Feds indict Kansas gun dealer for selling pistol to felon

A Kansas gun dealer has been indicted in federal court on charges of selling a gun to a prohibited person.

Charles Black, owner of Triple B Guns and Ammo in Parsons, Kansas, knowingly sold a Kel-Tec PF-9 pistol to a convicted felon, according to court documents.

The felon involved in the Dec. 3 deal was a confidential informant with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

According to court documents, Black has been charged with a felony and the feds seized his store’s inventory comprised of dozens of firearms and thousands of rounds of ammo.

His business is still registered with the Kansas Secretary of State, with the last filing in December 2015.

Black is scheduled to appear back in a Wichita federal court on Aug. 24.
