WICHITA (AP) – A Kansas couple admits they violated federal firearm regulations while selling weapons out of a combined beauty shop and gun store.

U.S. prosecutors announced Thursday that 51-year-old Jeffrey Eberhart and his wife, 42-year-old Tracey Eberhart, of Augusta pleaded guilty to federal firearms violations.

They operated Tracey’s Dream Weavers Salon and Sporting Good, which they advertised as “Where Beauty and Bullets Collide.”

Jeffrey Eberhart admitted he bought and sold hundreds of firearms at the store and at gun shows although he didn’t have a federal firearms license because he was a convicted felon.

Tracey Eberhart was a licensed federal firearms dealer but admitted she didn’t keep records or make required federal reports on at least 33 firearms transactions.

They will be sentenced April 15.
