Shooters Grill, a restaurant in Rifle, Colorado where every waitress packs a gun, has reopened in defiance of a cease and desist order.
The owner of the restaurant, Lauren Boebert, is running for Congress as the antithesis to AOC.
Yesterday, I opened my restaurant in Rifle, CO.— Lauren Boebert for Congress (R-CO3) (@laurenboebert) May 10, 2020
Small businesses everywhere deserve the chance to open up. We are the life blood of this nation’s economy.

CBS4 Denver reports:
The Rifle Police Department delivered a cease and desist order on Tuesday.
“There’s no difference into going into my restaurant for 20 minutes and someone going into a salon for an hour-and-a-half,” said Boebert.
Boebert said she will do everything to keep her doors open and her staff employed.
GPM visited Shooters Grill and included the restaurant as part of its Second Amendment Spotlight Series, which can be viewed below:
