SPRING GARDEN (WTXF) - Members of Philadelphia's Spring Garden neighborhood gathered together to show they’re against a potential new gun shop.
An existing firearm shop – The Gun Range -- wants to open a new store on N. Percy and Green streets. That’s right off Spring Garden Street.
The owner is trying to get a zoning variance from the state.
Saturday, neighbors, community and faith leaders rallied, saying there’s too much gun violence they don’t need more gun shops in the city.
If the new gun shop gets the proper zoning, it would open at the former site of Colosimo's Gun Center, which federal authorities closed.
