A gun store and shooting range that markets itself as the "largest firearms dealer in Northern California" has applied to open new store in Dublin.

According to city records, William and Travis Morgan, owners of "Guns, Fishing, and Other Stuff"  in Vacaville, filed a Minor Use Permit in December 2013 with the City of Dublin for an "Indoor Recreational Facility (indoor shooting range)" at 6705 Amador Plaza Road.

City spokesperson Jacqui Diaz says the application, which only addresses parking for the store, will go before the Planning Commission on Feb. 11.

"The Community Development Director has referred the application to the Planning Commission for consideration," Diaz says. "They will be considering only the parking standard for the consideration of the Indoor Shooting Range, not the use itself."

The Vacaville location sells guns, ammunition, hunting and fishing gear and offers gun safety and hunting education courses for gun enthusiasts.
William and Travis Morgan have not yet been reached for comment.

The store would be the first of its kind in the area. There are public shooting ranges in Castro Valley, San Leandro and Livermore.

The city will welcome most if not all businesses that generate a solid tax base.

An indoor range would be great besides for it stealing some business from the outdoor range in Livermore. People who are "concerned" about it should be glad that gun owners in their area are practicing gun safety vs just buying a gun and bullets w/o learning how to use them. Gun ranges provide a safe place for people to learn and practice gun safety. This is good.

Guns don't kill people, police kill people. At least they will always be armed( to the teeth).
