Louisiana restaurant offers discount to armed customers: ‘I just need to see a weapon’

Published

on

A Louisiana restaurant owner is offering a 10 percent discount to anyone with a gun because he said that it makes him feel safer.

Kevin Cox, owner of Bergeron’s Restaurant in Port Allen, told WVLA that customers asked if they could bring their firearms after seeing that he was giving a discount to law enforcement officers who were carrying guns.

“I just need to see a weapon. I need you to be carrying a gun,” Cox said. “As long as everybody has a gun we’re all the same size.”

“I keep hearing so much about people banning guns,” he added. “Target’s banning guns and these people are banning guns. Don’t they realize that that’s where people with guns are going to go? I want to take the opposite approach. How can I make my place safer?”

Customer Olivia Carambat said that she brought her Smith and Wesson 38 to get a discount, and to protect her constitutional rights.

“There’s so many people who are trying to take our guns away and the government makes stricter gun laws,” she remarked. “They forget that we really do, we’re given the right in the Constitution to keep and bear arms.”

Cox explained to WAFB that he felt safer as more and more people brought guns into the restaurant.

“My friends and relatives would come in with their guns on their holster. I felt good about that. It made me feel safer that they were there with their gun, so why not include all good citizens with the officers too,” he said.

“If you have a gun on you, I’m going to give you a discount.”

Rick Wilson buries Pam Bondi for ‘laughable and shallow’ impeachment defense designed to dazzle Trump

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Republican campaign consultant Rick Wilson leveled former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi for her defense of Donald Trump on Monday -- which turned into a diatribe against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.

Speaking with host Willie Geist, Wilson also brought up accusations os political corruption against Bondi who dropped a Florida state lawsuit against Trump before he became president after a PAC associated with her received a substantial political donation.

"This is also one of the great master fantasies of the Trump campaign, make Hunter Biden a major issue in the 2020 election and Pam Bondi played to one audience. and that was Fox and Trump that's all they cared about," he explained. "That's all they were trying to accomplish, and, look, she goes way back with Donald Trump; left office under a cloud when she left the office of attorney general in Florida, because she had taken basically a $25,000 bribe from Donald Trump about Trump University and drop the lawsuit in Florida."

The hosts of "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday bitterly complained that former national security adviser John Bolton had prolonged President Donald Trump's impeachment trial in the Senate -- and suggested it was all because he was "trying to sell a book."

At the start of the segment, co-host Brian Kilmeade admitted that leaked revelations about Bolton's upcoming book had changed the game and that it was impossible to imagine the president being acquitted without any witnesses being called.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe uncorks hilarious rant against ‘confederacy of dunces’ defending Trump from impeachment

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough breathlessly ranted, as his co-hosts cracked up with laughter, against the "confederacy of dunces" defending President Donald Trump from impeachment.

The "Morning Joe" host mocked the hours-long parade of attorneys -- including Alan Dershowitz, Ken Starr and Pam Bondi -- offering specious legal arguments to defend the president at his Senate impeachment trial.

"You had a confederacy of dunces defending him in impeachment," Scarborough said. "Their arguments were absolutely stunning."

The defense team painted Rudy Giuliani as a minor player in the Ukraine scheme, although multiple witnesses have described him as the hub of the operation, and Starr, the lead investigator in Bill Clinton's impeachment, bemoaned the "age of impeachment."
