Smyrna (Georgia) gun shop owner loses another round in legal fight with New York
http://www.ajc.com/news/cobb/smyrna-gun-shop-owner-935467.html

A Cobb County gun store owner has lost another -- and most likely the final -- round in a five-year-old legal fight that started when New York City sued Adventure Outdoors in Smyrna, seven other gun dealers in Georgia and many more in other states.

Adventure Outdoors was the only business of the 27 stores Mayor Michael Bloomberg sued to get to a courtroom in the case New York City brought against businesses in states with less restrictive gun laws. The lawsuit said those businesses, because of the laws in their respective states, were supplying criminals in his town. The cases against three of the shops sued were dismissed, while the other owners either settled or defaulted.

In 2008, as a jury was being chosen for a trial against the only remaining defendant in the case, Adventure Outdoors, owner Jay Wallace also defaulted. Wallace said he expected a trial in a New York courtroom would be unfair and his legal team would be more successful with an appeal.

That appeal was lost Wednesday, and Wallaces Smyrna business now must comply with monitoring. The federal appeals court in New York said, however, that the terms of the monitoring laid out when the trial was aborted three years ago were too broad and would have to be revised. In all the other cases, New York paid for a court-appointed monitor to oversee gun sale records for three years.

They sell guns to criminals and they don't care as long as they get paid.

yup

12.  Don't deny it.
My question is if it was because he is, as jpak put it, a (((CLANG CLANG))), or is it because of his known anti-gun policies and leanings.

THAT is why I asked jpak to cite to proof.
