They know that they will please some of their customers or potential customers and repel others. They make decisions based on the bottom line, not some moral philosophy. While Corporations have the right of expression, they lack human qualities of introspection and the sense of right and wrong. They only worship the bottom line.
I dunno bout that, Chick Fil A made a moral stand and did pretty good for doing so! Mc D's and The Dunk made good choices corporate wise!

Not, we do not welcome guns in our establishment. Jerk knee reactions get you in worse trouble.
After seeing pictures showing people open carrying AKs and ARs in Starbucks I then understood why management was getting nervous. Just my opinion. I am extremely pro second amendment but I feel that this was taking things a little too far.

I gotta think that Dunkin Donuts is pretty well policed at most times.
