As the debate of open-carry comes to the forefront of the gun debate, one Colorado restaurant is not only welcoming those who are packing heat, they’re waiting on customers with their gun at their side.
Ironically located in the town of Rifle, Colorado, Shooters Grill is sure to make liberal heads explode when it proves to be the safest restaurant in America, since you know those pesky guns just love to go on killing sprees all on their own.
A sign on the front door of the restaurant reads, “Guns are welcome on premises. Please keep all weapons holstered, unless the need arises. In such cases, judicious marksmanship is appreciated.”
One of the waitresses at Shooter, Ashlee Saenz, carries a loaded Ruger .357 Blackhawk handgun on her leg while she serves, and according to the Post Independent she knows how to use it.
The owner of Shooters, Lauren Boebert, says she’s a strong supporter of our Second Amendment rights.
“We encourage it, and the customers love that they can come here and express their rights,” she said. . “This country was founded on our freedom. People can come in carrying their gun, and they can pray over their food.”
Her and her husband Jayson opened the restaurant just over a year ago. The Western-themed décor makes the Mexican and American cuisine right at home, although if you’re looking for a cold beer you’re not going to find it there.
Boebert said that the décor and philosophy behind Shooters reflect her strong Christian faith.
“I consulted with my Christian friends, and everyone said ‘Shooters’ sounded like a bar or a strip joint,” she said. “But I thought, this is Rifle — it was founded around guns and the Old West. We called it Shooters and started throwing guns and Jesus all over the place.”
They even have the support of the local Police Chief John Dyer, who said that he’s a fan of their business model.
“If it was a bar, I might be saying something different. But I have no problem with it,” he said. “And besides, they make a really good burger.”
For those who aren’t too confident in their shooting abilities or are looking to get their concealed weapons permit, Shooters also offers training classes so people can get their CCW in both Utah and Colorado. The courses are held once a month and even come complete with dinner.
If we were to believe the anti-gun crowd, Shooters would be a bastion of psychopaths since there’s so many people carrying their guns in there. Don’t you just love it when the lunacy of the left is exposed in such a great way?
