NSSF 4473 Changes

HAMMOND – -(Ammoland.com)- Darryl Ivery, Jr., 24, of Hammond, Indiana, was sentenced by United States District Court Chief Judge Jon E. DeGuilio after pleading guilty to making false statements in connection with the acquisition of firearms, announced the United States, Attorney Clifford D. Johnson.

Ivery was sentenced to 18 months in prison followed by 1 year of supervised release.

According to documents in the case, between February and August 2020, Ivery purchased a total of 26 firearms on 17 different occasions from federally licensed firearms dealers in Lake County, Indiana. In each of the transactions, Ivery falsely certified on federal forms that he was the actual buyer. In reality, Ivery purchased the firearms for other individuals from Chicago, who paid him between $100 and $800 over the cost of the firearms to make the purchase. Law enforcement has recovered seven of the firearms: six in Chicago and one in Gary. Five of the firearms were recovered by law enforcement within one month of purchase, and one was recovered at the scene of a shooting.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Chicago Police Department, and the Gary Police Department. This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Nicholas J. Padilla.

This case was prosecuted as part of the joint federal, state, and local Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) Program, the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.

have any of you watched new nycity chief of police whine about guns to stupid to arm the good people of the city. deputize them all and watch crime move to nj

Wild Bill

Yes, he will not succeed in reducing crime until he stops blaming inanimate objects and targets people that use inanimate objects to commit crime.

Don

Amazing. You’re against stopping bad guys being deniied guns. You’re OK with the killings, robberies and assaults. Good guys should be cheering the ATF for enforcing existing laws.

But Don, the point that we have been trying to make is that laws infringing on gun rights are unconstitutional. Any statute that is contrary to the Constitution ( the Bill of Rights is part of the Constitution) is null and void. Please see Marbury v. Madison.

Don

BUT, dirt bags selling guns to killers, robbers, and all around bad guys should be illegal. These dirt bags are going to be the death of gun rights. I hate unconstitutional laws. The NFA needs to be repealed. But selling guns to gangsters is wrong.

Country Boy

the criminals have many other ways to obtain firearms as well. AAMOF it’s easier for them to obtain firearms than for you.

Wild Bill

Catch, convict, and incarcerate or execute the dirt bags, killers, and robbers. The knowledge of sure punishment reduces crime to near zero; there would be no gangs; and all around bad guys would keep themselves in check.

swmft

biggest problem for that to work , das need to be honest, and police too in florida we had 17 cases of people on death row who could not have committed the crime proof was hidden by prosecution, so the crime of intensionally persecuting someone needs to be added to keep the enforcers honest with death as only punishment

swmft

killing a child is wrong are you pro choice?

JSNMGC

You choose not to read what is written – over and over again.

Many don’t want some “existing laws” (the ones that are clearly unconstitutional) to be enforced.

That group of people wants murderers, robbers, and other violent criminals arrested, prosecuted, convicted, and incarcerated. That group would like those criminals to remain incarcerated for an appropriate amount of time. That is not happening. A certain percentage of enforcers are busy enforcing gun laws, mask mandates, and harassing people who have done nothing wrong.

swmft

serve and protect is dead, and their oath with it….remember oath keepers are bad people even the dark skinned ones are white supremacists

Stag

Existing laws are infringement and their enforcement isn’t stopping anyone from killing, robbing, or assaulting.

Country Boy

And let’s not forget it’s already illegal to shoot/kill people.Those that do seem to skirt any real punishment.

Yet another instance of someone having their rights violated by government thugs.

JimyP

Another hood rat who got less time than he deserves.

Stag

Another Butter/Fudd who loves infringement.

“This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Chicago Police Department, and the Gary Police Department.”

CourageousLion

Should say just the opposite. The case was investigated by the Chicago PD and the Gary PD and then handed over to the BATF. Everyone involved was a oath breaker. So the 24 year old who was convicted of this NON CRIME, no victim, no crime now has his life ruined for being a entrepreneur in a prohibited business.

JSNMGC

It’s incredible how many people believe the BATFE and Democrat politicians are the only bad guys.

Don

WE can’t trust Republicans either. Reagan and GHW bush screwed us over. GW Bush said he would sign an assault weapons ban. Republicans lie about the second amendment knowing we don’t have anyone else to vote for.

JSNMGC

That was part of my point – the BATFE, Democrat politicians, most Republican politicians, and a certain percentage of enforcers (including you, when you were an enforcer) are the bad guys.

When “they” shoot the dentist’s dog, point guns and scream obscenities at his wife and children, handcuff him, and tear his house apart looking for something he bought legally and with which he did nothing wrong, the dentist and his friends won’t be thinking about politicians.

“They” includes a certain percentage of municipal enforcers.

Stag

You have plenty of other people to vote for. You should start voting for those people instead of voting for whoever has the R next to their name out of fear of the other guy winning. As long as you keep rewarding these Republicans with your vote they’ll keep infringing on our rights.

Big George

Chicago doesn’t have a police department…it was defunded. Now they use the actors from that new TV show ‘Chicago P.D.’! They solve crimes in an hour…44 minutes if you eliminate the ‘My Pillow’ commercials!

Wild Bill

Most humorous!

swmft

how could anyone down vote that ,best laugh I have had since hearing the new york Police Commissioner cry about gun problems in the city. wait till scotus says the people have a right to their guns directly to him he will cry louder

Big George

Thanks, I thought so too. Mayhaps Ammoland should allow us to see who’s voting by hovering over the ‘thumbs’ like they used too.

JPM

BATF strikes again. I’m sure someone, somewhere will sleep better knowing that BATF is alive and well and still pissing on the 2nd Amendment.

CourageousLion

Oh, I know I do. NOT!

Wild Bill

About 99 percent of them think that they are woke.

Deplorable Bill

A well regulated militia, being necessary to a free state, the RIGHT of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. The second amendment, THE law of the land. It does not matter if the buyer is a dirt bag. Does not matter how many guns the man bought, if he bought them for someone or who he sold them to, the man has every right (and obligation) to keep and bear arms under the constitution. The REAL criminals here are the members of the batfe, both local P.D.’s, Padilla and DeGuilio the judge in the case.… Read more »

JimyP

Rubbish. Those with such disregard for the safety of others should remain prohibited from buying, owning or otherwise possessing firearms of any kind.

Wild Bill

I’m thinking that there are many that have complete and utter disregard for the safety, health, and even existence of others, but they have not , yet, committed a crime. Should they be prohibited from buying, owning, or possessing. Soros, Blumberg, and Gates are prime examples.

And then there are the reformed, the history of American law has tolerance for those that have paid their debt to society. Permanent gun rights disability added to a state sentence is a relatively new concept and a huge infringement on the 10th Amendment police powers of the various states.

Deplorable Bill

OK, start by disbanding the atfe. What you said is NOT constitutional. READ the 2A, see above. Says nothing about dirt bags, murderers, corrupt cops and politicians etc. If you are not in jail or the loony farm then you have every right and obligation to keep and bear arms. Robbers, murderers, cartel operators, terrorists, druggies etc. all tend to die of natural causes —— natural to their line of work. The free American citizen has every constitutional right to keep and bear arms and given history, the American citizen deals with bad guys nearly as often as the cops.… Read more »

wish I could give this one 100 thumbs up , you did leave out more people are beaten to death with hands and feet which is true as well, but the hammer is the only blunt instrument broken out and given its own place in the chart
