Gun-Friendly Small Businesses Popping Up Across America


While several gigantic chain stores have recently decided to ban guns, small businesses around the country are taking the opposite approach – and it is paying off.

Business is booming at places like Shiloh Brew & Chew in Maryville, Tennessee, which posted a “guns are welcome” sign earlier this year. At The Cajun Experience in Leesburg, Virginia, a promotion meant to attract armed customers resulted in an “overwhelming” response, owner Bryan Crosswhite says.

Crosswhite has even started a website — — listing pro-gun businesses around the country. More than 57,000 businesses have already signed on.


  1. Since Maryville is my home town, I will have to patronize their business. I will report my findings!

  2. Just gotta say, out here, in Moscow, Idaho, we have a small but very good BBQ joint called CD's Smoke Pit. If you open carry while in there, you receive a 10 percent discount on your tab.

    They do have some of the best ribs that I have ever had!

    Whenever I pass through Moscow, usually when I am traveling between where I live and Spokane, I try to time it so I can have lunch there.

    And yes, the owners know me very well!



  3. With discounts like that, I can afford my new Glock!!!

  4. My favorite diner in Fort Worth, Westside Cafe, has a sign the reads, "GUNS ARE WELCOME ON PREMISES PLEASE KEEP ALL WEAPONS HOLSTERED UNLESS NEED ARISES. IN SUCH A CASE, JUDICIOUS MARKSMANSHIP IS APPRECIATED". The owner is an excellent shot.
