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. “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,” kstp.com reports. “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.”
Much research has shown, over and over again, that people who obtain permits to carry guns are incredibly peaceful and responsible, much more so than the rest of society. They are several times less likely to commit crimes than police officer. Inviting people who carry guns legally to your business is similar to running a donuts shop that police officers frequent. Your chances of getting robbed are greatly reduced (even if the officers’ waistbands are greatly increased).
