Over 300 Firearms Seized and Firearms Dealer Closed Down

G2 Sports Violated Numerous Federal Laws

BATFE LogoUnited States Attorney Josh J. Minkler announced today that approximately 390 firearms, silencers and receivers were seized from Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL), G2FS LLC (G2 Sports Products/G2 Firearms Sales) on Tuesday, October 8, 2019. Months of investigation into the FFL, located at 8255 Indy Court in Indianapolis, revealed numerous regulatory and statutory violations of federal law. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) found evidence that the FFL knowingly transferred handguns to an out-of-state resident, made false entries in records, failed to report multiple sales of handguns and knowingly transferred firearms to a prohibited person.

The FFL agreed to an enhanced surrender of its federal license. As a result, none of the owners will be eligible to reapply for their license or engage any further in the business of dealing in firearms. The owners also agreed to the seizure of approximately 390 firearms, silencers and receivers including rifles, shotguns and handguns with a total estimated value of $224,000.00.

This seizure follows an Indictment against Scott Genung for being a Prohibited Person in Possession of a Firearm. The investigation revealed that law enforcement made several undercover purchases of firearms at G2 Sports from Genung, a convicted felon, who personally processed the sales. Scott Genung was observed carrying a firearm on his person during those transactions. Genung, who indicated he was responsible for much of the store operations at G2 Sports, also placed an order from a distributor for a firearm, despite the fact he was prohibited by law from doing so.

“This prosecution, firearms seizure, and license surrender represent our commitment to reducing violent crime in the Southern District of Indiana by keeping firearms out of the hands of individuals who have no legal right to possess firearms,” said Minkler.   Continue reading
