Kansas gun dealer sentenced for selling to felon


WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — A federally licensed firearms dealer from Parsons, Kan., was sentenced Wednesday to six months in prison followed by a year on probation for knowingly selling a firearm to a convicted felon, U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said.

Charles A. Black, 36, Parsons, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of selling a firearm to a convicted felon. In his plea, Black admitted the crime occurred while he owned Triple B Sporting Goods in Parsons.

Black arranged for a man who he had known since they were teenagers to buy a gun even though Black knew the man was a convicted felon. Black allowed the felon to use another man’s identity in order to pass a background check and purchase a Keltec 9 mm pistol.
