NORFOLK, Va. (Tribune News Service) — Using his military discount, a Norfolk-based sailor bought and resold 23 firearms for profit, according to court documents.

Pino, who was honorably discharged from the Navy in December, was sentenced Monday to 2 1/2 years in prison. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/sailor-used-military-discount-to-buy-guns-and-resell-them-despite-atf-warnings-1.571325
