Bloomington Passes Ordinance Restricting Gun Shop Locations

November 21, 2016 10:25 PM

On Monday, the Bloomington City Council approved an ordinance that restricts areas where gun shops are allowed in relation to residential neighborhoods, schools and day care centers. 

It requires new gun shops to have separation from residential areas and be at least 250 feet away from schools and day care centers. 


Many opponents argue the ordinance would hurt business and hinder Second Amendment rights.

But many council members said they view it as a land-use issue and point to other restrictions on pawn shops and liquor stores.
