Time to add Starbucks

This is where to post the names of places to boycott because they have anti-gun, anti-freedom stances or policies. Any posts advocating boycotts must explain the reasons for the boycotts including, if possible, documentary proof, such as links to business web sites or news articles.

Exactly!


Thanks for the link. I could not agree with him more. I have always had an opposition to the OCing of long guns for political purposes. I have had an equal position of respecting private property rights, even those open to the public.

I truly feel Starbucks is handling this as professionally and politically correct as possible. I for one will increase my business with them.

I hope this teaches those people that read a few lines of law, usually from a forum, feel they are above reproach and record themselves being idiots. See youtube. i.e. markedguardian

Handled as Professionally and politically as possible? They could have just requested no more long guns, or even no more open carry, instead the letter said "Do not bring your firearms." No exceptions, no appealing to common sense, no simply asking to be a little less aggressive. No he implemented a soft (very soft) no firearms rule.
SPOOOOOOON!!!

A view our side pushed them too. They wanted to say out of it, but people were idiots and forced their hand. Their policy makes sense from a business standpoint.

Fwiw I think there is a lesson to be learned here.

I understand what you are saying. As Hawk pointed out. This is our doing. Shame on us for using their private business for political purposes and interfering with their business.

We could have been more respectful of their wishes. They should not have to ask. It is our responsibility to respect their rights as much as we are asking them to respect ours.

but it will fall on deaf ears cause why shouldn't they be able to open carry a Barrett 50cal sniper rifle to Sears to get the new Martha Stewart collection pot holders...
Using the lessons I've gleaned from Zombie movies, I would recommend you have at least one round of ammunition per person currently living within a 30 mile radius of your location...

This is a bad argument.

It could easily be said " why shouldn't they be able to open carry a Glock 9mm handgun to Sears to get the new Martha Stewart collection pot holders..." they should be able to. Maybe it's just not always the best idea
:|

I don't open carry, but I recognize people's right to do so. However I think it's a bad idea to open carry an AR-15, right now... As stated by others

exactly Doc.. it is the people OC'ing long rifles IMO that are causing the problems... no one hardly notices a pistol... hence the reference above with the 50cal

You could hang a lot of pot holders on a Barrett 50, sort of the firearm equivalent of a curtain rod.
