VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - There's more than just pizza packing heat at a Virginia Beach restaurant.
All Around Pizza and Deli on Holland Road is offering a 15 percent discount for gun owners.
Shop owner Jay Laze said the discount will be offered to anyone who comes in with a gun or shows a concealed weapon permit.
"I've always been a supporter of the right to carry," Laze said. "You're either on one side or the other, and it seems like more politicians are against us rather than for us. I want to show them they really aren't representing the people or the constitution they are sworn in under."
Customers like Christopher Cody came in with guns attached to their hips. Cody said he didn't get pizza at Laze's restaurant because of the discount, but because of the message.
"Not everyone who owns a gun is dangerous," said customer Christopher Cody. "All the laws that are coming out are trying to protect the children. I've been sitting here with a gun for the last 45 minutes and it hasn't caused any kind of problem."
James Lea joked about the clientele.
"Probably not going to get robbed here tonight," Lea said.
Laze said since Friday, 80 percent of his customers have come in carrying guns. He had planned for the discount to run until March, but because of the response, he is considering making it permanent.
