Some of the folks in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin, are not happy with a new gun store that opened its doors on main street recently, reports CBS Minnesota.
Apparently, the members of the community are not upset about the fact that the business sells firearms but rather over the name of the gun store, “F-Bomb Ordnance,” which is prominently displayed in the windows.
“It really stands out in big block letters,” said St. Croix Falls Mayor Brian Blesi.
Blesi added that around 50 people showed up to complain about the signage last week.
“To me that phrase means only one thing, and I think that’s the majority sentiment here in the community,” Blesi said.
The city council is reviewing whether the name of the store violates the city’s nuisance ordinance.
“The question is, ‘Can that be displayed prominently on our main street?’ and so that’s the question really in front of the city council,” Blesi said.
However, the owners of F-Bomb Ordnance — all of who either served in the military or in law enforcement — said they did not mean to cause a stir.
“We’ve moved into a new building and that’s aroused the ire of some concerned citizens in town,” said co-owner Dr. Geoff Gorres, who explained they relocated from Amery, Wisconsin.
“We would just like to have our constitutional rights respected,” Gorres added. “We didn’t intend to cause a furor or offend anyone.”
