ATF Raids YouTube Sensation’s Home

By 

 

Popular YouTube personality and firearm enthusiast Kyle Myers–perhaps better known in-character as Dmitri Potapoff on his FPSRussia channel–got an unpleasant visit by federal agents late last week. Nearly 40 law enforcement officers consisting of local deputies, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, and agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alochol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) flooded Myers’ home and office along his father’s home in Georgia.

According to the Athens Banner-Herald, the officers were looking for explosives that they believe were being used in violation of federal law. The use and manufacturing of explosives for sale or business requires a federal license, says ATF spokesman Richard Coes.

Myers uses a variety of explosives in his episodic YouTube channel, which often showcases a firearm demonstration and Myers’ unique tongue-in-cheek humor. As of March 2013, the channel had garnered over 500 million video views and is reportedly the tenth-highest ranked on YouTube based on number of subscribers. The ATF believes that the use of the explosives for commercial purposes constitutes a violation and information obtained during the search will be handed over to the U.S. Attorney’s office.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
