Sturtevant trustees on May 20 will vote on whether or not to approve a new gun shop on Wisconsin Street. Jonathan Hennegan is grew up in Racine and served in the U.S. Marine Corps in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He is looking to open a gun store – Chambered – at 1630 N. Wisconsin Street,  a story in The Journal Times reads. The village Planning Commission voted unanimously Thursday to recommend Hennegan’s venture to the village board as long as he has an alarm system; all doors and windows are secure and reinforced; unaccompanied minors not be allowed in the store; that firearms not be discharged on the premises; and that alcohol not be present. Hennegan told commission members he will also have video surveillance and will lock his inventory every night in a safe. In addition to a nod from Sturtevant trustees, Hennegan also need approval from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; and the FBI.
