Eight Men Sentenced to Prison for Lying on ATF Forms
Eight people will be serving time in federal prison after they were convicted for lying in order to buy firearms bound to Mexico.
The United States Attorney says the men pled guilty on various dates in March and April of this year to lying on the ATF form 4473. They falsely represented themselves to be the actual owner of varying types of automatic weapons they were buying for another earlier this year. Officials say the men bought the rifles at federally license firearms dealers in McAllen, Mission and Pharr.
