California: San Carlos City Council Now Considering Blocking New Turner’s Outdoorsman Store from Opening after Months of Approvals

California: San Carlos City Council Now Considering Blocking New Turner’s Outdoorsman Store from Opening after Months of Approvals

The San Carlos City Council has placed on its agenda (starting on page 608) for Monday, November 13th, City Council meeting, an urgency ordinance to consider imposing a moratorium to block new gun stores from opening in the City.  If the City Council passes the moratorium, a new Turner’s Outdoorsman store, with a mid-November planned opening, would be prohibited from proceeding until the City decides whether to impose new zoning and use permit requirements on sporting goods stores.  This last-minute attack by the City comes after months of Turner’s Outdoorsman responsibly working with the City of San Carlos and the City Police Chief, and after Turner’s Outdoorsman has invested significant time, money, and resources to bring the store to opening day readiness. 

This attempt to block the opening of the new Turner’s Outdoorsman store and other firearm retailers has been driven by the gun-ban lobby. It has become a priority to block new gun stores from opening in California through excessive red tape and local ordinances. 

The City Council is scheduled to discuss the matter during its November 13 meeting.  The meeting will be held at 7:00pm in the San Carlos City Hall, located at 600 Elm Street, San Carlos, CA 94070.  We encourage all of our members who are able to attend this meeting to do so and voice their opposition.  We also need emails and calls made to the City Clerk and City Council members, before the public meeting, showing the great opposition to these actions against legitimate sporting goods retailers.  Comments may be submitted to:
