What's with all the outrage?

I've always been an entrepreneurial sort. In chatting with my friend and neighbor Joe, I came to find out that he too has a bug to own his own business. As a West Point grad and someone who has an affinity for guns, Joe suggested we open a gun club.

The next step in the process was to determine a location for said firearms business. Well, as luck would have it, we both have connections in the Denver area. In fact, we were led to Littleton, CO, a suburb just south of Denver. However, people began to raise a stink because we decided to lease building space a mere 2-3 blocks from Columbine High School. Yes, I realize the horrific tragedy which took place there in April of 1999. But the second amendment clearly states "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." So why should the actions of extremists prevent us from exercising our Constitutional rights?

Can someone help me out here?

The same reason a community center can't be built in Manhattan?
