documentation and examination of the shipment, CBP, in consultation with ATF, determined the shipment was prohibited as embargoed goods under the Arms Export Control Act due to their Chinese origin. Over 56,000 parts were seized for a total domestic value of more than $151,000.

    The seized parts were designed for rifles and included hammers, release levers, disconnectors, housings, and assembly pins.
