With the murders that have happened along Meekland in the passed three years.. Sure this well help the population control and rid those on welfare cause those are the ones that well end up killing each other.. Little do many know that the Castro Valley gun shop are the former owners of Trader on east 14th in San Leandro.. This is just not what San Lorenzo and San Leandro needs..

Hey XXXXXXX Check your facts before posting comments, The owner of Castro Valley Gun Shop was never the owner of Traders.

Sorry for the late response.. I just saw your posting xxxxxxx. But yes, Joel is correct. Traders was under different ownership than the former CV Gun Shop (now applying to be Valley Guns & Ammo). Here's the follow-up story regarding a recent meeting on their conditional use permit if you haven't already read it: http://sanlorenzo.patch.com/articles/proposed-gun-shop-has-many-supporters

It's a legitimate business. A place where guns can be serviced and repaired properly, thus increasing the safety factor. Would you deny the permit for an auto repair facility so your cousin Elwood could continue to be your mechanic?

Dan I don't under stand why anybody would have a problem with a legitimate business. The fear mongers like xxxxxxx that mislead people by making up stories are doing a disservice to our community. And I believe the Home's Association has wasted more money on filling this appeal. This store should be open for business and paying TAXES. They had received there variance to go ahead with the store and then the GUN HATERS came out. Good luck gentleman!
