While the anti-gun bullies of Moms Demand Action continue trying to harass businesses into banning the lawful carry of firearms, one popular restaurant in Louisiana is going to opposite route, and is doing booming business thanks to their pro-gun discount:
Bergeron’s Restaurant off Lobdell Highway in Port Allen is known for it’s cajun cooking, but recently they’ve been getting a lot of attention for something that doesn’t have anything to do with their food. The restaurant is offering a discount, but it’s far from typical.
“I just need to see a weapon. I need you to be carrying a gun,” says Bergeron’s owner Kevin Cox.
That’s right. The restaurant began offering a 10% discount a couple of weeks ago, for bringing in both your appetite and your gun.
“As long as everybody has a gun we’re all the same size,” says Cox.
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.
“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?”
Bergeron’s Restaurant is part of a wave of more than 57,000 pro-gun businesses that have cropped up in recent years as concealed carry rights have expanded across the United States.
