ATF AGENTS RAID PAINTBALL COMPOUND - STALEMATE
Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms agents raided the house of Mr. and Mrs.
William and Dawn Mills of Fresno California today in a paint filled
raid that has ended in a stalemate.
The Fresno man was suspected of possession of knowledge and devices
which, if used illegally, would be illegal. "We had reason to believe
he knew how to make a firearms silencer using a toilet paper roll,"
said ATF agent Frank Samson, who claimed that todays grocery stores
are a "haven for psychos in the toilet paper/paper towel section."
The ATF agents raided the one story house shortly after noon today,
originally posing as Girl Scouts to gain entry. "I didn't think they
looked like Girl Scouts," said Dawn Mills in a telephone interview this
evening, "I was a Girl Scout. A lot of Girl Scouts were friends of
mine. Let me tell you, they were no Girl Scouts."
The ATF agents did not use real firearms in the raid today, instead
they used paintball marker guns. The paintball guns shoot non-lethal
paint pellets instead of real bullets. The paint pellets break upon
impact with objects or people, leaving a mark. The shooter then calls
the opponent "out." The use of non-lethal paintball markers was
adopted by ATF after the Waco incident. "We don't want to hurt
anybody. We just want to break down their door and scare the TINKLE out
of them," said Samson, who stated, "we get off on the power and
But the Mills family had different ideas. "I was toying with the idea
of building an automation system onto my Nightmare when they came
through the door. The first guy shot at me but only got a bounce off
my arm. He yelled for a paintcheck, but I yelled 'no break buddy' and
lit him up," said William Mills. The paintfight continued in the Mills
"Boy can that guy work that pump," said Samson, "somebody should do
something about those autotriggers, we're getting outgunned out there
with our VM68s." Currently it is legal to own an autotrigger on a pump
paintgun in California. Agent Samson pointed out that, while the pump
gun William Mills was using is not technically a paintball "Assualt
Marker," it can fire nearly as fast. "We're lucky that we got a squad
into the Mills garage and got to their cache of semi-auto paintball
guns before they did," he said. When asked what might have happened if
Mr. Mills or his wife got to the Stingray assault-type semi-autos
first, Samson replied that he and his men would have been "toast."
Shortly after the shooting started one ATF agent was eliminated when
trying to gain entry into the Mills bathroom. "I was on the toilet
when I heard paintball guns going off in the living room," said Dawn
Mills. "I was about to yell at Bill to knock it off when a big fat AFT
agent tried to crash through that little bathroom window that is up
high in the shower." Dawn Mills said she quickly eliminated him with
the PGP pistol her husband had left in the bathroom earlier that day.
"He's constantly tinkering," she said. The AFT agent plugged the
window nicely, Mills said, and they have been passing the time together
in the bathroom discussing their respective pet dogs.
After several minutes of shooting in the living room, the AFT agents
began to run out of CO2 in their VM68 Assault Markers. "We had to
pull back outside the front door before that guy realized we were
running out of air and jumped up and painted the rest of us," said
Samson. The VM68 makes a very distinctive sound when it runs out of
CO2, he explained. The AFT agents have currently set up a command
center outside of the Mills home and are waiting for instructions
"I had my eyes closed the whole time," William Mills said, "because I
didn't have my goggles on. That's what TINKLEes me off more than
anything--that they would shoot in here without everybody wearing eye
protection." The IPPA, a paintball player's association, is looking
into the safety of the raid.
