A Las Vegas gun store owner is in trouble with the law again.
Kelly D. Carn, 54, known as “Machine Gun Kelly,” has been indicted by a federal grand jury on weapons charges.
Carn, the owner of the Gun Vault, Inc., faces charges of unlawfully receiving or possessing machine guns and forging gun registration applications submitted to the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
He was arrested by ATF agents earlier this month and later released to face a Nov. 18 trial before U.S. District Judge Andrew Gordon.
The indictment alleges his illegal activity occurred between September and December of 2011.
Carn faces two separate weapons indictments in District Court on charges of unlawfully selling a machine gun and theft in other sales of machine guns, silencers and short barrel weapons that were never delivered.
Those indictments allege the illegal activity occurred between 2005 and 2009.
Police said Carn “preyed upon” people unfamiliar with the process of getting federal approval to possess a machine gun.
He took money after falsely claiming he would submit paperwork for purchasing the weapons to the ATF. He often never submitted the paperwork, police said.
Carn’s lawyer, Chris Oram declined comment.
