County pulls ol' switcheroo to kill gun shop?
“The facts in this case are outrageous,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb. “In the fall of 2010, Gamaza, Nobriga and Teixeira formed a business partnership with the intention of opening a gun store in Alameda County. When they began the process of getting permits to open their shop, they were advised of a requirement that gun stores not be located within 500 feet of any school, liquor store or residence.”
He said they carefully measured and found the location they had picked for their plans was “well beyond the 500-foot limit.”
However, “Then the county changed the measurement requirements,” he said.
The lawsuit explains the county also allowed an objection to the shop to be filed even though the deadline had passed, and even though the West County Board of Zoning Adjustments had voted to approve a conditional use permit and allow the gun store to operate.
