Authorities accuse man of illegally manufacturing, selling gun used by Odessa, TX killer
Seth Ator. Ector County (TX) Sheriff

[Ed. – So now it appears nothing about this incident involved legal purchase or ownership of a gun.  Everything that led to Seth Ator having a gun is already illegal. (Private sales are legal, but selling an illegal homemade gun is not legal.)]

Authorities in Texas have identified a person suspected of illegally manufacturing a rifle and selling it to the man who allegedly killed seven people and wounded more than 20 others in West Texas last Saturday, a report said.

Law enforcement authorities believe the man lives in Lubbock, Texas, but his identity was not released, the Wall Street Journal reported. …

Authorities believe the man was illegally buying parts for guns, assembling a single firearm and then reselling it, the Journal reported.
