Hearts And Minds And Stomachs

A Virginia Beach pizzeria shows how the Second Amendment movement is winning mainstreet:

Slice by slice, one Virginia Beach pizza shop is showing its support for the Second Amendment by offering fifteen percent off pies to gun owners.

“All they have to do is show me that they’re carrying a weapon or they can show me their concealed weapons permit and they can get the discount,” says All Around Pizza owner, Jay Laze.

Laze started the offer after a Utah frozen yogurt shop made headlines earlier this month for also giving gun toters discounts.

Note to Minnesota companies: did you see how many people turned out for both gun rallies over the past three weeks?  1,200 on a Saturday at a rally put on by a regular schmo who just wanted to make a difference?  Close to 200 for a Wednesday morning rally that got no promotion and no advertising, and wasn’t even affiliated with a gun group?

You want some of those numbers through your door?

“I thought it was a great idea and I was wondering why nobody here was doing it,” he says. “It should be happening all around the country.”

That reminded me of an “urban renewal” idea I had a few years back.  I may touch on that tomorrow or Wednesday.

  1. Was WDFL showing a secret meeting at the capitol in which only anti-gun activists were invited? The crowd did seem small and there didn’t appear to be any pro-gun advocates there. Of course, the signs carried by these usurpers of the 2nd Amendment, were rife with spelling errors, i.e. “Malitia.”

  2. I remember reading about a restaurant that got sued over something similar. They put a coupon for a discount in a church bulletin. A professionally aggrieved atheist sued them for discrimination saying that the discount only applied to people who went to church, which infringed upon his right to equality and freedom from religion. He lost, and the court said “you don’t HAVE to go to church, you just have to present a church bulletin. Walk in the door, grab one, and walk out.”

    Since there is a higher effort and cost for getting a carry permit, I could see a professionally aggrieved orc pulling the same shenanigans, and this time it would more likely stick.

  3. Pretty sure there is a pizzeria in Virginia Beach that will never, ever, not in a million years be the victim of a robbery.

    Probably a fairly inexpensive option as a security system, as well.

  4. Not sure if they still do it, but I know that most of the SuperAmericas in Mpls and the NW suburbs gave free coffee and donuts/baked goods to uniformed police officers. I know it was not unusual to see a couple New Hope and a couple Crystal squad cars pull into the SA on 36th and Winnetka in New Hope a few years ago.
