JoJo's Gun and Pawn
Jojo's has appeared on various lists of "internet firearms dealers." Former owner Bill Dollar advertised free transfer of firearms ordered from out-of-state mail order dealers under his store's Federal Firearms License.
In August, September and October 2002, JoJo's sold 17 handguns to 3 different members of a trafficking ring which re-sold them illegally in Chicago. Several guns used in shootings in Chicago were traced back to the store. The traffickers, Rondell Jones, Joseph Murray and an accomplice, were prosecuted, but JoJo's was not.
