Starbucks Taking away our Second Amendment Right! Banning Guns.

WTF Starbucks? How can you take away something that was started by our Founding Fathers. StarBucks you are not the government. Stick to business not politics!

Are they even really allowed to do this? If I have a concealed weapon permit, what can they do? just not serve me an over price cup of coffee?

This comes after the Navy yard shooting. I understand the worry about gun safety. But would really taking away peoples guns make people safe against a shooter?

This really ticks me off!  Angry Angry Angry

Well, maybe not quite...

http://xfinity.comcast.net/articles/news-general/20130918/US--Starbucks-Guns/

What it says is, SB doesn't LIKE guns, but they're not BANNING them, either...typical fence-sitting stance...which, I guess, is better than SB just outright saying "No"...

Why the change of position? Simple...dollars.  Gun owners were protesting outside of SB stores enough to keep people away and cause negative publicity, SO..

SB's  convoluted rationalization for their new "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy?

They don't want their employees to "confront an armed customer"...some day, unfortunately, those same employees will thank God one of their armed customers HAS a sidearm in their possession when one of the millions of our nation's marauding criminals decides to jack one of their shops...

They won't kick you out for packin' heat, butt you can bet your bottom dollar their service won't be the best it can be. I'll bet some of the patchouli oil smellin', dredlock wearin' barristas will prolly be downright snarky when they see that you brought Smith & Wesson with you.

The only controls I want on my guns are the ones I operate by myself, such as safety, magazine release, bolt or slide, optics an' trigger. Any others are unnecessary.

Starbucks is a private business, so they have a right to exclude anyone from their place of business for any reason. However, if they do decide exclude people who are legally carrying guns, all conservatives should boycott Starbucks.

Personally, I avoid Starbucks because I can't stand the smell of coffee.

Anyone dumb enough to pay $5 for a cup of coffee does not have the mental capacity to carry a gun.

Not a problem to me.  I'm not 21 and I'd rather have a Dr Pepper than overpriced drinks.

Well, how would any one in the store know whether you are CARRYING a gun or not?  Concealed Carry, anyone?  Or do gun owners like to tell the whole world they're armed?  Wouldn't that be defeating the whole purpose of carrying in the first place?

I'm almost 81 and I prefer Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, or Iced Tea over any of those overpriced drinks.
