Colorado Diner Allows Servers To Carry Guns While They Serve Customers
Bet you won’t complain about the service here…
A restaurant owner insists that of all her waitresses openly carry fully-loaded guns and encourages diners to tip with bullets after a man was killed onsite.
Lauren Boebert, 28, of Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado, makes staff take a concealed weapon training class before letting them lose.
The devout Christian and mother-of-four says the firearm dress-code hasn’t deterred customers and they flock from far and wide to catch a piece of the action.
‘We’ve had people from Alaska, we’ve had people from Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, we’ve had customers drive all the way from Utah just to eat dinner,’ she told Barcroft TV.
‘We’ve seen people rewrite their vacation trips – they were going to go the southern route and decided to go the northern route so they could come into Rifle, Colorado and see us.’
Lauren has even adapted the menu to incorporate aptly-named dishes such as the ‘Guac 9 – Guacamole’,’ Locked N’ Loaded Nachos’ and ‘Bull’s Eye Grilled Chicken’.
The walls are also decked out with gun-themed decor – along with crosses reflecting Lauren’s strong religious faith.
The entrepreneur opened her eatery in May 2013 with the help of her husband Jayson, 34.
But only a month after launching, Lauren says a man was killed outside the venue.
She swiftly looked into getting a permit for a concealed weapon – only to discover that she could already openly carry guns in her own restaurant.
Recalling the chain of events, Lauren said: ‘There was an altercation in our back alley that ended with a man losing his life so I began to look into getting a concealed weapon permit so I could start carrying.
‘I learned that in Colorado you do not need a permit to open carry so I took my gun to work the next day.
‘Now all of the waitresses openly wear guns and carry dangerous hollow-point bullets – which are designed to cause maximum damage to a potential attacker by expanding on impact.’
They not playin’ NO games.
