2 sentenced in Arizona for illegal machine guns

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Two licensed gun dealers have been sentenced to federal prison in Arizona for their roles in an illegal machine-gun manufacturing and sales operation.

Prosecutors say 59-year-old Idan C. Greenberg of Glendale got a 33-month prison term and 60-year-old Randolph Benjamin Rodman of Maryland was sentenced to 121 months.

Prosecutors say Rodman, Greenberg and three other licensed dealers in Arizona plus another in Maryland conspired to make newly manufactured machine guns in violation of a 1986 ban.

The dealers were accused of transferred the guns using paperwork for different firearms.

Authorities say Rodman and Greenberg conspired with the other dealers to circumvent the machine gun regulations between September 1993 and April 2009.

A federal jury in Phoenix convicted Greenberg and Rodman last December.
