Virginia Pizza Shop Offers Discounts for Gun-owners

The safest pizza you’ll ever eat
February 19, 2013
A Virginia pizza shop is doing its part to uphold the Second Amendment and private gun rights by offering discounts to patrons who present concealed carry permits or visit the eatery possessing visible firearms.According to their website, the All Around Pizza and Deli shop in Virginia Beach is offering a 15 percent discount for customers who “show us you carry openly or show us a concealed weapons permit.”
Pizza shop owner Jay Laze, speaking of the success of his deal, told The Virginian-Pilot , “it’s been awesome.”
Laze estimates that 80 percent of his clientele have taken advantage of the offer, and says he is extending the promotion til the end of March – that is, unless customer demand leads him to implement the discount indefinitely: “it might be permanent if people like it that much.”
Various businesses have realized the absurdity of state and federal governments rushing to demonize virtually all gun-owners in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook tragedy, and several have used the opportunity to send a strong and clear message to legislators seeking to eviscerate the Second Amendment.
A frozen yogurt shop in Utah recently held a similar promotion  calling it “Second Amendment Week” and offered a dollar off for concealed weapons permit holders. Laze says this is where he got the idea for his pizza shop’s promotion.
Last month, a gun range in Liberty Hill, Texas also offered discounts  on firearms training and instruction for educators.
But some companies have not been as accommodating of gun rights advocates.
Last month, we wrote about Internet deal giant Groupon.com canceling a Texas gun shop’s deal  on concealed handgun courses.
According to Central Texas Gun Works owner Michael Cargill, after pressuring him to increase the threshold of his Groupon offer, a representative for Groupon called him back and said that their CEO had “decided to suspend all gun deals, anything having to do with guns, gun training, shooting clays, gun ranges; they suspended all gun deals.”
In an exclusive interview with Infowars, Cargill labeled Groupon’s actions “a direct attack on lawful gun ownership” and called for a boycott of the company, saying it is “an organization that clearly has no respect for those of us who, whether for recreation or personal protection, choose to exercise their constitutional right.”
