A Queens pistol-range owner busted last month as part of the city's anti-gun initiative sued Police Commissioner Ray Kelly yesterday, demanding the return of his clients' gun licenses, The Post has learned.

Michael Spallone, 43, co-owner of the Woodhaven Rifle & Pistol Range, was hit with a misdemeanor on May 24 for allegedly "delivering" a Glock-19 handgun to a civilian undercover investigator working for the city's corporation counsel.

The lawsuit claims the Queens District Attorney's Office has already indicated that it was considering dropping the criminal charges in the case - and says the "sting" was nothing but a mayoral publicity stunt, according to Spallone's lawyer, John Chambers.

    What is most disturding is the claim that the bust was all part of a publicity stunt.

    Although such things are aimed at the more fearful and hysterical part of the population, it is an easy mark for a politician seeking a boost.

    I hope he wins too, but it probably would not recieve the same attention as the "sting." It would not fit with the govt/media's campaign of public safety.
