Gun dealer takes on New York City in court

NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s crusade against illegal guns entered the courtroom on Tuesday in a battle against a Georgia gun dealer.

It is the first of two civil cases New York has brought against 27 gun dealers in five states — Georgia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Virginia — on the grounds that their sales practices allowed criminals to buy guns and then bring them into the city.

All but one dealer in the first lawsuit — Jay Wallace — has settled out of court. Wallace, 51, owner of a sporting goods store in the Atlanta, Georgia, suburb of Smyrna, vowed to fight on, likening his battle to David versus Goliath.

“I believe that I care more about firearms getting into criminals’ hands than the mayor of New York City does,” Wallace was quoted by local media has having said at Brooklyn federal court. “I’m in the business. I know how my business is run.”

God Bless Mr. Wallace!

I have been following that case here where I live, and I hope he wins.
