May 23, 2008 -- Mayor Bloomberg won't be able to say his piece about the gun menace on the city's streets at the upcoming trial of a Georgia gun dealer, a judge ruled yesterday.
"I'm not going to permit the case to turn into a media show for either side," said Brooklyn federal judge Jack Weinstein. "I see no reason to have the mayor here."
Bloomberg had hoped to take the stand next month against Jay Wallace, owner of Adventure Outdoors, which allegedly illegally sold guns later used by thugs in New York.
Bloomberg sued 27 out-of-state gun dealers in 2006 for illegally or negligently selling guns that made their way here.
All but three have settled, agreeing to let a special master oversee gun sales in their shops. Two others are slated to go to trial in September. http://www.nypost.com/seven/05232008/news/regionalnews/judge_uses_a_silencer_on_bloomy_112128.htm
Three groups spend other people's money: children, thieves, and politicians. All three need supervision. DICK ARMEY
