Starbucks Boycott
 
Sacramento Valley Shooting Center
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.

Starbucks has been on the banned list in my house for a while now. They do not support our Armed Forces or our 2nd Amendment rights.

Do not question my 2nd Amendment Right to own a gun, I won't question your stupidity not to.

That's the while point of the anti gunners boycott. I addressed this myself in the other thread on this subject. I had to retract my statement regarding the same after I did a double check.

Apparently at one point, some starbucks did ban carry in their stores, but it is not a corporate policy.

I boycott starbucks 'cause their coffee is horrible! :( When I was working, I drank a lot of coffee all over east Texas. I realize a place can have bad days & good days, so I gave them two chances at two different starbucks. :eek:

I found better coffee at mcdonalds & a few two-bit convenience stores. Of course, I guess if you doctor it up with all that sugar & other flavors they offer, can't tell it.:)

As I said in the other thread, this isn't so much an issue of what you think about Starbucks as it is blocking an attempt by the rabid anti-gunners to push their agenda on business owners. In this case, it's this stupid anti-gun group that trying to trample our 2nd amendment rights, not Starbucks

If we can come up with a plan to get ALL of the anti-gun grabbers together,we can have a convention on my 40 acres. You can dig a big damn hole on 40 acres.

I don't know much about the issue of Starbucks and gun rights but I can get a senior coffee at McDonalds for 63 cents, and it is good coffee. Nothing personal, but I think this is better than paying a couple of bucks for the same thing at Starbucks. I have been fighting the battle for gun rights since the 1960s and will continue to do so.
