SOUTH OGDEN, Utah -- An ice cream shop owner in South Ogden is showing his support for gun rights by giving customers who bring in their concealed carry permits a $1 discount.

The Farr’s Fresh location at 4013 Riverdale Road is the only Farr’s location offering the discount. The store is run by Ronald Young. Young said he is doing a discount for those with concealed weapon permits because he feels like gun owners get an unfair reputation, and he sees this as his way to send a message.   

"I really think that the average man is getting beat up pretty good today simply because he owns a gun,” he said.  “Every time somebody, some wacko, goes on a shooting spree, top leaders of our country decide it’s time to take guns away from everybody who didn't do it, and I personally think you need to stand up and say something about that.”
