Sunnyvale gun store opens near schools

U.S. Firearms became Sunnyvale’s first dedicated gun store in 20 years, drawing the ire of many nearby residents and parents.

The business, permitted under the city’s zoning codes, is less than a mile from two elementary schools and a preschool. While the business owner began applying for permits in December, neighbors were caught off-guard — only discovering the store’s existence when the building’s marquee was unveiled three weeks ago.
