40+ Officers & ATF Agents Raid Home of Youtube Gun Personality FPSRussia

FPSRussia is one of the most well known Youtube channels on Youtube.

Georgia native Kyle Myers speaks with a Russian accent and demonstrates using some of rarest and most entertaining weapons on the planet.

Myers business partner was found murdered in his office back in January.

Police would not say if a 40+ officer raid on the actor’s home was in connection to that murder.

Authorities said the search was for illegal explosives.

Myers often blows up cars, refrigerators, and other objects in his Youtube videos.

According to onlineathens.com, Federal agents, accompanied by Georgia Bureau of Investigation agents and deputies with the sheriff’s offices in Franklin and Hart counties, raided the Royston residence of Myers. Authorities also raided on Tuesday the 60-acre farm of Lamar Myers, Kyle’s father, in Lavonia.

From 921wlhr.com:

According to Franklin County Sheriff Stevie Thomas, federal investigators descended on Carnesville and Hart County Wednesday with warrants.

“On March 25th we were notified by agents with the ATF in Atlanta that they would be executing two search warrants signed by a federal magistrates,” Thomas said. “One (warrant) in Franklin County and one Hart County. I notified the Hart County Sheriff and at 9a Wednesday morning, our officers met with the ATF agents at the Franklin County location.” … “They were conducting an investigation regarding the explosives the pair were using on their You Tube show,” Cleveland said. “They were blowing up cars and other things in Hart County on their farm. Agents were looking for explosives or anything connected to explosives that would have put them in violation of federal law.” … “The way I understand it they were using Tannerite. It’s legal up to a certain amount and agents were looking for any violations of federal guidelines,” Cleveland said.

No arrests were made and authorities did not say if any explosives were found.

The FPSRussia Youtube channel has over 3.4 million subscribers, is one of the largest channels on Youtube and is the largest gun related channel on Youtube. Myers has been in several Call of Duty video game commercials and promotions as well.

Here is a sample of one of FPSRussia’s typical videos.

Slow work day huh fellas. How about restarting Holder's Fast & Furious Ops for some excitement.

It’s about time that peace loving citizens and their precious little defenseless children were protected from fiends like this. Why, before you know it, this lunatic could be running amok at Miss Manners School for Politically Correct Little Darlings. Oh, the humanity.

We can all be thankful that in these troubling financial times, what’s left of our tax dollars are being so wisely used.

The way I understand it they were using Tannerite. It’s legal up to a certain amount and agents were looking for any violations of federal guidelines,

Directions for use: It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

Covers almost anything they want to bitch about.

I just tore the one off of my mattress.

Is Obama going to send his goon squad after me next?

Fishing.

It could easily be they justify a search for one thing in hopes of finding evidence for another, murder.

I have watched many of the videos... some are quite fun.

I love that guy's videos.

It will be doubly ironic if he has to move to Russia to continue his show.

Maybe yes, maybe no... but I just turned you in for a $100 reward. I also told them that you are White, armed with spooky looking black guns and that you hate Obama. Expect company first thing in the morning.

Hide your dog.

Pure intimidation, "sending a message" to his UTB subscribers.

When the ATF is used for political purposes the Randy Weaver/Waco events eventually ensue.

Gee. I wonder how many NSA key word filters I just triggered?

Here’s your problem:

“...deputies with the sheriff’s offices in Franklin and Hart counties, raided the Royston residence of Myers.”

The current sheriffs cannot be trusted. The sheriffs allowed their deputies to be used. The USSC has ruled that the federal government cannot compel sheriffs to assist the federal government. Citizens of these counties need to elect a constitutional sheriff. With a constitutional sheriff you can:

1. Buy surplus military equipment.

2. Investigate and arrest leftists in government, including the federal government.

3. Pass county ordinances to make the operation of federal goons in your county difficult if not impossible.

4. Raise an armed deputy auxiliary unit for “emergencies.”

Fishing expedition & harassment to send a message to gun owners. The sad fact is the federal govt. is dirty & in need of a house cleaning that would make one of Joe Stalin’s legendary purges look like a bunch of Sunday school kindergartners singing “Jesus loves me”.

How they got the warrant should be investigated. This was a search and find mission
it seems, not based on any fact of illegal activity.

It could have been as easy as showing a judge the very latest FPS Russsia’s video.

Look judge 3 explosions. He’s using dangerous explosives. Sign this warrant please.
