At Shooters Grill in the river town of Rifle, open display of firearms is encouraged. It's a tribute to Colorado law that allows citizens to carry concealed weapons into willing commercial establishments. Shooters Grill does.

Owner Lauren Boebert said she's simply allowing customers and employees to exercise their constitutional right.
