Its simply idiotic that whenever a person is killed in a crime involving a firearm, people blame the gun and not so much the person that commited the crime to start with. Purely lack of intelligence

Yep, and a grand total of ZERO people were shot in Starbucks on Tuesday. More guns = more caffeinated people.

Wow and I coulda sworn that would have been a blood bath Im still not hot on the idea of open carry as tool of politics, but maybe it'll get people talking more...thinking more

A most excellent turn of events. It would be great for Starbucks to release sales figures for this V day vs past V Days records. I'm betting that carry advocates made it a record sales day for them.

Tack

"Starbucks allowing guns to be carried in thousands of their stores significantly increases everyone's risk of being a victim of gun violence," Elliot Fineman

That statement right there says alot about the anti gun crowd.. They are a bunch of mindless morons that dont know anything about what they are talking about. Its rediculous how these idiots can be a threat to our 2A rights.

Yes, sales figures would be most interesting. Dare I wonder how many armed robberies were committed in SB's on that day? Assaults? Rapes?

I am a to StarBucks what a chinese slave laborer is to Apple.

If StarBucks told me to leave my guns outside of a 200 mile radius before entering the store I would.

Man, Starbucks is ok in a pinch, but you really need to get yourself a Chemex and some good beans.

Ok, you have my attention. Looks great. I can get some Costa Rica beans at Trader Joes. But how does it work? like a French Press?

just Youtube watched. I just might get one
