Lauren Boebert’s Gun-Themed Restaurant is Shutting its Doors

Donald Trump may be out of the White House, but the current GOP is laden with his MAGA acolytes. The most embarrassing (not that she doesn’t have plenty of competition) of these may be Lauren Boebert, a United States Representative from Colorado.

Boebert rode into the House of Representatives largely on the strength of her story. The Republican owned a restaurant in Rifle, Colorado where each of the servers was armed with a firearm. According to Boebert, the servers wanted to carry after a man was beaten the death outside. The story of the beating turned out to be a lie.

On Wednesday, it was revealed that the restaurant would be closing its doors. The Congresswoman told the press that her landlord would not renew the lease and, “there wasn’t really much wiggle room or anywhere to compromise unless we bought the building ourselves.”

Boebert continued, “Within the next two hours, I had reporters reaching out to me asking me if this was true and if we were being evicted. I said, ‘Well, we’re not being evicted. The lease is not being renewed — that’s a big difference.”

The Congresswoman, however, wasn’t willing to give up on her restaurant dreams. “We would just dramatically scale it back, because, obviously, we’re not in our building,” she said. “It may look like a Shooters coffee shop with pastries and some easy breakfast sandwiches and merchandise.”
