Waitresses packing heat


(KUSA) At Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado you can decide whether your freshly made cherry pie comes with ice cream, but you have no choice on who delivers it: An armed waitress.

All nine of the servers at the restaurant pack heat as they shuttle plates of food to diners, from Glock semi-automatics to Ashlee Saenz’s thigh-length Rueger Blackhawk .357 six-shooter. On the wall, posted alongside copies of the Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights, is a sign declaring that those inside are still “proudly clinging to my guns and Bible.”

Owner Lauren Boebert, 27, says she didn’t start out to make a statement when she began carrying a pistol on her hip a month after opening Shooters a year ago. But through the months, her other waitresses thought it was kind of fun and they, too, started carrying.

“We don’t worship guns. We worship Jesus,” said Boebert, a 27-year-old mother of four whose husband works in the oil industry. “We’re here to serve people.”
