    Florida Gun Range To Serve Booze, Because What Could Go Wrong?
    Getting blasted has a whole new meaning for dumb teabaggers.

    Andy Campbell Crime And Weird News Editor


    Another round of shots, good sir!

    Commissioners in Daytona Beach, Florida, approved a measure Wednesday that will allow the opening of a 12-lane gun range connected to a booze-filled restaurant. Commissioners were "leery" at first, because alcohol and guns don't mix, but they came around to the idea, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal.

    The paper reports:

    I've gone back and forth on this," said Commissioner Pam Woods, who later cast a yes vote.

    "I was leery," echoed Commissioner Patrick Henry, who also supported the business.

    Commissioner Ruth Trager wasn't won over by the new business' developers at the meeting who explained the precautions they'll take, and she cast the lone no vote. She drilled the business partners with questions about how they'll know if someone is sober or a felon.

    They were reportedly swayed by the business' strict rules against shooting after drinking. Everyone who eats or drinks at the restaurant will have to submit to an ID scan, and if they've had alcohol, they won't be allowed to shoot at the range that day, WFTV reports. In addition, guns won't be allowed in the restaurant, though commissioners pointed out that the policy won't stop people with concealed carry licenses from entering.

    Patrons who go to the gun range will also have to sign an affidavit promising they're not drunk.

    But why risk it by allowing booze in the restaurant in the first place? Co-founder Ron Perkinson says the eatery wouldn't be profitable without libations.

    "Safety is obviously key and number one for not only me, but everyone else there. Everything is going to be revolved around safety," he told WFTV.

    He said he would consider installing a metal detector at the restaurant if the commissioners asked for it, but they didn't.

    Volunteer guard at 'Muslim-free' store shoots himself by accident

    An armed member of a volunteer group guarding an Oklahoma gun store that recently declared itself "Muslim-free" has accidentally shot himself, according to local media.

    The Oktaha store, named Save Yourself Survival and Tactical Gear, drew national attention last week when the manager, an Iraqi vet, declared the new policy in response to last month’s deadly shooting at a military recruiting station in Chattanooga, Tenn.

    That doesn't sound like a good idea but it's Florida.

    Lots of gun clubs have bars, but alcohol is never allowed on the range. Irresponsible shooters don't generally go to ranges. I personally don't like it, but because of the bar. ... I love to drink. I don't like it because I think it sends the wrong message to kids. Plus the small part I bothered to read said restaurant/bar ... that could be alot of things.

    they took it away--drunk morons (men and women alike) were getting plunked on the reg

    so sometimes projectiles and alcohol are a silly mix is all i'm saying

    Dumb idea, but I must have missed the part where political affiliation was mentioned.


    And up a 1:20am? No job to go to I guess.

    As I already said, it must suck sitting in a dark room, alone mumbling teabagger all the time.

    I'm a shooter. I can't imagine going to the range drunk. I don't even drink coffee before I go. I want to shoot the best I can each time. If they smell booze on your breath, you would get kicked out where I shoot. think of the liability problem.

    In typical Ving asswipe retard fashion, don't comprehend that if you partake in the restaurant side and drink, you aren't allowed to shoot.

    A drunken gun range full of white people, automatic weapons, caches of ammunition and a place to shoot them is 1000x more safe than Chicago any night of the year.
