    An emotional debate about guns and gun sales in Los Gatos took an ugly turn.

    The owner of Templar Sports said he found a death threat at his home in San Jose Tuesday night.

    Robert Chang's attorney, Don Kilmer, said his client is alarmed.

    "The threat identified Robert as the owner of a gun store in Los Gatos," he said.

    San Jose police are investigating and Kilmer says he alerted Los Gatos-Monte Sereno police.

    The Town Council is scheduled to continue the gun debate at a special meeting Monday night.

    Kilmer is suggesting the meeting be delayed. "I suggested they delay Monday's meeting to give police a chance to take whatever security measures they want to."

    Kilmer added that Chang is taking extra security precautions.
