Black Flag Posted July 12, 2022 at 01:37 AM Share Posted July 12, 2022 at 01:37 AM https://www.dailyherald.com/business/20220711/citing-mass-shootings-developer-scraps-plan-for-shooting-range-gun-store-in-mundelein Citing recent mass shootings, a suburban real estate developer has scuttled a controversial plan to build a gun store and shooting range in Mundelein. The violence at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, that left 19 students and two teachers dead was the primary factor for the about-face, said Scott Gendell, president of Wilmette-based Terraco Real Estate. Maxon Shooter's Supplies, which operates in Des Plaines, wanted to build a second store on vacant land at 320 Townline Road. The site is just west of a Salvation Army store and donation center and near an indoor baseball training facility. Maxon owner Dan Eldridge publicly unveiled the plan in May, two weeks before the Uvalde massacre. At the time, Mayor Steve Lentz and trustees said they liked the proposal but took no formal action.
