STATEMENT BY MAYOR BLOOMBERG ON GUILTY PLEA BY SOUTH CAROLINA GUN DEALER LARRY MICKALIS
"Today's guilty plea by Larry Mickalis, one of the gun dealers sued by New York City for selling guns illegally, confirms what we have long contended: it's a small group of dealers who are providing the guns used in crimes. It is important to hold those dealers accountable for the harm they cause New Yorkers and others. Justice has been furthered today, and we will continue our efforts to keep New Yorkers safe."
