He was arrested last year after Australian customs authorities opened one of the consoles he'd shipped from the US to find "a 9mm pistol, gun parts and two empty magazines."

He'd also been shipping disassembled weapons to the United Kingdom and Sweden, with all three countries having relatively strict gun control laws.
