Manassas Woman Could be Jailed on Federal Firearms Violation

by Associated Press posted Feb 7 2013 7:00PM
 ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - A Manassas woman has pleaded guilty to violating federal firearms laws after buying 31 handguns over a two-week span at three Virginia gun shows.
 
     Forty-four-year-old Kimberly Dinkins pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court in Alexandria to dealing firearms without a license. She faces up to five years in prison.
 
     Court records show that Dinkins resold all of the guns for a profit.
 
     Federal law does not require a person to register as a firearms dealer for occasional private gun sales. But it does require a dealer's license if a person devotes significant time and energy to the sale of firearms with a primary goal of making a profit.
 
     A Virginia law limiting individuals to one handgun purchase per month was repealed last year.
