Daytona Beach, Florida commissioners approved a combination 12-lane indoor gun range and restaurant, that serves alcohol, to open in the city.
Owners Ron Perkinson and Edward Staudt say they have a plan to prevent drunk gunplay. From the Daytona Beach News-Journal:
If a restaurant customer orders an alcoholic beverage, his or her driver's license will be scanned by staff along with the licenses of everyone else at their table.
If the person drinking wanted to go to the gun range after eating, his or her license would be scanned again and the customer would be flagged as someone blocked from shooting because of the alcohol sale.
(Perkinson) said he'll keep a watch list for customers who could be trouble and he'll contact police when necessary. Perkinson said he'll also have access to a Florida Department of Law Enforcement database.
