WOODS CROSS, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) - A Woods Cross homeowner is now one step closer to selling guns from inside his home. Tuesday night Woods Cross city leaders okayed a permit for the homeowner to turn his house into a gun store.
If you're looking to buy a gun soon you can start purchasing them from inside a home near 1300 S. and 1300 W. in Woods Cross.
"All in favor say "Aye". "Aye". All opposed? (No response). It carries," said members of the Woods Cross Planning Commission.
Wednesday night during a public meeting, the Woods Cross Planning Commission approved a permit for Tyler Murri to start selling firearms from his home.
"It's kind of good news," said Tyler Murri, plans to sell guns from his home.
But what's good news for Murri is getting mix reaction from his neighbors.
"I don't want a gun store across the street from me," said Jim Gunnuscio, neighbor opposed to Murri selling guns.
"If somebody can do a salon in their home, they should be able to do firearms out of their home, to me there's no difference," said Tim Smith, supports Murri selling guns.
Some neighbors Reporter Brian Carlson talked to are worried it could make it unsafe for kids on their street; others are concerned it will ruin the resale value of their homes.
"Say Tyler's Gun Shop pops up two doors down from my house, is someone less willing to buy my house?" said Todd Hanna, neighbor opposed to Murri selling guns.
"I'd be more concerned about having a pedophile like two doors down, and hurt my home values versus having a gun business in my house," said Joe Lee, supports Murri selling guns.
As to why Murri wants to sell guns from his home, he won't say.
"Why is this something you want to do?" asked Reporter Brian Carlson.
"Why is this something I want to do? That's a personal thing that I don't want to talk about," said Murri.
But Murri does tell Carlson he understands people's concerns and promises to take all the necessary gun precautions to keep the neighborhood happy.
"Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and I get that, but like the last guy said I think it comes from a lack of education," said Murri.
Although Murri got approval for a permit Tuesday night, he can't start selling guns just yet. He tells Carlson he's waiting on getting a federal license. From what he's told that could happen as early as one month from now.
