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

Thomas Mahn, the Port Director at Louisville said that the Chinese smugglers were knowingly trying to avoid detection and smuggle in Assault Weapons parts into US.
“The importing of any type of munitions is regulated by the ATF,” said Thomas Mahn, Port Director, Louisville.
“This smuggler was knowingly trying to avoid detection, however, our officers remain vigilant, ensuring our community is safe.”
The CBP Center of Excellence and Expertise, Machinery team estimate the domestic value of the shipment to be $129,600.
Earlier, in February, Indian intelligence caught China secretly shipping nuclear arms to Pakistan. The ship belonged to a Chinese shipping company COSCO blacklisted by the Americans last year. Sources in Coastal intelligence told GreatGameIndia the intercept was based on a tip-off from the Americans who were monitoring the entire fleet of the shipping line believed to be a front of Chinese intelligence.
The weapons shipment from Chinese smugglers has been caught at a time when the United States of America has been caught in the grip of a civil-war. The issue is complicated by the fact that the group leading the civil-unrest movement, the Black Lives Matter has direct ties to known terrorists.
Numerous Black Lives Matter organizers have ties to extremist movements of the past, and are not some brand new movement simply fighting for marginalized people today. Black Lives Matter has declared war on the police and has released a blueprint for Black Panther style armed ‘patrols’ monitoring police officers on the streets. BLM’s leader revealed in an exclusive interview that they are mobilizing a highly-trained military arm.
Those weapon parts weren’t meant for Americans, so you’d better arm up America, it’s time to lock and load. They’re already hamstringing the police so who’s going to protect you when the Socialist come for you and your families.
Since when are just parts illegal as we sell them here in the USA all the time?
When they are smuggled in!
Patrick’s not too bright. When parts are smuggled in they are illegal . He doesn’t know the difference between legal and illegal .
Try living in a border state and these Dems think it is fine to bring illegals… living breathing .. into this country. Many crossing into this country carry the Chinese virus plus doz. of other dieseases.
Remember when Obama was president saying something about wanting a private army just as strong and just as powerful as the US military.
“Illegality” confuses the criminal and incoherent minds…
the SCOTUS doesn’t know what illegal is either. They have ruled to be pro-racist, pro-murder, pro-theft and lately, they admit that there are more than two genders/sex in the world. They gave no evidence or proof. IDIOTS
Are you shitting me? Don’t know the difference between lawful and unlawful (smuggling them)?
just exactly what were the pins used for in an “assault weapon”? If they were just assembly pins for AR’s then I’m sure they were banned by government but I resent AR’s being referred to as “ASSAULT WEAPONS.
NIXON SCREWED UP IN 1972 WHEN HE BROUGHT CHINA INTO THE WORLD FAMILY! A CROCK OF SH-T CAN NEVER CHANGE IT’S COLOR, BROWN! COMMIE CHINA IS THIS CROCK!
who was this consigned too? they need to be exposed. Congress is pushing us towards Russia, again, and the real
enemy is China, I don’t care if it was for AR 15s or not, the real question is why and who. Nothing on the news about this.
Yes, and notice the seizure date: May 22. There is more to this story than is being told here.
When China and the WHO were busted for COVID-19 the DEMOCRATS rushed to their defense. Now the DEMOCRATS & Barack Obama – or whoever the hell he really is – are not only condoning these rioters they are encouraging supporting and funding these criminals now we see China rushing to help them. If you love your home – life and country there is no way you can support the communist DEMOCRATS. I guess all those whiny celebrities don’t like their privileged lives. Too bad for them the will be crying the loudest when they are reduced to no more no less than everyone else. They will go from the penthouse to the outhouse by their standards and they will have no one to blame but themselves.
Right on Mike! Obama’s English name, I believe is Barry Soetoro, is what’s been documented. He allowed China, a big foothold in America. Bill Clinton, pardoned a terrorist, Susan Rosenberg, who had been caught before, driving a truckload of weapons and explosives. She was involved with communist, terror groups that bombed New York, and Washington DC. She has been honored with managing the finances of the terrorist Marxist group, BLM, which has recently pulled in several million. The media really played them up, even giving time to Patrissed Cullor, co-founder of the Marxist, trained group. She has filed the tax reports for this group for the last couple of years, which appears to give more money to executive positions, then to BLM. But this report, might explain, where some of the money is going. So really, our vulnerable, news media, CNN, and MSNBC can be credited with promoting terrorism along with hollywood. They can’t get any more corrupt then that. They must not like the good life of free America. What’s worse, Fox news is getting corrupt.
