SOUNDBITE: Jay Laze, owner All Around Pizzas and Deli7. Laze making PizzaSTORYLINE:A Virginia Beach pizza shop owner is showing his support for firearm rights by giving gun owners a 15 percent discount. The discount is given to anyone who carries a gun or brings a concealed handgun permit to All Around Pizzas and Deli. Owner Jay Laze tells media outlets that he had planned on offering the discount for a limited time. But he said the discount might become permanent because of the response. Since the discount began last Friday, Laze said 80 percent of his customers have brought guns into the pizza shop, including one who came in with an AK-47. Several others carried 9 mm handguns. Laze said he bought a gun after he was robbed at gunpoint outside his business in April 2007. "I've always been a supporter of the right to carry," he 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." He said he got the idea from a similar discount offered by an ice cream shop in Utah.(VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:)A VIRGINIA RESTAURANT OWNER IS PAIRING HIS TWO PASSIONS--PIZZA AND POLITICS--IN AN UNUSUAL WAY...

That's just, that's just asking for trouble right there."LAZE SAYS HE'D PLANNED ON OFFERING THE DISCOUNT FOR A LIMITED TIME...BUT HE SAYS THE RESPONSE HAS BEEN SO OVERWHELMING HE MIGHT MAKE IT PERMANENT.(jay laze, Gun Owner)"a lot of criticism I read online is that they hope I accidentally get shot by a gun dropping on the ground or something, or someone robs me with a gun, but my response to that is we have people carrying guns all around, so they can shoot me, but they probably wont leave the store alive.
