    GAINESVILLE - A Commerce man pleaded not guilty Tuesday to eight counts of violating federal gun statutes for allegedly selling firearms to convicted felons and fraudulently purchasing other guns.

    Agents with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms began to investigate Gary in October after a confidential informant told them that people had been buying moonshine through Gary's septic tank pumping business in Commerce. :mamoru:

    The investigation into moonshine sales widened in December when authorities say that Gary sold a .32-caliber pistol to a convicted felon, according to the indictment.


    In the indictment, authorities accuse Gary of seven other illegal gun transactions, including the sale of five firearms - four pistols and one shotgun - to convicted felons.

    The other gun charges involve two purchases, on Jan. 11 and Feb. 6, when Gary allegedly filled out paperwork to buy guns at Shuler's Great Outdoors in Commerce and then immediately turned the guns over to a convicted felon, according to the indictment.



    Gary faces up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 for each count of selling a gun to a convicted felon, and up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each count of filling out the fraudulent gun registrations.
