Gun Shop in Oak Park
Try to open up a gun shop in the traditionally staunchly anti-gun suburb of Oak Park and you can expect to get some resistance.
That’s what Justin Delefuente got this week when he attended a public meeting to talk about his plan to start selling guns in a small storefront on Roosevelt Road near Ridgeland Avenue.
More than 80 people filled the Irving School Auditorium, expressing concerns about having a gun dealer around the corner from their homes and a block away from a public school.
Delefuente said he would only sell rifles and shotguns to the public. Handguns would only be sold to law enforcement personnel, he said.
Long guns are legal in Illinois and should be even more legal as various lawsuits work their ways through the courts and restore stolen freedoms to the citizens of Illinois. Eighty people worried about a gun shop catering to cops?
