Bullets and Booze — A Good Mix?

A Powder Springs gun shop plans to open a firing range that serves alcohol.

As the Huffington Post reports, “Bullets and booze: What could go wrong?” Some people have their concerns.

A few days ago, Governor’s Club gun shop in Power Springs, Ga. received approval from the city council to open a firing range - and to serve alcohol in the gun club. According to WSBTV, the owner said the idea is not all that controversial since under Georgia law gun owners can take their guns into restaurants. The range is preportedly instituting safety measures, such as not allowing a patron to return to the range once he or she has ordered a drink.

So what do you think? Are bullets and booze a mix?

I think it's a great idea. Go shooting with your buddies, then relax with a couple beers. I don't see the problem.

I thought South West Atlanta already did this-killing of the day news. Are they going to have a strip club moving next door too! Of course a day care down the street would be interesting, now that the parent is drunk, with a gun, driving and picking up their kids. Cars and booze is bad enough-please not guns. Their or in the field-booze doesn't mix with shooting or fishing.

John B, I said "they should let you smoke weed".

Okay, folks. First comment deleted for making personal attacks. I'm going to ask everyone to keep it civil. Most people are doing so, and I thank you. Some folks are skating the line, and I'll ask you to disagree in a respectful manner. Don't insinuate that someone is stupid just because you differ on this issue.
