A southwest suburban gun dealer is facing federal
charges after illegally selling several firearms, including to an
undercover agent posing as a felon, according to federal prosecutors.
Patrick Sean Keiran, 40, is charged with four counts of selling
firearms without recording the name, age and residence of the purchaser;
selling firearms to an individual he had reason to believe was a
convicted felon; and selling firearms to an individual who did not
display a valid FOID card, according to a statement from the U.S.
According to prosecutors, in less than one month, Keiran illegally
sold 11 firearms — eight 9mm handguns, two .22 caliber rifles, and a .38
caliber rifle. Keiran sold the weapons to an undercover agent posing as
a felon, and to a felon cooperating with authorities.
