Gun store may open near school
KINGSPORT, Tenn. -

A gun store is one step closer to being able to open in Kingsport, Tennessee across the road from an elementary school.

Freedom Firearms is located on West Stone Drive, about 100 yards from Andrew Jackson Elementary.

The Kingsport Mayor and Aldermen voted Tuesday night to pass the first reading, moving zone boundary lines 30 feet to include the new store. The motion must pass at a second reading in two weeks to go through.

The owner of  Freedom Firearms says he's done everything by the book and looks forward to opening.
