Duck: Liquor License Approved At A New Georgia Gun Range!

Written by DeShawn McQueen on Tuesday, 02 October 2012. Posted in Breaking News, Alcohol

alcohol at gun ranges

It defies the imagination, but it is true. The Powder Springs, Georgia city council approved a liquor license for an aptly titled shooting range, the Governor’s Gun Club.

That is just what we need; people with guns drinking alcohol.

Although owners Bert and Kristina Brown claim that individuals who have had a drink of alcohol will not be allowed access to firearms, what about the “inevitable” isolated cases that might get access?!

Or, what about the crazed lunatic with a gun that will now have access to firearms and alcohol, conveniently under one roof.

It is quite clear that neither the new owners nor the city council of Powder Springs is concerned about those possibilities, as they approved the license for the shooting range to serve alcohol.

According to a spokesperson for the National Shooting Range Sports Association, there are a total of 7,000 shooting ranges in its database, and less than a handful serve alcohol.

Clearly the overwhelming majority of shooting ranges think that alcohol and gun ranges do not co-exist very well.

So, what makes Bert and Kristina Brown think serving alcohol at their new 3.5 million shooting range facility is worth the risk in proving otherwise?

Alcohol at a gun range! Alcohol at Starbucks! Alcohol at Disney World! What will enterprising Americans come up with next?

Let us know what you think.
