Not “Hooters” but “Shooters” ~ An “American Family Style Restaurant” in Rifle, Colorado where the waitress openly carry firearms
Meet 28 y/o Lauren Boebert (that’s her below), the owner of Shooters Grill in aptly named Rifle, Colorado, a small town on the western slopes of the Rockies.
Shooters is an “American Family Style Restaurant” which serves a variety of food…
By both a proverbial three (3) armed, and a literal well-armed, staff…
Unlike such arguably unpatriotic (and unsafe) places as Starbucks and Target, at Shooters the staff openly carry firearms on their waists and the customers are welcomed to do so as well, so long as the customers abide by the sign on Shooters’ front door, which reads: “Please keep all weapons holstered unless need arises. In such case judicious marksmanship is appreciated.”
Owner Lauren Boebert, a former “Miss Junior Colorado” and born-again Christian says that Shooters is “a way of life. When you walk into Shooters you are walking into America. This is what America is.” When asked about gun violence in the face of such atrocities as Columbine (which occurred to too far away) Lauren says: “I don’t advocate violence, but if someone comes after me they need to know what they’re up against.” Lauren’s vision includes such ideas as the “Guac 9” and “Swiss & Wesson Burger”, which happens to be the personal favorite of Rifle Police Chief John Dyer. In response to questions about his feeling on Shooter’s open carry policy the Chief says: Guns are part of the fabric of the community… I know the waitresses have undergone training, and we’ve never had any complaints.
Lauren also dreamed up the “Sidearm Sandwich Special”, is a $75.00 “package deal” which includes dinner and a State approved concealed weapons class.
Naturally the NRA like Shooters, officially describing it as a place that “serves up some mighty good cooking seasoned with a touch of the 2nd Amendment”.
Shooter’s website can be found here and their Facebook page can be found here. The food looks great and from the looks of things I don’t suspect that you need to worry about being robbed on the premises. I am NOT a CO lawyer, and I did not find a CO statute on point, but still I strongly suggest that if you are packing then be mindful of booze consumption. (In Florida it is unlawful to either “discharge” or to “have a firearm readily accessible for immediate discharge” while under the influence of either alcohol – see Florida Statute 790.151 – or controlled substances.)
