I was checking out Gretchen Carlson's show (Shannon Bream subbed) as I do from time to time and she featured a segment on Thursday about a restaurant in Rifle, Colorado that's called Shooters Grill, where the waitresses all carry hand guns. In Colorado, they have an open gun policy so this is all legal and I figured these types of businesses will get their fifteen minutes of fame since in states like Georgia are being run over by gun fetishers, but what I didn't expect from the owner, Lauren Boebert, is the idea that Jesus loves him some guns too because of-freedom.

We've met a lot people from all over this country who want to patronize this restaurant because of what we stand for. We stand for our second amendment right's. We stand in faith of our lord Jesus and it's just amazing that people come in.

We're not here to worship guns. We worship Jesus and we love people. We love to serve them and that's what it's all about

All the women wearing guns are very pretty including the owner so I can see how this would attract many male customers, but I don't understand how they can believe that Jesus would be an NRA nut wanting everybody to carry loaded weapons. It's mind boggling. And by promoting her restaurant with gun totting mommas, she is worshiping guns whether she believes it or not. I just hope some drunken idiots don't get too carried away and shoot up the place. Thank goodness they don;'t serve alcohol there.

She told Shannon that they also hold gun training sessions for 75.00 that will qualify anyone to then carry a concealed weapon in the state which is all fine and dandy.

UPDATE: Huff Po has more:

State law allows local governments and businesses to prohibit guns in their buildings, but a sign on Shooters' front door reads: "Guns are welcome on premises. Please keep all weapons holstered unless need arises. In such case, judicious marksmanship is appreciated."

Shooters owner Lauren Boebert said she's simply allowing customers and employees to exercise their constitutional right to bear arms.

"We encourage it, and the customers love that they can come here and express their rights," Boebert said.

She chose the restaurant's name last year as a nod to its gun policy.

"I consulted with my Christian friends and everyone said 'Shooters' sounded like a bar or a strip joint," Lauren Boebert said with a laugh. "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."
