A northwest Iowa man faces up to 10 years in prison for selling guns without a license.
Federal prosecutors say in a news release that 62-year-old Tony Hulstein, of Sheldon, was found guilty last week in federal court in Sioux City. Hulstein was convicted of selling firearms without a license and of four counts of traveling in interstate commerce to sell firearms.
Prosecutors say that in less than five years, Hulstein obtained and disposed of more than 800 guns. He had nearly 100 firearms when he was arrested.
Hulstein faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Note that there are no charges with selling to prohibited persons.
So much for the “Gun Show Loophole”. Doesn’t seem like much of a “Loophole” if you go to prison for doing it…
