Gun-Law Enforcers Target Georgia Violators

Print More

About 850 federally licensed firearms dealers in North Georgia have been put on notice that dire consequences await them if they are caught illegally selling weapons, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution says.

In letters mailed this week to hundreds of gun stores, pawn shops and individual gun dealers, U.S. Attorney Bill Duffey let the licensees know that “rigorous enforcement of federal law prohibiting illegal gun sales will, of course, deter or prevent illegal sales.”

The letters were sent out shortly before a federal grand jury indicted a pawn shop dealer in Rome, Ga., on 12 counts, including not conducting a criminal background check on a firearm purchaser.
