A Miami man admitted he tried to sell seven guns believed to have been owned by family members of Iraqi dictator Sadaam Hussein, weapons that were sent to New Jersey to be seen by prospective buyers, U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman said.

David Philip Ryan, 50, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to transport stolen firearms and faces up to 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he’s sentenced in June.
