It is interesting this illegal shipment was sent to a business located in Kentucky, thus providing another bit of anti-gun propaganda for the anti-gun Obama administration. ~ Editor

U.S. Customs agents say they've stopped a massive shipment of weapons from entering the United States through the Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport.

Customs and Border Patrol agents made the seizure yesterday. The shipment, manifested as "Toys" was valued at $14,000 and shipped in 25 boxes from Istanbul, Turkey.

Agents decided to search the boxes after it was determined the weapons had arrived without the proper permits.

They found 60 pump action 12-gauge shotguns and 177 pistols. The shotguns were encased in Styrofoam molding and individually packaged in 12 large boxes. The pistols were shipped within hard plastic gun storage cases packed inside 13 large cardboard boxes.


Customs and Border Protection now say a paperwork error may be partly to blame for guns it confiscated at the international airport.

The weapons were seized on Monday. Officers say the shipment was listed as "toys" from Turkey.

It contained sixty 12-gauge shotguns and 177 pistols.

Federal agents say they tested a shotgun and it fired live ammo.

The pistols are designed for theatrical use.
No charges have been filed, because the investigation is on-going.
