7/17/2009 2:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Adrian J. GilliamThe guy who allegedly sold the gun that killed Steve McNair -- a man named Adrian J. Gilliam Jr. (left) -- has been arrested by ATF agents in Nashville, Tenn.

McNair's mistress, Sahel Kazemi, bought the gun on July 2 -- two days before she murdered Steve and then killed herself.

Prosecutors are expected to announce the charges against Gilliam this afternoon.

UPDATE: Gilliam has been charged with illegally possessing a firearm. A big no-no for the convicted felon.

Gilliam was convicted of murder and attempted armed robbery in 1993.

Yeah it makes total sense to arrest the guy who sold the gun...it can't just be a simple case of murder/suicide; someone has to be blamed.

I blame OBAMA - let's have him arrested and sent to prision for life for what he has done in the short time in office to destroy AMERICA. That is the real crime here. McNair got what he deserved for cheating. Dirt Bag Cheater.

What was the crime. It is not illegal to legally sell someone a gun. Car manufacturers cannot be held accountable if people use their car in a illegal way. He will not get convicted. Harvey what is the crime?

I love irony.....the chick that killed him was a jealous ho. She was having an affair with McNair, but when she found McNair was cheating on her too, she killed him. Oh the irony!

Seriously? I'd be willing to bet they are not the first case of murder/suicide involving a firearm, so I'd be willing to bet any other case would involve the gun seller to have no blame whatsoever. For all intents and purposes, once someone legally purchases a firearm, it is his/her own discretion for what to use it for. Even if the gun was sold to a mega-celebrity why the crap is the gun seller to blame?

Psst... folks. Isn't there a federal law, or is state-by-state only, that requires background checks and 30 day hold on purchases? Sounds like if ATF was involved in arrest, there is some law the seller broke--not that he would be charged for accessory after the fact.

And how the hell does Obama have anything to do with this? :**looks perplexed at comments**
