There has been some media coverage and controversy about the Governors Gun Club application to serve beverages containing alcohol.  The following is provided to address any public misinformation, fears or concerns.

Governors Gun Club has been granted permission to obtain a serving license in our members lounge.  The lounge is not available to the general public or all club members.  The lounge is only accessed by key cards issued to a limited group of members (Full Metal Jacket Members).  All food and beverage services will be charged to the member’s account allowing tracking of their beverage purchases.  Once a beverage is purchased on the customer’s account, the account is flagged and they cannot be checked into the range that day.  Full Metal Jacket Members who wish to have a drink after shooting have available to them Gun Valet Service. This service allows their firearms to be stored in the facility vault until a later time or future visit.  Additionally, members with the required level of access to the lounge have member lockers available to them.

Georgia Law provides that persons with permits may carry firearms in restaurants and bars that serve alcohol; however, more stringent rules and measures are being implemented in the club.  Service is not available to the general public or all club members, it is only available to a limited group of members.  Members CANNOT drink and shoot, drink then shoot, or drink while in possession of a firearm.  Members have strict contractual rules of their membership privileges that address facility conduct including drinking.  The members lounge is not a bar and will not be used as one.  This is a relaxing social atmosphere for members to enjoy food and limited drinks responsibly.  Irresponsible and excessive drinking will not be tolerated by members, and will not be served by the staff.  Members must be responsible firearm owners and responsible drinkers; otherwise they will not be patrons or members at the facility.

Most of the City Council Members and the Mayor are satisfied with guidelines and measures we are taking to insure a safe environment.  Opposition was from council member Nancy Hudson who votes against ALL alcohol applications.  Two citizens spoke in opposition to the application.  One simply stated that “Alcohol and firearms do not mix.” The second person to speak did not address the application, rather their interpretation and opinion of a specific council member’s comment.

We know that unfortunately not everyone who owns a firearm exercises the necessary responsibility, but most firearm owners recognize and accept the serious obligation and grave responsibility that goes along with gun ownership.  We also know that alcohol can and is often abused by many in society; however, it is unfair for some to assume that everyone who drinks is incapable of exercising personal responsibility and restraint and would choose to make that decision for everyone.

Just to be completely clear on some facts not completely covered in the article. The lounge is only accessed by key card issued to a limited group of members (Full Metal Jacket Members). All food and beverage services will be charged to the member’s account allowing tracking of their beverage purchases. Once a beverage is purchased on the customer’s account, the account is flagged and they cannot be checked into the range that day.

Feel free to email me with any further questions. I will try to respond in a timely matter.

I would like to encourage everyone to follow the patch link and post your support for the membership lounge and our serving license. There are a few people who are trying to demonize alcohol and not just those that abuse it. They want to let the government control every facet of our lives through government bureaucracy. The same type of persons that try to take away our gun rights due to their own beliefs. We need to show by overwhelming comment that it is the person and not the product! Thank you!

In remembrance of the tragedy that unfolded on this day, we should not dwell on the collapse of steel and stone but the rise of American resolution and perseverance.

Please take a moment to reflect on the many individuals and the families who’s lives it’s touched.

We need to come together and remember the people, just like you and I, who lost their lives that fateful morning…

…without their memories, our efforts would be in vain.

We need to honor those that laid down their lives in the line of duty- those that ran towards the face of danger instead of from it…

…without their heroic efforts and sacrifice, many more would’ve perished.

We need to thank the men and women that continue to serve both at home and abroad…

…without their courage and servitude we would not be able to overcome and prove to the world that we will prevail no matter what.

Let’s all try to support and give thanks to our civil servants today for all that they do in the name of a “days work” and let us all never forget 9/11.
