A mid-state gun shop owner isn’t backing down Thursday, after his company logo was shot down by his son’s Little League team.

Gabe Wren, owner of Northside Gun Shop in Columbia, is a veteran who helps others who have served through his gun shop and other efforts.

“I have a 7- and a 4-year-old boy and girl and they both love sports, as I did growing up,” Wren said. “They said they wanted to play baseball with the Lions Club in Spring Hill. So, we went down there and the opportunity came up for us to sponsor a team.”

Wren says he told the club what business he owned.

“Northside Gun Shop, and they said, ‘Thank you,’ and took the check and said I could sponsor a team,” Wren said. “Then I was notified as of today that my logo, because it displays a gun, that it wasn’t going to be appropriate and it may offend people.”
