Many of us have become aware of plans to open a gun shop in West Rehoboth. While we recognize this is a permitted use in a commercial location, we feel that the presence of a business selling guns and ammunition will most likely have serious negative effects, including increased gun violence and crime.
West Rehoboth is on the verge of an unparalleled revitalization. New homes are being built and existing ones improved, the neighborhood is being cleaned up, and businesses are expressing interest in the area again. Members of CAMP Rehoboth have been active partners in this revitalization, with volunteers providing programs for West Rehoboth children and financial assistance to deserving organizations and efforts that are bringing about this revitalization.
Several of us have signed a petition, asking Attorney General Beau Biden to take any measures he can to block the proposed gun shop. Please stop by CAMP Rehoboth to sign the petition and join us speaking out against the gun shop.
