ENFIELD, Conn. (AP/WGGB) — Two Republican members of Enfield’s Board of Education are planning to open a gun store.

The Journal Inquirer of Manchester reports board members Tom Sirard and Kevin Fealy along with a third man, Michael Brennan, plan to open the store, called “A Call to Arms” on Memorial Day weekend.

Sirard told the newspaper he understands the timing appears awkward, coming five months after the fatal shootings at the Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, but says the decision had nothing to do with that tragedy. He says plans for the store have been in the works for two years.

ABC40 caught up with Sirard as well and he told us, “This is all a business venture for Enfield, and for us in Enfield. ¬†That’s all secondary stuff. I’ve said it earlier today, the one thing that ties it all together is the word ‘gun’.”

He says the store will sell handguns, long guns, ammunition, and accessories and will have a section dedicated to products made in the U.S. It will not include a range.
