After being robbed Saturday night, a restaurant owner in Indianapolis, Ind., is offering a 25 percent discount to customers who can show a concealed-carry permit. According to employees, a man in his 20s first placed an order, then returned to the counter claiming to have a gun and demanding the cash register be opened.
“We’re not saying, ‘Show us your gun.’ But if you’re a legal and stable carrier of a concealed-carry license, I’m going to reward that,” said restaurant owner Art Bouvier. “To me, it’s common sense. And until further notice, you’ll get 25 percent off your bill.” He announced the offer on his Facebook page after learning of the robbery Saturday night, saying, “If thugs are going to come in and threaten OUR extended family with guns, you’d better believe I will use every trick I know to protect (our family).” By 1 p.m. Sunday, the post had more than 1,000 likes.
