CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A Massachusetts man has been sentenced in New Hampshire to 21 months in prison on firearms-related charges.

Court documents say 35-year-old Christian Gonzalez of Lawrence, Mass., admitted he wasn’t able to legally purchase firearms so he solicited another individual, or “straw purchaser,” to buy them for him.

Prosecutors say on seven different occasions, Gonzalez drove the “straw purchaser” to a federally licensed firearms dealer in New Hampshire and gave him the money to buy 11 firearms. Gonzalez took them. Two of the firearms were later recovered in Malden, Mass.
