If right-wingers were to make a more Second Amendment-y version of a Hooters restaurant, what would it look like?
Guns? Of course. Gotta have those.
Alcohol? Let’s avoid that… for obvious reasons.
Attractive (yet covered-up) waitresses? Check.
Jesus? Somehow, yes.
Based in a town named Rifle? How could anyone resist.
That’s the premise behind Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado:

A sign on the front door of Shooters Grill reads, “Guns are welcome on premises. Please keep all weapons holstered, unless the need arises. In such cases, judicious marksmanship is appreciated.
Shooters owner Lauren Boebert of Rifle said she is simply allowing customers and employees to exercise their constitutional right.
“We encourage it, and the customers love that they can come here and express their rights,” Boebert said. “This country was founded on our freedom. People can come in carrying their gun, and they can pray over their food.

“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.

This can only end well…
It’s worth pointing out that anyone can pray over their food anywhere. In fact, I can’t think of a single restaurant where that’s forbi—what’s that? “FREEDOM”?! Ah, yes. Got it.
For their sake, I sincerely hope this is the last time I hear about them in the news.
