Council won't move against gun trader

        Cincinnati City Council decided Monday not to pursue complaints against a gun dealer operating in Avondale.

        Robert McKibben, also known as “Trader Bob” on the gun show circuit, told council's Law and Public Safety Committee that his Dellway Street office has a desk and a phone, but no guns, inventory or display merchandise on site.

        Several residents of Avondale had complained about the business after learning that a gun licensing permit request was pending for Mr. McKibben.

        Assistant City Solicitor Robert H. Johnston Jr. said such a permit is not necessary for Mr. McKibben's operation, and the dealer withdrew his application Monday.

        The council committee took no further action on the issue.
