Guns Are Us, a new gun store, has opened in downtown Addison in Steuben County.
The store is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. on Sunday.
Long guns, ammunition, accessories, and fishing supplies can be found at the new store.
A background check needs to be passed as well as valid identification to purchase a gun.
Proper identification has been an issue for the store because proper ID must have the person’s middle name spelled out entirely. If a license only has a middle initial, then a birth certificate with the entire name is needed.
Owner, Brian Colburn, stated that Steuben County is a big hunting area, and after his friends struggled to find ammo, he figured the area needed more access for hunting supplies.
