It's those who oppose fundamental 2A rights that have spread the idea that gun stores areRead More"unde sirable". I feel that they are no different from a hardware store or something similar. Don't forget it wasn't all that long ago that you were able to purchase firearms at stores such as Sears and even Chicago's downtown Marshal Field store and you can still do so at Walmart. To me guns are just a tool for self defense and sport. If you don't feel the need to own this tool then don't frequent the store that sells it, but don't infringe on my ability to do so. I'd rather have a gun store next to my home than a bar. Not that I really hate bars, I'd likely have much less trouble with the former than the latter.

Rob - You may be right that a gun store may be more desirable than some others but residents mayRead Morebel ieve it's not something they want in their 'hood. Try opening up a Walmart in Lake Forest, it's not a safety concern and people might not think it's what good for property values. Residents have the right to voice concern over types of businesses they welcome into their communities. Just cause you have a right to carry your deadly weapon doesn't mean you have a right to open up deadly weapon stores anywhere you want.

Accepting a gun club in Morton Grove goes right along with DiMaria's philosophy of 'if it's legal,Read Morei t's ok for Morton Grove'. He may do a small part in balancing the village budget, but the image of Morton Grove will suffer. No more awards for the best town to raise a family, unless the village bribes some committee to give it. He will do his best to fill the village with gambling, taverns, and now a gun club.
