The gun shop is endangering to the nearby neighborhoods and gives youth access to firearms.

Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce, Los Gatos Chamber of Commerce
I encourage you to revoke the license of the new Gun Shop in downtown Los Gatos at 611 University Ave. The shop will give youth the access to firearms and will endanger surrounding neighborhoods.

      The town public did not review this application. While selling guns is legal - so are many businesses which are denied licenses in Los Gatos - (like American Apparel and Cafe Rouge's wine license). The fact that the application was not reviewed smacks of cronyism and corruption - since a town- employed police officer is a part owner, and the police chief sent an email calling the shop "an asset" to the town manager 3 days prior to the suspiciously hasty approval. The town manager then failed to inform the mayor for 70 more days. The process lacks transparency , neighborly consideration and simple common sense. The guns shop is within 1.5 miles of 3 elementary schools and it is traumatic for children and their parents to walk by a gun store in the morning. This community has had several gun related deaths over the last few years, including a child at the closest elementary school to the gun store.

      We do not need the gun shop in Los Gatos. It is too close to schools, parks and residences.

      It is contrary to sound town management to allow this type of business so close to residences, schools and parks.
