I find it beyond ironic that a story about a McDonald's going in in Oak park made the front page of the Bee while at the same time a gun store has apparently been approved for the former Cornerstone restaurant location at J St. and 24th in Midtown. It is not the gun store per se that I and many of my Midtown neighbors object to(though there ARE 16 other gun stores listed in the Sacramento yellow pages) but that it is a very unfortunate and inappropriate location(being in the middle of a residential neighborhood and only two blocks from two different schools) and that there was NO advance notice or chance for public comment. According to Principal City Planner Greg Bitter In current code there isn't a requirement for a public hearing or discretionary planning permit for a gun store in the city.
A McDonald's drive through restaurant needs a planning permit but a gun shop smack dab in a residential community does not. Like I said, ironic.
Do you know what they call "accidental" shooting deaths of people and family members who are so scared of who and what foxnews tells them to be scared of that they think they need a gun for "protection"? "Thinning the herd"...OK, maybe a bit harsh but seriously, if people are too lazy to drive the 5 or 10 minutes to get to one of the SIXTEEN other gun stores listed in the yellow pages in the Sac area then they are too dumb to shop for a gun at a store in the middle of a residential neighborhood with tenants RIGHT above the store. Guns are FAR more likely to kill their owners and/or family members than they are "intruders"...We do NOT need this garbage in Midtown. Not at that great site. Freaking ridiculous. BTW, the CDD Principal planner is Greg Bitter at 916-808-7816 . Call if you want to complain about this.
