It sounds like her problem is going to come from the fact that she admitted to buying the guns with the intent to turn them around for a profit.
Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner.
For those of you who may never have worked in the criminal defense field, let assure you that you would be astounded
at the number of people who talk themselves right into jail time.
