Construction have begun on an indoor shooting range in Georgia. That's not what's newsworthy. This is -- the facility has been granted a liquor license.
Kristina Brown runs the Lakeside Guns Shop in Powder Springs, GA. She, along with her husband, got approval from the town council to to build the Governor's Gun Club. Then the council approved the liquor license with a 4-1 vote, bringing marksmen and Maker's Mark together.
For those wondering, Georgia's gun laws go something like this -- for the general populous, if you are legally cleared to own a gun, you can carry it in your home, vehicle, or place of business without a concealed carry permit. This does not extend to government buildings and other exceptions that make you say, "DUH!" Bars? It's up to the owner of the place whether or not you can pack heat, the state keeps its hands off.
The dirt: the facility will cost $3.1 mil to build, and will be just 100 yards from a new housing subdivision going up. Brown, realizing that maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe some people might find this a smidge worrisome, is emphasizing that, once someone orders a drink, they will not be permitted in the firing range for the rest of the day.
I can see no way in which this carefully thought out plan could possibly fail....
