DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Daytona Beach city commissioners have given approval to an indoor shooting range that will include a restaurant that sells alcoholic beverages.

Commissioners raised safety concerns over the mix of alcohol and guns on the same property before voting on the measure on Wednesday night.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal (https://bit.ly/1E6M1Q0 ) reports Commissioner Ruth Trager was the lone holdout as the questioned the developers about how they’ll know whether someone is sober or a felon.

Ron Perkinson told commissioner the group plans to turn the vacant building into an upscale restaurant, not a bar. But he says he needs alcohol sales to make the restaurant profitable. He told commissioners he’ll keep a watch list of customers who may cause trouble and will call police when necessary.
