Store owner Jay Laze told NewsChannel3 he was inspired to offer the discount after hearing about a similar deal at a frozen yoghurt shop in Utah.

Farr's Fresh, the store in South Odgen, Utah, initially held a "Second Amendment day" offering permit holders $1 off their purchase, Fox 13 News reported.

He told the Associated Press around 80 per cent of customers had so far taken advantage of the offer, with one even bringing in an AK-47.

Brendan Kelly said: "It's part of our rights as Americans and everybody should be entitled to the option if they want to, so it's nice to have an incentive."

The right to bear arms is ensured by the U.S. Constitution, while concealed weapons permits are decided by individual states.
