Free Press Letter: Sidearms in restaurant not a deterrent for this reader

Next time I’m in Rifle, Colo., I will probably stop in at Shooters [a restaurant recently in the news for encouraging waitstaff and patrons to open carry firearms] just to check it out. I don’t imagine it will bother me if folks are carrying sidearms or not. I know I won’t worry about a robbery or mass murder while I’m there! On the other hand, I don’t know if I’ll enjoy strong political statements one way or another in eateries. Bottom line is probably that if the food, service and atmosphere is good, I’ll enjoy my visit and probably return.
