    We should be doing everything we can to patronize and publicize businesses like this pizza shop. In Texas, we have a website that publicizes businesses and others that post the "don't carry here" signs (Texas3006.com - Your 30.06 Information Resource - Home). But if we could shift the focus to carry-friendly businesses, I think more businesses would jump on the bandwagon.

    There is a local Mexican place in Omaha that has a sign that welcomes Legal Concealed Carriers. I don't go there as often as I should because it is well off my beaten path but the food is good and I like seeing a sign that welcomes me, not criminalize me.

    In case you live in or visit the Omaha area, check out Netties Fine Mexican Food.

    I'll bet some idiot is going to try to sue the pizza shop for discrimination.

    That was one of the comments I saw on the article: "This is blatant discrimination."

    Hah, whatever.

    I applaud this business owner for putting his money behind his support. At this point we have to exhaust every opportunity to influence public opinion, I guess.

    Personally, though, I kinda prefer the "always carry, never tell" philosophy. I don't want any discount. I just want to be left alone. I would patronize a business like this in a heartbeat, but I would not take advantage of the discount because it's no one's concern but mine whether I'm carrying.

    If a business were simply to display a sign something like "We respect and support those who exercise their 2nd Amendment rights. You are welcome here" and leave it at that, I would be happy.

    I hope the store owner also let's his delivery people carry on the job!

    Not really. You may apply and get a permit. Your choice. No one is stopping you.

    Not only that, a private business is allowed to refuse service for any reason as long as its not based on race or religion if I'm not mistaken.

    Agreed. I've thought about offering a CC discount at my business, but I don't think people would want me to know, which I respect.

    I think that just became the least likely place in town to get robbed.

    Not sure how I feel about people flashing their pieces, but I think offering discounts to people for producing a valid CHL at the time of purchase is great. But of course there's potential backfire. People who hate guns could just as easily boycott these same places for doing this. Still, I think it's great and I would happily patronize businesses that do this.
