Those will be official venues, no worries.
But with such clubs and discos blocked doors, too many visitors, etc. happens all the time, no idea why that is, seems to be a global phenomenon, there have been accidents like that in many countries...

Maybe the inverse argument should be that night clubs don't kill, people do, so everyone should have a nightclub.

Sometimes, when reading this forum, I can't help but be astounded by the raging idiocy that permeates such threads.

A fire breaks out in a nightclub and hundreds of people die. The fire was caused by an accident and not on purpose. Yet, somehow, somebody, somewhere will try to exploit this accidental tragedy and use it to argue that accidental deaths in a nightclub fire should either result in the banning of nightclubs or the banning of flares. Not in earnest, though, but rather all in an attempt to draw similarities between banning something (and it really doesn't matter what as long as it was present during a tragedy) and the argument that some guns should be banned.

Obviously, this is a rather dimwitted comparison. Last I checked, school killings are NOT accidents, now are they? Or did Adam Lanza accidentally pull the trigger and spray bullets into a bunch of kids?

You see, for your stupid comparison to work, this would have to be the case...

Guns nuts are creepy hypocritical people.
