(Las Vegas, NV)  —  Legal representatives for The Venetian have filed an appeal against the Clark County Planning Commission’s decision last week to allow a gun store and range to move into the Shoppes at Palazzo Mall.

Vice president and legal counsel for The Venetian, Fred Kraus, testified before the commission last week that a gun store next to their casino would be a “tragedy waiting to happen.”  The commission ultimately granted the permit to the Beretta gun store.

The Venetian’s appeal will now bring the issue before the board of county commissioners.
