Martin Sentenced For Possession Of Homemade Silencer

Fort McCoy Man, Gary Dewayne Martin Sentenced To 24 Months For Possession Of Homemade Silencer

Ocala, FL (STL.News) U.S. District Judge Roy B. Dalton Jr. has sentenced Gary Dewayne Martin (31, Fort McCoy) to 24 months in federal prison for possession of an unregistered silencer.  The court also ordered Martin to forfeit the silencer and a .22 caliber semiautomatic rifle.  Martin had pleaded guilty on January 6, 2021.

According to court documents, on September 20, 2019, deputies from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office were called to Martin’s residence.  Witnesses said that Martin was walking around wearing body armor and wielding a shotgun, threatening to kill himself and others.  Witnesses further stated that Martin had discharged his shotgun into a nearby campfire.  While investigating the campfire, deputies found the shotgun, two spent shotgun shells, and a .22 caliber rifle with an attached homemade silencer secured to the barrel.  The silencer was not registered as required by federal law.  Pursuant to a risk protection order, deputies then searched the residence and seized a total of 37 firearms and large amounts of ammunition.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.
