My brother lost a childhood friend in Arlington to accidental gun violence in the home at age 12 and other friends to gun shots later in life. I went to HBW; I can't imagine having a gun shop so close to my school.

In addition to the obvious issue of locating a gun shop in close proximity to schools (providing easy access) I also don't think a gun shop belongs in a retail centre containing a yoga studio, dance studio and other retail establishments whose values are non-violence focused.

We have the same issue in Falls Church City. There's a gun store even closer than this one. Right in the city, within less than a mile from 4 schools.

Seriously a gun store 2 blocks from a school and just a few blocks from the White House... what are you thinking????

I am an Arlington resident who thinks the last thing our community needs is more guns in the hands of civilians.

I am signing because the LAST thing we need is more guns in our community. Surely the tragic loss of 9 lives in Charleston this week has again shown us the devastation of the proliferation of guns in America.

I don't want guns in Arlington county, especially so close to a high school and on a main road. Your kind are not welcome here. The country needs fewer guns not more.

I oppose the opening of a gun shop in Arlington.