Mike, his name is barry soetoro, who was never a citizen of the United States while going to school in Hawaii. How this POS got to the highest office in America tells you how corrupt America is and to date, I’m not sure and find it hard to believe this sorry sack of chit has not been truly vetted. Many people need to be tried for treason for letting this happen. oboma, will be known to the world as the biggest fraud ever brought upon any nation in the history of mankind
Until we know who these parts were going to we can’t rush to any conclusions. Were they going to a subversive group or just to someone who was going to sell the parts on the internet for anyone to buy. I am suspicious of the lack of that information in this article
its probably because its under investigation and the authorities aren’t going too release the info too the media or the public . Have you ever heard the saying ( lose lips sink ships ) . The media is always going too turn info around for their benefit
This from China! They are a communist dictatorship run country! What the hell more do you need to know? China sent the Covid-19 to the states to hurt us. They are expanding into the East and South China Seas. They are threatening Taiwan . They have bases at both ends of the Panama Canal. They are destroying rivers with dams that flow threw other countries. They have f::ked over Tibet, its people, and their land. They threatened us with withholding antibiotics! What the f::k do you mean until we find out where the parts are going we can’t jump to conclusions? What do you need a missile up your ass to see this is an attack on America! These could be going to radical Muslims, communists in BLM, Antifa the fascists assholes or other anti-American groups! Wake the f::k up! They were smuggled in stupid! Nuff said!
I don’t know about any one else, but I read where Obama had training facilities and an army! You read stuff, and you kinda shrug it off as bs but now?
Wake up America. Darkness is at the door and it’s not going to knock. When are you going to protect your freedom. Pelosi and Shummer will be eating ice cream as your house burns!!!!!
“Come on man, China’s not our problem”,Joe Biden quote. However, China, the DNC, Obama, Biden, AOC, Omar, Tilab, Pelosi, Schumer, Clyburn, Schiff, Nadler, oh crap, all of the democrat party members of Congress and democrat party state governors are existential threats to each and every American. We can stop them now, BLM, ANTIFA and the corrupt politicos or stop them after they start the actual civil war, because it is coming.
It could have been a gun store, a gunsmith, a guy living in his mother’s basement, like Joe Biden! It could have been uppers, or lowers, or chargers, for AK’s! You can buy anything on the internet, and trust me, China doesn’t care, they will sell you anything just as Russia will. I saw a documentary where Americans were buying motorcycles, helicopters, even a Russian Submarine for Columbia drug lords!
Ed is right though, Americans are too passive, and that is what Obama, Holder, and Soros, is counting on! I believe that if President Trump loses the election, this Country will quickly spiral out of control. Then it’s too late, the first thing the DNC will do, is gun confiscation! They will have everyone at home for COVID-19 as a way to disarm us!
We will have to make a choice, Hans them over, or face the fact that you are going out fighting! If we don’t make some sort of a plan, if we don’t congregate and plan, we have no chance! Unity, and numbers, or we go 1- against an army!
WE MUST MEET! WE MUST PLAN! WE MUST BUY WEAPONS! WE MUST BUY BODY ARMOR! AMMUNITION! WE MUST HAVE MAPS! WE MUST HAVE A MEETING! I AM WILLING TO MEET WITH LIKE MINDED ADULTS! WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME!
Is anyone willing to make a plan go meet?
If it were legit, it would be labeled & shipped with a correct description. Many of us receive legal parts, ammunition etc. from legit sources who label the packages. There is nothing illegal, nothing to hide from either side of the transaction. ATF is fine with that. These parts could not have been for a legitimate purpose. As said above, it’s illegal just like illegal immigration vs. legal immigration.
but like anything chicoms produce you can bet it is of very poor quality.
Just look at that, You STUPID Democrats and some Republicans preach about Gun Control. This is Proof that no matter what is Law, the Criminal will still be able to get any type of Gun or Parts needed China is Guilty of Treason against the USA, yet the Democrats still are on their Payroll. Cut all imports from China, get our Companies back onto this land.
COVID-19 is the only thing China ever produced that lasted this long
Such a pity, the democrats are acting like they want to do America in. If Biden gets in we will not recognize America as we once knew it. All that Pres. Trump has done great for America will be gone to hell in a hand basket. Yes China is a problem, but wait @ see, Russia is the real trouble. Donald Trump is the best President this America has ever seen. He will be our Pres. in 2020 it already has been prophesied so. We will be so GREAT for all the world to see again.
Vote Trump…Save the nation!
China is not in the habit of exporting anything good to the USA.
And the name of the organization should be called the PATRIOTS. I have been waiting for someone to start an organization that is all about bringing back our Constitution and living by it. Im starting to feel embarrassed to call myself an American. We have to stand up and stomp out this socialism, leftists group before its to late
David, I agree with you on all accounts. Been listening and trying under the radar to find such a group myself. We diffenately need to band together NOW.
