The Florida gun exchange has stopped accepting guns from China and Canada, citing security concerns.
The Florida exchange, Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, said in a statement that it had decided to cease accepting guns that have been imported from China, as well as Canada.
The exchange’s announcement came after an FBI agent, identified only as “FBI,” checked into the exchange’s offices and found three guns that had been brought into the U.S. from China.
The guns had no serial numbers or owners’ names.
The agent was not permitted to enter the building, but the exchange said it had told him to check into the building on Friday afternoon.
The FBI agent was later able to check in again, and the guns were all removed from the exchange on Saturday.
The bureau agent, who has been on the exchange since March, had been working on a criminal investigation of the exchange.
The exchange said he had been given “excellent access” to the exchange and had not been subjected to any “enhanced questioning.”
Bexar Sheriff Adrian Garcia said the FBI agent’s actions were “inappropriate.”
He added that he is “deeply concerned about the potential for further misuse of firearms.”
The exchange said that the bureau’s actions will not affect the security of its customers or staff.
“As soon as the FBI completes its criminal investigation, we will begin removing firearms from the Orlando gun exchange,” the exchange wrote.
