Jackson Guns and Ammo Shop in Henrietta closed its doors last week after the owner decided it was too difficult to continue business under New York state's gun regulations.
Kordell Jackson ran his gun shop out of two locations in Henrietta and Scottsville, and had a large following of firearm owners on the south side of Rochester. The closure was in Jackson's mind for months, he said. He closed the Scottsville location on Jan. 1, and the Henrietta location on Jan. 17.
"The SAFE Act killed us in terms of business," he said. "It was very difficult with sales and regulations with transferring and obtaining firearms, so I decided to close up."
