Louisiana Restaurant Gives Discount to Gun-Toting Customers

A restaurant in Louisiana offers customers a discount if they bring a gun into the establishment. Bergeron’s Restaurant will give diners 10 percent off if they have a gun with them; owner Kevin Cox started the tradition to attract police officers to the restaurant. 


Cox said, "If you have a gun on you, I'm going to give you a discount. My friends and relatives would come in with their guns on their holster. I felt good about that. It made me feel safer that they were there with their gun, so why not include all citizens with the officers too."


Other restaurants in the area do not allow officers or civilians with guns to go inside, so Cox decided to encourage weapons at the establishment. 


Bergeron’s patrons have praised the restaurant for encouraging people to use their American right to bear arms. 


Restaurant customer Steve Moore said, "I think it protects the restaurant. It discourages people from breaking in. If they think someone may have a gun and it's concealed, you'll think twice about coming in and robbing somebody."
