My kind of burger joint

The kind that not only allows armed diners into the premises, but arms the waitresses too:
How does a Swiss and Wesson grilled cheese for lunch sound? 
Or a Guac 19 burger for dinner? 
And would you like to attend a concealed carry class after your meal?
All is possible at Shooters Grill, a family-style American diner situated in the hunting-loving town of Rifle, Colorado. 
All nine of the servers at the restaurant pack heat, from Glock semi-automatics to Ashlee Saenz's thigh-length Rueger Blackhawk .357 six-shooter. 
However owner Lauren Boebert said that, despite the name, she did not set out to create a saloon when opening the doors to the place in May last year. 
'We don't worship guns - we worship Jesus,' the 27-year-old mother-of-four 9 News. 
'We're here to serve people.' 
    But amid endless debate about America's gun control epidemic, an eatery that encourages customers to carry their weapons - complete with a sign saying 'Guns Are Welcome' - should be controversial. 
    But it isn't. [Didact: Self-defence is only controversial to liberals who don't understand the concept. To the rest of us, it's about as controversial as breathing.]
    Set in ranch and natural gas country in southern Colorado, the 9,200 residents - as well as visitors - of Rifle seem to have embraced it.
    This is why I love this country. I know of no other nation on Earth, with the very exceptional case of perhaps Switzerland, that is so accommodating toward the right that everyone has to self-defence. (And let's be very clear about this- "self-defence" is just a euphemism for "hurting other people very badly, so that they stop hurting you.")

    So the next time you're in Colorado, why not look this place up? At the very least, you'll get an enjoyable meal- the menu items look to be quite delicious and hearty, judging by the pictures- and you can actually attend a concealed carry class after dessert. What's not to love?

    The best thing about this place? The sign next to the door:

    This greets customers as they arrive at the restaurant in Rifle, southern Colorado

    God, Guns, Glory, indeed.
