On Monday, November 27, the San Carlos City Council voted 4 to 1 to extend the current moratorium an additional 10 months and 15 days. Vice Mayor Matt Grocott was the lone dissenting vote in this unfair targeting of firearms retailers. With the passage of this moratorium, a new Turner’s Outdoorsman store, that was slated to open soon, will be further delayed while the City decides whether to impose new zoning and use permit requirements on sporting goods stores.
The emergency moratorium and subsequent extension comes after Turner’s Outdoorsman has worked with the City of San Carlos and the Chief of Police to ensure all laws and ordinances were followed. The 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 growing priority to block new gun stores from opening in California through excessive red tape and local ordinances.
