If you did a double take, too, then we’re probably on the same page. And yes, you heard me correctly. Virginia Beach’s All Around Pizza and Deli is offering a generous 15% discount to anyone who whips out a concealed handgun permit or just, you know, any old concealed weapon.
<a href="According to restaurant owner Jay Laze, roughly 80% of his customers have taken advantage of this gun-toting supersaver opportunity. That’s including one delightful gentleman who apparently brought in his AK-47. No biggie!
The NRA already offers discounts to its members, who can save big bucks at hotels like Wyndham and Best Western. It appears that the institution’s incentivizing tactics have trickled down to small business owners like Laze.
The ambitious Second Amendment activist is certainly pleased with the promotion’s success; Laze has already extended the offer for an additional month and says he’s considering making it available indefinitely. With a menu touting “HOMEMADE DOUGH – ZESTY SAUCE – 7-CHEESE BLEND FRESH – MADE TO ORDER” pies, ranging from $6.99-$14.99 ($2 for extra toppings), it’s clearly a pretty unbeatable deal.
Anyone up in arms? Sorry. I couldn’t resist.
