Talk about a palate cleanser – a restaurant owner who actually encourages open carry in his restaurant, and offers 10% discount for carrying on Wednesdays – Nice!
The sign reads:
“Guns are welcome on the premises. Please keep all firearms holstered unless the need arises. In such case judicious marksmanship is greatly appreciated by all.
From the article at Leesburg Today:
This was the brainchild of owner Bryan Crosswhite, who started the special four weeks ago. Crosswhite is a native of Lafayette, LA, and said he has worked internationally as an economist, including in the Middle East.
“I’ve seen what the restricting of freedom is all about,” Crosswhite said. “It’s our legal right to carry. I want it to be [my customers’] right to carry in our restaurant.”
Crosswhite encourages his customers to carry licensed firearms every day, but the discount is only offered on Wednesdays. Many of those who come in are law enforcement and former military, he said, but others come in to enjoy the atmosphere among like-minded individuals.
