Canada Attempting to Extradite U.S. Gun Dealer Accused of Smuggling Firearms

Canada's National Post newspaper reports that Canada is seeking to extradite to Toronto a Chicago-based gun dealer who was arrested in the U.S. in June and has been charged with violating the Arms Export Control Act for allegedly exporting more than 200 firearms from the United States to Canada.

The article indicates that the "extradition case against Ugur "Mike" Yildiz began on August 18 but was kept under seal until late Friday, when a Chicago court released documents showing that Toronto police have charged the Turkish-born American with conspiracy to traffic firearms." The story notes that "two of the firearms registered to Yildiz were used in attempted homicides in the Greater Toronto Area."

The story notes that this case appears to the be the first in many years that Canada has attempted to extradite a person charged with smuggling firearms from the U.S. to Canada.
