Marine Corps veteran’s proposed gun shop riles Arlington, Virginia

Residents of Arlington, Virginia — which in 2012 overwhelmingly voted for President Obama and sits directly across the Potomac River from the nation’s capital — are trying to bully Marine Corps veteran James Gates, 28, from opening a gun shop in their neighborhood.

Last week, a petition was formed by local resident Susan Newton protesting the shop’s opening and demanding property owner Kostas Kapasouris renege on his lease to the young veteran. The shop’s grand opening is planned for August.

“We, the citizens of Arlington County, oppose a gun shop at this location,” the petition at reads, citing the proposed venue is within two blocks of a city school and close to others. “It is unconscionable, in an era where our children are forced to practice ‘lock down’ drills designed to train them how to protect themselves from armed intruders, to locate a gun shop anywhere in the vicinity of schools.

    The woman is passing around a petition. That’s all she’s doing. If the neighborhood agrees that it doesn’t want a gun shop in the area, then do they have that right? What’s the difference if it was a massage parlor, a “gentlemen’s club” or a medical marijuana dispensary? Or a soup kitchen or homeless shelter? Or a mosque? Does the community have a say so in what businesses are allowed? They’re allowed to protest having a sex offender in the neighborhood. Why not this?

    Follow that line of reasoning and any mosques in this country should be located within active volcanoes.

    Another diluted demoRAT female who likes to demand and push her ideals off on everyone else. My guess is that she is not worth 2 cents to anyone but herself and of course maybe the traitorous demoRATS.
