nooooooo, this is like "there are too many accidents so we're going to do the right checks (eyesight, sign recognition, etc.) on the person before we issue a new license" it appears in the past that there were not comprehensive background checks (like checking eyesight to follow your driving license example) on the establishments before issuing liquor permits, which i believe should be standard due diligence.
having first hand experience of the fights and drunks that flood the downtown streets on weekend nights, i agree that something needs to be done. this may not be the final solution but it's a step towards a solution.
