Ala GOP Plans Election Night Party at Gun Range

Alabama Republicans are holding their election night party at a gun range, where participants will be able to shoot a few rounds as returns come in.


The state Republican Party is inviting supporters to the 52,000-square-foot Hoover Tactical Firearms for a "victory party" Tuesday night.

The suburban Birmingham business sells firearms, and it has ranges where people can shoot their own guns or firearms that are available for rent.


A party announcement says the shooting ranges will be available for two hours during the election event. There will also be a band and an appearance by Miss Alabama.


Loaded guns will be allowed only on the firing range, and a party spokeswoman says drinking won't be allowed while people are shooting.


Republicans are expecting Mitt Romney to easily carry Alabama.
