Virginia Pizza Shop Offers a Discount to Anyone Who Carries a Gun

What could go wrong?

At one Virginia pizza shop, customers who  bring in a gun or show a gun permit get 15 percent off their order. The pro-gun owner of All Around Pizzas and Deli claimed that 80 percent of his customers have walked in carrying a gun since he offered the discount last week, including one carrying an AK-47. “It’s been awesome,” the owner, Jay Laze, said.

All Around Pizzas isn’t the only business encouraging customers to tote guns two months after the Newtown shooting. Earlier this month, a Utah ice cream business offered concealed carry permit-holders  $1 off of their ice cream.

Thanks to Virginia’s open carry laws, customers can not only enjoy their pizza next to a gun, but they can also go to the  bank, hospital, store, and a bar with firearms.
