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.

The comments on the village FB post: It shouldn't have taken a massacre in a neighboring town to stop this sick project, and I hope all the voters in Mundelein remember who was so eager to build a shooting range in the first place.

 

What in gods green earth does some whack job shooting people have to do with building a range?  These people actually think that building a range will promote more violence.  And then the comments are being too close to a school.  People are going to stop there on their way home from work, pick up a gun and walk to the school with their newly purchased firearm.  Pretty sure that isn't how it happens.

It's the women who suffer when tragedy strikes. More people need to listen and understand. It's time to end women's suffrage.

People are upset about the mass murder. They're also impotent to stop it, so some are desperate to "do something" so they can feel better about it. Psychologically, that's all this is. Definitely nothing to do with rational thought or science. Pure emotion.

 

Social media is a disease that breeds and concentrates stupidity.

That is exactly what they think is going to happen.   Remember, the grocery stores were going to become warzones when two people, each carrying a concealed firearm, reached for the same loaf of bread.
