    Anti-gun groups are attempting to organize a boycott of Starbucks on February 14 of this year. You may or may not know that Starbucks refused to bend to anti-gun hysteria and turn their stores into victim disarmament zones by prohibiting the carrying of defensive arms by law abiding folk.

    We as gun owners and armed citizens need to step forward and support business that support us. Please stop by your local Starbucks and pick up a coffee or pastry on Valentines Day. Save your receipt, an effort is being put together to show how our efforts overcame the opposition. Together we can show our resolve, it's an easy way to show how much we value our rights and our sport.

    Not what I was expecting when I read Starbucks boycott. Our 3 out of 5 Starbucks employees are better armed than me when I go to the one down the street.
     
  4. This only effects me cause I am a gun owner, other then that I say we get rid of coffee all together lol. That stuff is nasty. My form of "coffee" is a nice cup of hot tea.
     
  5. I don't have one near me, but I'll order something off the website.

    As a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, I appreciate your corporate policy in regards to firearms. It has been proved time and again, without the Second Amendment, those that visit your stores couldn’t exercise their First Amendment rights as Americans. It is because of these rights we Americans, have a rare opportunity to express our differences publicly.

    I am proud to stand with you on this matter and count you as a friend that deserves my fullest support. Others may boycott you for a day, but I will always support you and your decision to exercise your rights.

    Concerned Customer,

    Sweet, an excuse to get a Mocha and bear arms (albeit concealed) all at once.

    No, I might have posted it on GlockTalk but it was like a year ago.
     
  19. I don't normally do it or advise it but I think I will open carry in my local Bucks that day. Twice, on the way in and on the way home.
     
  20. Got a reply back

We comply with local laws and statutes in the communities we serve. Our long-standing approach to this issue remains unchanged and we abide by the laws that permit open carry in 43 U.S. states. Where these laws don't exist, openly carrying weapons in our stores is prohibited.

    > I am writing you today to express my support for Starbucks in regards to the stance you have taken against anti-gun activists.It is rare in this day and age to see a company stand up for the constitutional rights of their customers so publicly on such a controversial subject.Our rights as Americans need to be exercised and expressed or we stand too loose them, and that is clearly understood by Starbucks. Before this event appeared in the news I was not a customer of Starbucks, admittedly I felt the coffee to be over priced.When I found out, however, that Starbucks supports the rights of their customers to bare arms I felt obligated to support a company that supports me. I now shop at Starbucks proudly, and take pride in knowing that I support a company that fights for my right to bare arms.Your customers appreciate everything you are doing for them, and we want to make sure that you know it. Keep fighting the good fight, and we will be here to provide you with the reasons to fight, and the financial foundation to do so.
