Toyota Prius owners aren’t bad folks. With a few exceptions, they’re just normal people that appreciate the comfortable, high-mileage hybrid. Someone in Arlington, Virginia doesn’t see it that way, though, as 14 examples (and one Smart) had at least one tire slashed last Sunday night.

Virginia restaurant offers discount to gun-toting patrons

A Northern Virginia restaurant owner giving gun owners a 15 percent discount on their bills in an attempt to promote his business as a gun-friendly establishment.

Brian Crosswhite, owner of The Cajun Experience in Leesburg, is hosting weekly ‘open carry’ discount nights for patrons with concealed handgun permits, WJLA.com reports.

“Why can’t I promote my business as a gun-friendly place that people come in and are law-abiding citizens who chose to participate in the second amendment,” Crosswhite told the station.

Crosswhite said he’s received some pushback against the promotion but that support among customers outweighs any resistance, according to the report.

In February, a Virginia Beach pizza shop owner said he would give gun owners a 15 percent discount in a show of support for gun rights.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
