This Restaurant Offers a Discount to All Gun Owners

This Restaurant Offers a Discount to All Gun Owners

The Dueling Irons, a restaurant in Post Falls, Idaho, offers a 15 percent discount to anyone who carries a gun

Got a firearm on you or back at home? Your bill will be slashed.

We’ve heard of military discounts or deals for police and firefighters, but this is a pretty new trend: A restaurant in North Idaho is offering a 15 percent discount to any gun owners, either customers who are carrying a weapon on them (concealed or open-carry) or have a gun license in their wallet. This is a new policy for Dueling Irons on Schneidmiller Avenue in Post Falls, Idaho, but owner Thomas Didra has always been passionate about the Second Amendment and teaching others that the vast majority of gun owners are responsible.

"I wanted to provide a safe environment for people to come in and not only learn but experience that gun owners are usually self-respecting, very good people," Didra told local CBS News syndicate, KREM.

As a result of the discount, Dueling Irons has become an informal gathering place for people in the area who are passionate about guns.

Didra has gotten a fairly positive response from customers at the mom and pop diner, but admits that the policy has experienced some backlash.

"This is what we've chosen to do as a business and we respect your choices. And don't hold any ill will if you don't feel comfortable or safe in that environment."

Of course, Dueling Irons isn’t the only restaurant with this policy. The Daily Meal has reported on several eateries who offer gun discounts including Papa Roux in Indiana and Bergeron’s in Louisiana.


Indianapolis restaurant offers discount to gun owners with concealed carry permit

An Indianapolis restaurant that was robbed last weekend is now offering a 25% discount to any customer with a concealed gun permit.

Art Bouvier, co-owner of Papa Roux on the city's east side, announced the new deal on Facebook just two hours after the hold-up.

"About 7:30 tonight, The Roux was robbed by an armed robber," Bouvier wrote.

"If thugs are going to come in and threaten OUR extended family with guns, you'd better believe I will use every trick I know to protect (our family).

"The "papa" in Papa Roux announced on his Facebook page that all customers with a concealed carry license would get 25% off their meal when they dined in "until further notice."

The robbery didn't cause much of a ruckus and Bouvier wrote the crew had reacted "quickly and calmly."

The suspect waited his turn in line and once he got to the front, demanded the employees give up the restaurant's cash.

"He told me don't move, don't open the register. I have a gun," employee Alex Verbarg told WXIN-TV.

The employee refused so the nervous robber reached into the tip jar, took the cash and bolted out the door.

There were no reports of any arrests made by Monday afternoon.

Some people on social media said Bouvier's discount to armed customers was going too far — with several defriending his restaurant on Facebook and criticizing the decision on Twitter.

Papa Roux just lost my business. Not that I was a regular, but have been in a few times. Not any more. https://t.co/2yidTQGN25

"Papa Roux just lost my business," wrote one Twitter user. "Not that I was a regular, but have been in a few times. Not anymore."

"We're not condoning violence, we're not reacting in haste," the co-owner wrote on Facebook Monday morning. "I find it sad and unfortunate that you would boycott a business simply for having a particular LEGAL view."

Despite the criticism, Bouvier wrote that most of the response had been "overwhelmingly positive" and it seemed the media attention would be good for business.
