Gun laws vary depending on where you live. Getting a gun legally is not as easy as it used to be, so there is profit to be made if you can illegally get weapons into certain countries. The trick is to find a good way to smuggle those guns past the border checks.
34-year-old Adam Joseph Bunger of Bowling Green, Kentucky had the not so smart idea to sell guns to international customers for a profit. He dismantled the guns and magazines and hid them inside empty Xbox 360 casings. He did this several times, shipping out the consoles to customers in Australia, England, and Sweden. So surprisingly, it was working pretty well, but soon enough, authorities in each of the countries he shipped to, realized what was going on. Those Xbox 360s must have been suspiciously heavy. The parts probably rattled around too.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives discovered that Bunger had been selling the guns illegally through a Germany-based business called Black Market Reloaded, and arrested him. He could serve up to 25 years in jail. I hope that whatever profit he made was worth it.
