City attorney Louis Leonatti said that whether the company is manufacturing or repurposing ammunition, it’s not allowed in a commercial zone. They would be allowed to sell ammo in Mexico but not make it there. Leonatti says that he has not been contacted by the company or an attorney representing them. “Why have we never been cited by the city? Why is this never been brought to our attention before we received a letter of we’re not renewing your business license? We want to know these answers. We’ve asked these questions and instead of answering the questions, they dodge them completely,” Johnson said.
“I asked them if they have an attorney, if they have an attorney to contact us. We’d be glad to talk to them. But repurposing is not permitted in a commercial district,” Leonatti said. The owners of the arms business say they don’t manufacture ammunition but repurpose used casings. CEO Will Johnson claims the city has been contradictory in their communication and dodged their questions.
