    CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - The Illinois gun shop where a man bought weapons before shooting to death five students at Northern Illinois University has closed.

    A Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives special agent says the owner of Tony's Guns and Ammo in Champaign gave up his federal gun dealer's license this week and closed the shop.

    Steven Kazmierczak (kaz-MUR'-chehk) legally bought handguns and a shotgun at the shop before killing the students at Northern Illinois. He eventually committed suicide.

    Sad for the guy - I'm sure that's a heck of a burden even if it was a perfectly legal sale. Too bad he couldn't close for a month and see how much support he had first.

    So you're not familiar with Red's Trading Post of Twin Falls, Idaho. G00gle about it a bit. Read the linked post on the Wisconsin sub-forum, does that sound like he was ready to 'go out of business'?

    I'm not sure why you're tying this to Red's, did my favorite Federal agency pressure him to quit?
