SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa man who dealt firearms without a license in several states has been placed on probation for three years in a federal gun case. The U.S. attorney’s office says 62-year-old Tony Hulstein, of Sheldon, was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Sioux City on Friday. He was ordered to perform 150 hours of community service and pay a $500 special assessment. Hulstein must forfeit all firearms, three guns safes and a trailer used to transport the guns. Prosecutors say Hulstein bought and sold over 800 guns during a four-year period and was in possession of 100 more when he was arrested.
