The Powder Springs City Council last week voted 3-2 to grant an alcohol license to the Governor's Gun Club, being built at the corner of C.H. James Parkway and Sterlingbrooke Drive.
The vote has grabbed local and national attention, and caused debates on safety and whether possible risks outweigh offering members the option to drink.
The small selection of alcohol would be served during the hours allowed by Powder Springs law and in a lounge secured with a special key given just to members. The only people under 21 who could enter are the children of members, and they wouldn’t be allowed to drink.
Guns would not be permitted in the lounge, and once inside, customers couldn’t return to the shooting range. A gun valet system with lockers will be available, but customers could still exit the building with their weapons.
