Owners of a Georgia gun shop have received the go-ahead from local officials to serve alcohol at a proposed indoor firing range, riling one neighbor who says booze with bullets is a bad mix.
Kristina Brown and her husband own the Lakeside Guns Shop in Acworth, Ga., and are building a $3.5 million gun range in nearby Powder Springs, north of downtown Atlanta, according to WSB-TV in Atlanta.
The Powder Springs City Council voted 4-1 Monday to approve their application for a permit to serve alcohol in a lounge at The Governor’s Club, according to WSB-TV.
Brown’s new business plan has upset at least one area resident.
“I mean, that’s just stupid,” Traci Hart, a mother of three, told WSBT. “We don’t need drunk people running around in and out of the neighborhood.”
rown said Georgia law now allows people with gun permits to carry firearms into businesses that serve alcohol. She noted that her gun club is “taking it even a step further,” according to WSB-TV.
Governor’s Club customers who order alcoholic beverages at the bar will have their identification flagged and won’t be allowed to return to the firing range, Brown told WSB-TV.
