The recession didn't put a dent in gun sales at the New Melle Gun Shop. The single-story building behind McClelland's home averages between 600 and 700 gun sales annually, mostly handguns, a pace that has stayed steady even during tough economic times.
Now, though, McClelland and her two employees face the permanent closure of her business after her license to sell firearms was revoked because of record-keeping and reporting lapses spanning many years, according to federal officials.
A judge in the case affirmed the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' license revocation this week. The store is among the less than one percent of more than 10,000 gun stores inspected annually in the nation to have their licenses revoked.
