Casino Shooting Range Plans Pulled

Plans to build a gun store and shooting range at a mall inside a Strip casino have been scrapped for now.

Phase II Mall Subsidiary withdrew its application for a permit to operate a sporting goods, firearm sales and recreational facility from the Clark County Commission Wednesday. Gun maker Beretta was behind the effort.

The plan originally called for the facility to be built inside the Shoppes at the Palazzo.

There is no word on whether the company plans to resubmit the proposal.
