best idea.

Really? You don't think someone with a gun might decide they'd rather get a 100% discount?

Because having a gun makes everyone a potential robber; just like having a pussy turns all women into hookers.

I can't decide if that's a reductio ad absurdum or a straw man. Maybe a bit of both.
Anyway, it's funny because the headline (and your defense of it) seems to indicate the opposite extreme -- that no one with a gun could be a potential robber.

that no one with a gun could be a potential robber.


That would be as silly as saying that anyone with a gun is a potential robber.  Or that a gun can turn a good person bad.  Or that a vagina can turn a woman into a prostitute against her will.

/memorizing a few logical fallacies no more makes one a logician than having a vagina makes a woman a prostitute.
 
2013-02-16 04:23:49 PM  
So you're saying prostitutes are as bad as robbers? That's racist.

How long till a vigilante or cop shoots someone trying to get a discount?

Uh, dunno if you're all up ons with your robbery basics, but most folks who want a 100% discount don't bother waiting for an invitation.

We are more concerned about the robbers with the guns then the hookers with the pussys.

Since the owner open carries, one would think if a robber shows up one of them would leave in a body bag, and not the owner.

What kind of discount can I receive if I show that I don't allow the King to quarter his troops at my house?
 
2013-02-16 04:33:59 PM  
Does the discount apply to gangbangers too? Or just to cornbread white hicks who hate Obama?  There's a reason this shiat only happens in flyover country and near military bases.  Try this in LA, NYC, or Chicago and see what happens.
 
2013-02-16 04:36:04 PM  
So how do they prove they're a gun owner?  I assume they'll have to show the gun to the delivery driver, whom I'm sure will be THRILLED that every customer is going to be pulling a gun on them.

I have told managers on three separate occasions that my party is leaving unless the party with the gun on their hip is removed from the premises.

On all three occasions the police have had to show up to remind the threats that businesses reserve the right to serve who they please and people equipped with firearms were not welcome.

Unless the guy is quick on the draw, a robber will have the advantage. And the owner open-carrying will make any potential robbers more likely to shoot first.
 
2013-02-16 04:39:04 PM  
I can't wait for the followup story where the owner is either shot dead by a gun nut or gets robbed because of his own stupid rule.

Gun owners are so paranoid and spiteful.

Why would they rob the one place that they know has a gun-carrying owner when there are plenty of other places to rob.

Wait. If I'm following, you are dictating to a restaurant what the restaurant policy will be? And that policy is the restaurant does not serve people with guns? To clarify, you enter a restaurant, get seated, notice another group, one of whom has a gun, and you get the manager to remove them and by calling the police?

Free gun. And casually showing the guy the gun won't raise any red flags with him, then you casually blast him.

I read that as the police showing up after the armed party has raised a stink about being removed. Still a dick move.
 
2013-02-16 04:46:32 PM  
Geez, I don't know. Humans are such perverse animals...

I wouldn't be that surprised to hear that some bad galoot decided to make a point of meeting this challenge, or at least felt tempted by it.

So Laze the pizza maker, anticipating this, has to raise his level of defense to SAC-base levels. What, is he going to post shadow-guards, locked and loaded, staring through slits or video surveillance, on every goof who wanders into the pizza joint?

Thus a pizza entrepreneur, whose enterprise is presumably founded on the premise of adding value to dough and tomato sauce and turning a profit from it, is now locked into an escalating waiting game of who-makes-the-move. Jumpy, no? Viable business promotion?

On the other hand, he may have concluded his place will be swarming with hungry gun-nuts (no band name please), patronizing 'Slice by Slice' precisely because of his gunny stance. That assumption remains to be tested.

One of the most admirable things I've learnt about the overseas Chinese is summed up in their expression "Be quiet and make money". They do and they do.

There are other weapons for self-defense.

Gun wankers have totally freaked out since the November election and Sandy Hook.

They're hoarding  weapons and ammo in anticipation of Obama's UN storm troopers showing up at the door.

Stores have have no guns and no ammo. Literally zero. They have nothing on the shelves.

On the plus side, a good number of them will take out themselves and their families over the next couple of years.

It only seems to because you're not very bright.

If it were a line that indicated the absolute that "no one could" it would have been something more along the lines that is not possible.

Example:
Having a pussy means you've been on Mars
(sarcastically)

No, he used a statistically similar correlation.  "A minority of people in possession of a pussy are prostitutes"(an easily deducable fact).  And what that says about guns and how they relate to crime is, "A minority of people with guns are criminals."

Correlation vs Causation

It is indicative that the possession itself is not the cause of the choice of lifestyle, ergo, fighting blind prejudice of a moral zealot with an apparently low IQ.

This.  fark gun owners.

I make sure to casually key a few trucks and SUBs with NRA or GOP bumper stickers whenever I'm at the local mall or movie theater parking lot.

A little psychological conditioning goes a long way with these hicks ;)
 
2013-02-16 04:49:55 PM  
It's a good idea and why a lot of places offer cops discounts. Reduces the chance of being robbed.

This creates two possible outcomes for the owner:
1) no one will rob him
2) he gets shot first

Dream on. Media hype. Plenty of guns and ammo available retail and over the web. Spot shortages of some calibers and weapons is all.

All things being equal, I think id go to the non-gun pizza place. I do think that the revenue will probably increase just from people who want to support their right to concealed carry. I wonder if the food is any good?

Have you seen the surveillance videos of the folks that rob small businesses?  They're neither brave nor tough.  They're dumb punks and they'll go somewhere else.
 
2013-02-16 04:58:24 PM  
How big a discount can I get if I show him my anti-gorilla amulet? Google News search shows one (1) hit for "pizza restaurant robbed."

Open carry, especially if you have two or more employees in the store means you almost certainly won't get robbed. But if you DO get robbed, they'll shoot you and your partner in the head before you know you're being robbed.

Wait, are you accusing your average knock-over-a-pizza-joint thug of thinking?

Armed robbery is an insta-fellony with some mandatory minimums in pound-in-cornhole prison, so generally only the dumbest of the dumb tend towards armed robbery any more when the other option can usually end up in a misdemeanor or at least minimal jail time.
 
2013-02-16 05:00:42 PM  
The odds of your family being shot in a restaurant is based on the number of guns inside (or within range) of said restaurant... I'd simply take my business elsewhere.

Just as I won't let my kids play at houses of gun-owning neighbors.

It's math, biatches.

I've actually been paying attention to guns again the last couple months, as I'm soon to be living out in the country and will have many acres to do some shooting on.

Around here scary black rifles are hard to come by, and when you can find them the prices are 2-3x what they would normally be.  "Normal" stuff flew off the shelves too initially but stock is back to normal and prices are still ok. Most ammo is still around, albeit at higher prices. .223, 9mm, and 22lr are hard to find though.

I've actually been paying attention to gun prices the last couple months, as I'm soon to be living out in the country and will have many acres to shoot on. I'm probably on some sort of watch list now having purchased 3 of them in the last 6 weeks -- Marlin 60, Savage Mk II BV, and yesterday a Ruger MKIII 22/45. Hooray for .22s!
 
2013-02-16 05:00:59 PM  
If this place is giving a 15% discount to gun owners and still turn a comfortable profit, my first thought is, "Oh, they must be charging me 15% more than should be, and they're probably cutting corners elsewhere." Its one thing to give a discount for people who can't afford it or to celebrate an occasion or to reward them for doing something of value. But this is silly.

Generally any place that hops upon an emotional hot button issue unrelated to their core product sells shiat that nobody would buy normally. See: W Ketchup
