Many are embracing a new business willing to invest in the community and welcome the increased traffic the store will bring, Others have concerns regarding the possible location of the new gun store, with it being less than a mile from Grand Blanc High School.

"It still boggles my mind weed shops, which can be used for medical reasons, strip clubs and liquor stores can't be within a range of school, but this can", one resident wrote in a Grand Blanc group.

The new store is scheduled to be open 7 days a week and provides a variety of services from new/used gun sales, accessories, and ammunition, cerakoting, consignments, custom builds, disposal of unsafe or unwanted guns.
