Knowledgeable staff helps clients at Second Amendment


Gun shop is located on Van Voorhis Road


Whether looking to purchase a hunting rifle or cleaning kit, Second Amendment Sports and Defense LLC offers the selection and guidance to make the right purchase.

“I would recommend it for anyone,” said customer Keith Bowers, who has been coming to the store for two years. Bowers spoke highly of Greg Gutta Jr. “This place has a great atmosphere and Greg is extremely helpful and very knowledgeable on all things guns.”

Second Amendment first opened its doors in Au g u s t 2010. Last week, the shop relocated to a different suite within the same plaza, offering more space to display the shop’s expanded inventory.

“People buy firearms for a lot of different reasons,” Gutta said. “Some might want a gun for home defense. Some buy them for competitive shooting and others might just want one to go plinking at the range and learn a skill, something to do on a Saturday.”

Second Amendment offers a vast selection of not only firearms but also targets, cleaning kits, accessories, Tasers, safes, security alarms and pepper spray.

“Ninety percent of the products we sell here you can’t get at Walmart,” Gutta Jr. said.

Still there are challenges. Gutta Jr. said staying competitive in firearms retail can be difficult because the prices have to be kept low. He said there are also more compliance checks and regulation than in other industries. “Plus a firearm isn’t the first thing people spend their paychecks on like food or clothes. A lot of times they have to save up.”

Gutta said he enjoys the challenges of running his own business and of helping his customers find the right thing they’re looking for.

“There was a tricked out .308 rifle that I looked for over a year and he helped me find it,” Bowers said. “That’s what sets him apart.”

Gutta runs Second Amendment with the help of his wife, Christen, and father, Greg Gutta Sr. 

“He built this business from the ground up,” Greg Gutta Sr. said. “There aren’t a lot of businesses out there still run by families, like the days where you went to the pharmacy and got to know your pharmacist.”

The store also offers discounts to military veterans and law enforcement personnel Gutta said Second Amendment is also overstocked on certain items, such as hunting rifles and will have a sale running until April 12.
