Open Carry, Would You Like Fries with That?

Open carry has caused waves in recent months. But at one Colorado eatery, it’s just another day on the job.

Shooters Grill in Rifle (my God how apt!) has gained national attention because of its stance towards open carry. Put simply, it’s encouraged among both staff and patrons.

Yup, most of the wait staff have a pistol or revolver hanging off their hips, as do many hungry customers.

As restaurant owner Lauren Boebert points out in the above video from Grand Junction’s KJCT8.com, this is not a stunt meant to drive business. Instead, she initiated the practice around a year ago when Shooters opened as a way for she, her staff and her customers to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

According to the KJCT8.com’s report, carrying is not mandatory by employees. But if they do plan to strap on their shooting irons, they much go through a handgun training course that is a prerequisite to obtain a concealed carry permit in Colorado.

The restaurant has even gone a step further in advocating the Second Amendment, hosting monthly concealed carry permit classes – complete with a free meal.
