The restaurant began offering a ten percent discount a couple of weeks ago for bringing in both your appetite and your gun.
Owner Kevin Cox says the idea started as a way to thank the law enforcement officers that frequent his restaurant, but soon other gun carrying customers began asking for the discount too, and he’s happy to oblige.
Cox says, “I keep hearing so much about people banning guns. Target’s banning guns and these people are banning guns. Don’t they realize that that’s where people with guns are going to go? I want to take the opposite approach. How can I make my place safer?”
“There’s so many people who are trying to take our guns away and the government makes stricter gun laws. They forget that we really do, we’re given the right in the constitution to keep and bear arms,” says local gun owner, Olivia Carambat.
So far, it’s been a hit. Cox says he gives out about 15 to 20 discounts each day.
