new_store_3.jpgA Georgia gun dealer that was accused along with 27 others of selling weapons that alleged ended up in the hands of criminals in NYC, has refused to go to trial after all. Owner Jay Wallace had originally opted to fight Bloomberg’s out-of-state gun shop meddling, but claims he has no chance of getting a fair trial, so why bother:

Adventure Sports, “a small retail dealer with limited resources,” has “chosen not to engage in the futile exercise of defending itself at a bench trial, and to appeal any default judgment that may be entered against it,” wrote the defense attorney, John Renzulli.

The alleged “straw purchase” enabler is countersuing the city for $400 million, accusing the mayor of libel. |Newsday|
