ATLANTA—Four people have been sentenced in federal court in Atlanta for their roles in a gun trafficking ring that operated in Georgia and California.
U.S. Attorney Sally Yates on Friday announced the sentencing of 26-year-old Jeffrey Martin Colon Moore, his girlfriend 26-year-old Crystal Davis, her father 56-year-old Danny Bill Davis, all of Canton, Ga., and 36-year-old Alexander Quinn of Oakland, Calif.
Prosecutors say Moore recruited the Davises to buy at least 65 guns at dealers and gun shows in the Atlanta area. He then shipped the guns to Quinn.
Yates says several guns sold in this case were recovered in the San Francisco area in the possession of convicted criminals.
Moore and Quinn were both sentenced to jail to be followed by probation, while the Davises were sentenced to home confinement followed by probation.
I guess that explains why the strict gun laws in California don't seem to work very well. It also clearly points to the solution.
