Texas man sentenced for illegally making guns sent to Mexico

A North Texas man has been sentenced to 6 1/2 years in federal prison for illegally making hundreds of firearms – some of which ended up in Mexico.

Gary Busby was sentenced Friday during a federal court hearing in Dallas.

He had been convicted in March on one count of conspiracy to manufacture firearms without a license and four counts of structuring financial transactions to evade reporting requirements.

Prosecutors say that between 2010 and 2011, the 65-year-old Busby – from Flower Mound near Dallas – manufactured hundreds of AR-15 and AK firearm receivers into fully functional firearms.
