The gun, the infernal gun, has been sitting in a safety deposit box for 22 years. The old man who has kept it all these years goes to the bank every now and then to check on it. Sometimes he takes other people who just want to have a look at the black .38-caliber Colt Cobra pistol that killed Lee Harvey Oswald. Jack Ruby used the gun to kill the man who assassinated President John F. Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963. And America watched it all on television.

A lawyer was removed Tuesday as executor of Jack Ruby's estate, whose major asset is the .38-caliber Colt Cobra revolver the Dallas nightclub owner used to kill presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. A jury ruled that Ruby's former attorney, Jules Mayer, grossly mismanaged the estate after Ruby died in 1967. Dallas County Probate Judge Robert E. Price must now decide how to distribute Ruby's assets. Ruby's brother, Earl, had sued, asking to be named executor.
