SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A gun shop is opening near Leatherby’s Family Creamery on Arden Way.
Viewer Connie Wallace sent a question to cbs13.com/askus and wanted to know:
“Why is there a gun shop opening right next to Leatherby’s on Arden Way in Sacramento? I accept that people have a right to own guns, but it seems wrong to have one situated by a place frequented by families. Does the Leatherby business have no say in what business goes into the empty space? My husband and I are really curious.”
CBS13 visited the area to take a look. “The Guns Store” is located in the same building as Leatherby’s Family Creamery. The businesses share a parking lot.
We took the question to Sacramento County. The Planning Commission told us:
“Gunsmith, Gun & Ammo sales are allowed as general retail in a variety of zones. If the use is permitted in the zone (e.g. does not trigger a use permit or a rezone), then there is no public process for surrounding businesses to have a say.”
