Gun retailer Templar Sports' attorney Donald E.J. Kilmer, Jr. said Monday evening's vote by the Los Gatos Town Council to research future gun sales restrictions and a possible moratorium on such businesses won't affect his client.
"That ends the witch-hunt," Kilmer said about the scrutiny the business has endured since opening in December at 611 University Ave.
He also said his client has complied with all local, state and federal laws to open his shop and that "any action they [Council members] take is for future gun stores."
Kilmer also insinuated that a temporary prohibition of such sales in town could be challenged in court. "I don't currently have any clients who want to challenge that [the moratorium], by I imagine I'll be getting phone calls," he said.
The business is also willing to discuss with town officials a voluntary operating agreement in response to community concerns about gun sales in Los Gatos.
Extra police security during the meeting had come at the store's request as Robert Chang, one of the business owners, has told San Jose police that he received a death threat following a Feb. 4 meeting to discuss gun sales in town.
