MN:Discount Gas for Gun Carriers

Another business discovers the advantages of welcoming the gun culture and supporting the Constitution. In Minnesota, a gas station has found a way to disuade robbers by welcoming people with guns. From kstp.com:

After getting robbed twice over the last three months, the owner of a Shell gas station in Sauk Rapids wanted to get more customers during the evening, hoping it would improve safety.

Last week, station owner Frank Schwagel offered a 10-cent-per-gallon discount for law enforcement or people with proof of permit to carry after 7 p.m. each day.

1. Years ago, I managed a convenience store,

which, of course, meant that I worked a lot of graveyard shifts.

We had three regulars who were disabled Vietnam veterans; they were roommates who made their living reloading and selling ammo. They looked scary (tattoos were not de rigueur back then), but were really nice guys.

Whenever they would come in, they would be visibly carrying significant handgun firepower. A customer once saw them and asked. "aren't you worried?" I said, "Are you kidding? Who's going to rob me while they're here?"

3. Good story - good reminder: external appearances can be very deceiving.

I mean, who'd have been afraid of this guy? He looks decent enough - and no scary guns to be seen...

2. That's a big discount. Not a bad idea.
