File this under “What Could Possibly Go Wrong?” and “Only In Texas.” Boston.com reports that a Texas agency is looking to legalize alcohol sales at gun shows that meet certain requirements. Similar attempts to mix alcohol and guns have been made in the past, so this is just part of a growing trend among ammosexuals.
The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission announced the proposal Friday, and will hold a 30-day public commenting period before any rules are enacted. The agency spokeswoman, Carolyn Beck, said that an area gun club in Dallas-Fort Worth asked for the change, but she didn’t know who the club was.
According to the proposal, firearms must be disabled and not readily convertible for use, and sold firearms couldn’t be delivered inside of the building, while alcohol is sold. Live ammunition is not allowed, either. Under current rules, if the gun show is held at a venue licensed to sell alcohol, drink sales and consumption are suspended during the time it takes to set up, conduct, and dismantle the gun show.
