Did you know it is a federal felony for and individual to sell, or give a firearm or ammunition to a convicted felon and the penalty is 10 years in prison for each count for each gun.
It is a federal felony for any individual to sell or give a firearm or ammunition to a person unlawfully using or addicted to a controlled substance. The penalty is again 10 years for each count.
