INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - United States Attorney Josh J. Minkler announced Wednesday that approximately 390 firearms, silencers and receivers were seized from Federal Firearms Licensee G2 Sports Products/G2 Firearms Sales on Tuesday.

Minkler says the investigation revealed numerous regulatory and statutory violations of federal law.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says they found evidence that the company knowingly transferred handguns to an out-of-state resident, made false entries in records, failed to report multiple sales of handguns and knowingly transferred firearms to a prohibited person.

The company agreed to an enhanced surrender of its federal license. As a result, none of the owners will be eligible to reapply for their license or engage any further in the business of dealing in firearms.

The owners also agreed to the seizure of approximately 390 firearms, silencers and receivers including rifles, shotguns and handguns with a total estimated value of $224,000.

“This prosecution, firearms seizure, and license surrender represent our commitment to reducing violent crime in the Southern District of Indiana by keeping firearms out of the hands of individuals who have no legal right to possess firearms," Minkler said.
