    More VA Business' offering gun owner discount!

    I know i was, and I'm sure many of you guys were too, hoping that more area business' would follow Jay Laze of All Around Pizza's example, and offer discounts to law abiding citizens.

    Well at least 3 others are! Moms Kitchen on Holland rd near All round Pizza being one of them! Also i heard it this morning which other business' are doing it on FM99 but i didn't write it down! I know its a tattoo shop and a tactical supply shop. As soon as i know i will correct this info.

    Really fantastic for our area. We need to show support and commend these businesses and encourage others to do the same! I don't want this to fizzle out! I'd love to figure out a way to ensure these businesses get recognized. The best way i guess is to show your support! And ask everyone you know to do so as well!

    If you know of a business that offers a discount to gun owners add it to the list!!

    These business offer a discount to gun owners by showing an open carried firearm or a concealed permit.

    Mom's Kitchen
    Som Bao Cafe
    Talon Deep Cover Concealment.
    RDP Electrical Services LLC

    Bellissimo Pizza Cafe - Williamsburg

    There is such a list of those businesses offering discounts to gun owners on VCDL's site.

    Use it and use it often.

    http://www.vcdl.org/discounts

    Don't forget to advise of any changes to that list.

    Do they give discounts to all who open carry? Although everyone should be, not all gun owners/carriers are VCDL members.

    It is another benefit of membership in VCDL.

    Had been thinking about the same thing yesterday -- wondering how long it might be before others saw the benefit of doing this for their own businesses. That had me thinking about the proactive approach and wondering if there are some businesses that we collectively might know of as 2A friendly, and asking them. One that comes to mind as a place where they've been friendly for years is Village Inn here in VA BH and I wonder how receptive they might be.

    Maybe we could have a sticky list here for those types of places, by area or such?

    Heard on FM 106.9 this morning that they supposedly have a listing on their site for the known businesses offering discounts. I looked though but didn't find that list.

    And everyone could be; in some cases, the discounts are worth the price of admission.

    By the way, nothing I say on this website as "user" should be taken as either advertising for attorney services or legal advice, merely personal opinion. Everyone having a question regarding the application of law to the facts of their situation should seek the advice of an attorney competent in the subject matter of the issues presented and licensed to practice in the relevant state.

    We should be adding these discounts into the Friend or Foe website mentioned in the other current thread.... perhaps the owner of that site could add a new icon with a "$" sign, indicating a discount for CC/OCers!
