Court Rules Against Gun Store

A Georgia gun store owner has lost another round in court against New York City. It’s the latest legal chapter over the issue of what the city called “rogue” dealers providing criminals easy access to guns.

A New York federal appeals court ruled Adventure Outdoors in Smyrna must submit to gun sale monitoring. However, the court said before that can happen, the parameters for monitoring must be revised.

New York City brought the original suit five years ago against not only the Smyrna store, but seven others in Georgia and over a dozen others nationwide. Other cases were either settled, defaulted, or thrown out.

Adventure Outdoors owner Jay Wallace says he’s still considering more legal options.

“When the city comes back and judge Weinstein comes back with their remedy for the case, if we consider it to be fair, ethical and constitutional or not. If it’s not, then we’ll take it back up to the appellate court.”

Wallace says taking his case to the U.S. Supreme Court is also an option.
