What doesn’t Daytona Beach, Florida (America’s cultural capital) have to offer? If you said a gun range where you can shoot and get fucked up, you would now be wrong.
On Wednesday evening, city commissioners approved a proposal from a group seeking to combine fine dining, booze, and guns, despite objections that the establishment wouldn’t be able to determine if a customer was a felon or an alcoholic.
“As you enter, we will be checking guns, firearms as you come in and out,” said Ron Perkinson, the brain behind the terrifying 55,000-square foot operation. “If they’re renting a handgun, or if they were bringing their own, they would do the paperwork, scan their ID.”
“[Employees] will be trained to visually look at the person, look at their eyes, look at their pupils, just like an officer would.”
WKMG reports on the rules that would keep people from accidentally murdering each other:
- A computer system will track who has been drinking.
- If you drink, you can’t shoot for 24 hours.
- If anyone in your group drinks, none can shoot.
- There’s a three-drink limit for all customers.
“To the critics, I say, you’re right,” Perkinson continued. “I’m not trying to mix the two. I’m trying to give you a nice meal before you go home. If you choose to have an alcoholic beverage and go home, that’s on you. It’s no different than them leaving here and going to Outback.”
