Gun dealer finally vindicated by district appeals court. Ginny Simone speaks by phone with Dave Kopel, research director for the Independence Institute, about the recent ruling by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in the case of Angela Spinelli. A panel of judges decided that the New York Police Department violated Spinelli's rights when they performed a warrantless search and seizure on her Bronx gun store, confiscated her inventory and suspended her license. Kopel explains that Spinelli, whose customers included police officers, had to fight for nine years in order to get her license back.
