    Interesting seeing it's next to a mini-mart that used to get robbed all the time and where an employee was murdered too.

    Sounds like someone is planning a big hunting trip. I just hope what they plan on hunting walks on all fours instead of upright.

    I guess banks don't have "adequate security" either since they get robbed all the time.

    only $2500 to rat out a shady person that you know has at least 19 firearms? good luck with that

    - It's Millbrook Road, not Ave.

    EZee - They haven't opened yet. The grand opening is soon. My guess is not everything was in place yet.

    "In order to get a lic to sell guns a applicant has to show adequate security."- well, from the story, it wasn't "adequate" enough for the advanced criminal that committed the crime :-)
