Gun owners get a discount at pizza shop

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - A Virginia Beach pizza shop owner is showing his support for firearm rights by giving gun owners a 15 percent discount.

The discount is given to anyone who brings a gun or concealed handgun permit to All Around Pizzas and Deli.

Owner Jay Laze tells news media outlets that he'd planned on offering the discount for a limited time. But he says the response has been overwhelming and he might make it permanent.

Since the discount began last Friday, Laze says 80 percent of his customers have brought guns into the pizza shop. He says one customer came in with an AK-47.
Laze is a gun owner and says he's always been a supporter of the right to carry firearms.

1. 15% off if you show your gun

50% off if it's loaded.

100% off if you point it at the guy behind the register...

Isn't that what we normally call a hold-up?

2. If I lived in that town, this would one of the only times I wished

I owned a gun. Mmmmmm...pizza.

15% off isn't that much, but if you can combine it with a coupon, you might get a really sweet deal.

3. I think this is a great idea...

It tells you where all the gun nuts are hanging out, so you can safely eat elsewhere.

7. Wouldn't that be discrimination

against anyone who isn't legally able to own a gun...i.e., felons, etc.?

13. Well, no.

Even though the common understanding about military discounts is that it honors those in military service...which is a nice thing..., the practice actually comes under the First Degree of Price Discrimination Law. That is, that the military salary is realistically less than private sector salary and therefore prevents military from having the "ability" to pay the same price as non-military.

By the way, that's why Senior Discounts aren't illegal.
