Larry Mickalis, the South Carolina gun dealer who sued Michael Bloomberg for defamation of character because the mayor said he was selling guns illegally, was just indicted.
Because he allegedly sold guns to someone he knew was a convicted felon.
Bloomberg released the following statement:
“I want to commend federal officials in South Carolina who conducted the investigation that led to this indictment. Federal law prohibits the sale of guns to convicted felons, and those that break the law should be punished. Our complaint said that we found this dealer broke the law, now the federal government has reached the same conclusion.”
