The only gun store in San Francisco could lose its permit to sell weapons.
Antigun advocates are expected to attend a Wednesday hearing and ask authorities to deny a permit to High Bridge Arms, which has operated for five decades on Mission Street.
Gun store manager Steven Alcairo is asking the Police Department to reinstate a use permit that lapsed in January because the gun store’s owner was planning to convert the location into office space.
The city denied the office proposal and the owner decided to continue gun store operations.
The San Francisco Chronicle says police permit officers can approve the store’s request to resume selling guns, deny it, or send the matter to police Chief George Gascon for review and possible Board of Supervisors action.
