SUWANEE, GA -- Two Suwanee parents say they will pull their elementary-aged children out of a local daycare and preschool when a new gun range opens up across the street from it.
"My kids will not come to the daycare after this as soon as the doors open," said Jodi Groth.
But whether they like it or not, construction is underway on the Johns Creek Indoor Gun range on McGinnis Ferry Road in Suwanee. It's going in on a corner next to a Korean Church and a daycare center. The daycare center declined comment, and asked not to be named in this story.
County ordinances allow the business to go in on the commercially zoned land. But they also say outside the range, guns will stay unloaded and never leave their cases. The walls will also be heavily fortified to prevent any rounds from leaving the range.
After the shooting in Connecticut, that's not enough for these parents.
