RIFLE, Colo. — At Shooters Grill 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."
