Restaurant Offers Discount to Gun Owners (Louisiana)

What started as a discount for law enforcement officers has become a discount for all armed citizens at one Louisiana eatery. 

Bergerons Cajun & Creole owner Kevin Cox said,

If you have a gun on you, I'm going to give you a discount

Cox has had the policy for law enforcement officers in place for a while but decided to open it up to all armed citizens after seeing so many of his friends and regulars armed in the restaurant. He told reporters,

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?

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. You feel safer because I mean somebody walks in and wants to rob the place, they’re going to think twice when they see it’s not a gun free place.

In order to get the discount, your gun must be on you in the restaurant. I don't imagine that's a problem for any of our readers.
