GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert’s Gun-Themed Eatery Will Be Replaced By a Mexican Restaurant



Shooters Grill, the gun-themed restaurant owned by far-right Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.), has closed down and will soon be replaced by Tapatios Family Mexican Restaurant.

The situation is especially delicious considering Boebert’s past comments against Mexican immigrants.

Boebert’s restaurant closed in July after the landlord refused to renew its lease, The New York Times reported. At the time, the landlord also refused to renew the lease for Boebert’s political office which was located next door to the restaurant.

In a statement about the restaurant’s closing, Boebert said the landlord’s decision “was purely a business decision with no political motivation.”

The restaurant sold dishes with gun-themed names and required its servers wore guns on their holsters. The restaurant also matched her ardent views on guns. She’s anti-gun control and has repeatedly claimed that firearm regulations are both unconstitutional and don’t stop violent gun-related crimes. She also allows her own son and his friends to play unsupervised around loaded weapons in her home.

Boebert has referred to Mexican immigrants at the southern border as “illegals… rapists, drug dealers, and criminals on the terrorist watch list.”

No matter her feelings about Mexicans, a Mexican family restaurant has placed a sign on her old place of business announcing that it will soon open where her eatery once stood.

‘Soulless Ghoul’: Colorado’s Boebert Slammed for Invoking God After Mass Shooting Then Fundraising Off Their Deaths



‘Hell No to Taking Our Guns’

U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert, Republican of Colorado, is being highly-criticized for invoking God after Monday’s mass shooting that left ten people at a Boulder supermarket dead, but then immediately fundraising off those deaths.

“As we continue to hear the news coming out of Boulder,” tweeted Rep. Boebert, whose district borders the one that includes Boulder. “I’m praying for the police, first responders, and those affected by this tragedy. May God be with us as we make sense of this senseless violence, and may we unify and not divide during this time.”

Barely hours later the “QAnon Congresswoman” was fundraising off those ten deaths, as journalist David Gura noted.

“Fellow Patriot,” the money-beg begins. “While the Media with the help of Big Tech pretends that Joe Biden is a ‘moderate,’ AOC, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer are filing their radical army into a Trojan Horse to attack our freedoms. Next: Our Second Amendment.”

“Will you please help me send them a message by pitching in $10?”

Congresswoman Boebert owns a restaurant called Shooters Grill and campaigned with a Glock on her hip.

On social media the backlash to her using the mass shooting to fundraise was fierce.
