There's this place over in Rifle, Colorado (yes, it's true!) that has an eatery called "Shooter's Grill". They specialize in American and Tex Mex fare...and the 2nd Amendment. All the waitresses are packing heat, several of them "gunslinger style" with their hog leg tied firmly at mid thigh. As in Arizona, it is perfectly legal to open carry any kind of gun you fancy.
As you walk in the door you see a sign that announces guns are welcome, but politely ask that you keep them holstered unless the need arises.
Once you step inside you'll encounter the scent of gun oil and leather and bacon and home fries. You'll be greeted by a smiling hostess who will see you to a table, where she'll tap the table top with the barrel of her rifle and bid you to "take a seat pardner."
The lady that owns the place, Ms. Lauren Boebert, said she just wants to offer a place where gun owners feel comfortable exercising their Constitutional rights. She even offers weapons training courses on her own range and for $75 bucks she throws in bullets and dinner. And you might not be surprised to learn that Ms. Lauren's restaurant has never been robbed.
Now, if I were a liberal just passing through Rifle, Colorado, and I happened to stop in to Shooter's Grill, I probably wouldn't raise the issue of gun control. Hell, I don't know if I'd even complain to my waitress about overdone steak or undercooked eggs!
And if I were planning to stage a gun control protest outside Shooter's I'd want to google the maximum effective range of a Ruger .357 Blackhawk Revolver or a good old Colt. .45!...and I'd give both employees and customers all the space they needed!
Ah..sometimes the stories are happy ones!
