City approves home-based firearms business

October 30, 2012

By Staff

City planners approved a home-based firearms business in downtown Issaquah on Oct. 12, despite concerns from neighbors.

The municipal Development Services Department OK’d a permit for Michael Marinos, a longtime Issaquah resident, to open the business in the Olde Town neighborhood south of East Sunset Way.

Marinos created Bigg Dogg Firearms to offer federally licensed firearms transfers to customers purchasing weapons online. Customers could then stop at Marinos’ home-based business to pick up the firearms.

The city code allows home-based businesses, and does not limit firearms businesses in Olde Town.

Only Marinos, as the licensee to handle firearms transfers, can complete the transactions, and he said he does not plan for firearms deliveries to occur when he is not at home. The conditions outlined in the permit also prevent ammunition sales at the business.

    Of course the city approved this. Issaquah lost it’s moral, ethical compass quite awhile ago. Now it is all about blights on the landscape and anything goes businesses. Issaquah had to grow but there needed some wiser and stronger leadership. And no that does not mean a Chamber of Commerce/skip Rowley manipulated city council. I hope Issaquah finds her way soon before it is too late.
