Austin bookstore Brave-New-Books offering 10 percent discount to open-carriers

AUSTIN — Brave New Books is offering a 10 percent discount to all customers open-carrying in their store.

The store is also hosting an open-carry symposium on Jan. 30 to help Texas residents learn more about open-carry legislation.

Speakers for the event include Michael Cargil of Central Texas Gun Works and Stephen Sheftall of Defense Distributed. There will also be a panel of firearms freedoms activists who will discuss Second Amendment activity in Texas.

The bookstore, located next to the University of Texas campus, said in a press release that they are the only bookstore in Austin to allow open-carry.

“We appreciate it when people take security and defense in to their own hands.  In a world where mass shootings are happening more and more, when seconds count, it’s up to we the people to protect our community,”  said Brave New Books general manager John Bush in a press release.

Popular Austin bookstores, including Half-Price Books and Book People, have said no to customers openly displaying firearms while in their stores.

Brave New Books isn’t the first business in Texas to offer a discount to open carriers. Brooks Place, Houston-area barbecue joint, is offering a 25 percent discount to customers who come in wearing their weapons in the open, according to the Houston Chronicle.
