Guns sold at Christopher Koninsky’s business, Team 88 Enterprises, were then trafficked to several states outside Georgia, U.S. Attorney BJay Pak said Tuesday. Koninsky, 52, was sentenced to six months in prison, followed by six months of home confinement and two years of supervised release, Pak’s office said.
“Licensed gun dealers have the responsibility to follow the laws and regulations that govern the privilege of selling guns,” Pak said in an emailed statement. “That includes preventing straw purchases from occurring and running background checks on the real buyers of the firearms they sell. Koninsky violated the trust invested in him and placed the community in grave danger when he allowed gun traffickers to acquire guns.”
