Gun Shop Causes Debate in Lawrence

KSAL StaffNovember 16, 2015

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Lawrence school board members have opposed a shooting range and gun shop proposed for a location across the street from the district’s college and career center.

School board member Shannon Kimball says it’s not appropriate for a business that close to a school to sell deadly weapons. The board called the proposal “unreasonable” in a letter.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the Douglas County Planning Commission is scheduled to consider the issue Monday. The commission’s report says commissioners will vote on whether to approve businessman Rick Sells’ request to rezone about 1 acre of land for the indoor shooting range and a gun sales and repair shop. The rezoning request is recommended for approval.

A vacant industrial building currently sits on the lot.
