Convicted Bowling Green Gun Shipper Scheduled For Sentencing


BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- A Bowling Green man is scheduled for sentencing on charges of shipping weapons inside hollowed-out video game systems to foreign countries.

U.S. District Judge Joseph H. McKinley will determine what punishment to hand down for 34-year-old Adam Bunger of Bowling Green on Thursday.

Bunger pleaded guilty in March to illegally exporting firearms, illegally shipping and transporting firearms in foreign commerce, shipping firearms in foreign commerce with obliterated serial numbers and illegal delivery of firearms for transportation and shipment in foreign commerce.

Federal authorities investigated Bunger after a package arrived in Australia and was found in a forensic examination to contain disassembled components of a 9mm pistol, gun parts and two empty magazines that were in a hollowed out Xbox video game system.

Police traced that weapon and others to Bunger.
