BOSTON (Legal Newsline) — Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey announced Feb. 22 that Outback Arms, a gun dealer, and its owner Gene Steve Beliveau, will pay $7,000 to resolve allegations of selling handguns that are not listed on the approved roster for Massachusetts. Outback Arms also agreed to come into compliance with state law.

According to Healey’s office, the defendants committed numerous state violations. Outback Arms allegedly sold firearms that were not legally supposed to have been transferred to Massachusetts. Additionally, Outback Arms sold firearms that did not meet the statutory safety testing requirements for the state.

“Our state’s strong laws help gun dealers prevent access to illegal weapons in our communities and ensures responsible gun ownership,” Healey said in a statement. “[This] agreement requires this gun dealer to come into compliance and do its part to keep the public safe.”

Handling the case for Massachusetts were senior trial counsel Gary Klein and assistant attorney general Samantha Shusterman of Healey’s Consumer Protection Division, as well as David Bolcome of the Civil Investigations Division.
