The discussion comes in the wake of last Friday's The original poster in the forum, calcanuck, says:
"I am compelled to ask why there is a new gun shop in the same complex as Strikes Bowling, Coaches bar, and California Fitness? Who thought that was a good idea? How can we get this business moved?"
Many of the ensuing comments go on to defend the business -- some saying that there's nothing wrong with having a gun shop in that location and others pointing to the current economy, in which landlords must take any tenant they can get.
"Why would we want it moved?" asks one commenter. "As far as I know they have done nothing illegal."
Calcanuck goes on to explain that he/she would prefer a gun shop not be near a bar or family entertainment center.
"Interesting that many people piped in about a tattoo shop not be allowed in old town because of the 'clientele' it would attract," wrote calcanuck. "But guns stores no problem!"
Another Elk Grove gun store, The Gun Room, is located in a mostly industrial area in southern Elk Grove.
What do you think of the location? Problematic, or a non-issue?
