Edit the bst file (make a copy of it with your own name).  In a style
file here, I have

FUNCTION {format.url}
{ url empty${ "" } { new.block "URL \url{" url * "}" * } if$
}

I think changing this to

FUNCTION {format.url}
{ url empty${ "" } { "" } if$
}

will suppress the URL.  However, I don't have TeX installed on this
machine, so can't test this myself :).  Alternately, you could go
through and delete all of the calls to the format.url function.
