JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. - It's a different kind of gun debate in Jacksonville Beach...
"We wish them success. We hope they go somewhere but you can't cram it down the throat of the community," says Steve Kowkabany.
His was of several arguments Monday as the planning commission rejected the proposed indoor gun range on Penman Road.
Many residents pointed to the close proximity to Montessori Tides School--while others raised the issue of property values. Kowkabany says he has twin three-year-old daugthers who attend Montessori Tides and he doesn't want a pistol range near the place they're learning.
Our news partner Action News reports planning commissioners were unanimous is rejecting the pistol range plan.
