Big 2nd Amendment Case: Gun Shop Owner’s Lawsuit Heads To The Supreme Court

“Businessmen and gun rights advocates filed a petition with the Supreme Court to overturn a zoning law in Alameda County, California that bans gun shops from operating within 500 feet of a residential area.

Entrepreneurs John Teixeira, Steve Nobriga and Gary Gamaza attempted to open a gun shop in the city of San Lorenzo, but were met with hostility from an archaic law prohibiting the opening of the store near a residential area. This legislation is clearly an attack on the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.

According to a Fox News report, Teixeira and his business partners investigated the area and discovered that not a single business in the city met with the restrictive zoning law, showing that their potential gun shop was singled out by the county.

They filed a lawsuit to allow their business to open and received widespread support from gun rights organizations such as the Calguns Foundation, Second Amendment Foundation, and California Association of Federal Firearms Licensees.”
