Attorney General Maura Healey shuts down Martinello Quality Firearms for allegedly selling illegal Glocks

Guns

Anthony Martinello, who owns Martinello Quality Firearms in Sutton, is surrendering his license to sell firearms after allegedly selling illegal Glock handguns out of his residence, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey said Wednesday.

Martinello sold Glocks without load indicators or magazine safety disconnects, which Healey’s office said is required by state handgun safety regulations.

Martinello was also using his home as a “permanent place of business” for gun sales and transactions, which is illegal, Healey’s office said in a release.

He reached a settlement with Healey’s office to not seek a license to sell, rent or lease firearms, handguns, rifles and shotguns for three years, and he is paying the state $10,000 to cover the fees and costs of Healey’s investigation.
