    Tomorrow morning around 8AM I'll be enjoying a cup of coffee while open carrying at the Starbucks in Downtown St Johns. I have to work shortly after, but if you're nearby feel free to join and/or come by and say hi! I'll be wearing an NWFA t-shirt and carrying my Dan Wesson CCO.

    Yesterday it was to counter a boycott by an anti-gun group who feels Starbucks allowing people to open carry is wrong. They called for their supporters to boycott Starbucks and donate the money to them instead. Not a huge fan, but the wife and I gave them some business.

    Starbucks has asked both sides repeatedly not to involve them in this debate.

    I'll be respecting their wishes.

    Well, I want to thank all of you who made a battleground out of Starbuck's in spite of their repeated requests for neutrality.

    By forcing the issue, and pushing them to take a stand, you lost the moral high ground.

    Well done.

    P.S. What are you going to do with all those idiotic stickers and T-shirts?

    Take it out to the shooting range, put that T-shirt on the man size target and practice closed range shooting. Left hand on chess to push the target back while the right hand pull out the CW do double taps on the abdomen. Remove the T shirt to see where the bullet holes :)

    If I do this couple time a week I will be very efficient with my carrying tool!

    Starbucks coffee is over roasted anyhow. With their new request I have one more reason to spend my $ elsewhere.

    They didn't say don't bring guns in Starbucks, they just asked politely that people don't open carry, and like Jammer said, it was after repeated attempts to not be dragged into the gun debate and have people from one side or another picketing their stores or harassing their workers.

    I completely understand why he finally had to take a stand. He wants his coffee shops to be a place where people can relax. It's not a "Gun Free Zone" and he didn't say they were banned there, he just wants his people to not be involved in politics.

    Every person that freaks out over that request is the very reason the request was made.

    How would you like the gun debate from both sides happening at your dinner table every night?

    Yup, exactly.

    Starbuck's doesn't want to be in the gun debate.

    Do you get it now?

    And it's a smart Spam bot. Frankly I am really surprised it hasn't been reported. If you look at the other threads it's posted it keeps offering assisted living in Australia.
