Bad Neighbors In Virginia

posted on May 26, 2015

Sometimes you have to just shake your head and wonder what people are thinking. Such is the case with a neighborhood in Arlington, Va., where residents are protesting the opening of a gun shop in the area.

Since the shop can sell guns only to customers who have passed a background check, there’s no reason to think that the shop would have any negative impact on the area. Unless, perhaps, some of the neighbors in Cherrydale and Maywood neighborhoods don’t trust any gun purchasers—even those who are proven to be law-abiding citizens? 

For his part, owner James Gates, a Marine veteran, plans to be a good neighbor. “We want to be part of the community,” Gates told the Washington Post. “We’ll have security, and classes on safe handling of firearms and safe carry. People who have questions should give us a call and give us a chance.”
