CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- Federal authorities have charged four men with illegally selling more than 300 guns.
According to the Chattanooga Times Free Press, a federal grand jury in Chattanooga indicted the men on Tuesday, charging them with conspiring to sell firearms without a federal license and selling weapons to people prohibited from buying guns.
Those charged are 40-year-old Kevin Dawson of Ooltewah, 65-year-old Jack Wardlaw of Columbia and two Athens brothers -- 67-year-old Carl Moore and 48-year-old Richard Moore.
During arraignment Thursday, all but Richard Moore entered not guilty pleas. Moore will enter a plea when he returns with a lawyer July 12. All four are free on their own recognizance until their trial.
The complaint listed 323 guns traded or sold at gun shows in Chattanooga, Knoxville and Nashville.
