    Once again there will be a Starbucks Appreciation Day to support their support of the 2nd Amendment! Again on Feb 14th 2013. I will support them by buying coffee that day and paying with $2 bills!

    Last year when Peets Coffee in California banned carry in their shops Starbucks let it be known that they follow state law in whatever state the store is located. Corporate policy is to allow carry both concealed and open.

    Starbucks refuses to support are troops in the middle east so I refuse to support them.

    It is no so much that they support it, just that they do not oppose it. The stance they took was basically no stance, just follow the local law. A lot of people took this for support for the 2nd amendment and either boycotted or supported them for it.

    I believe "Following State Law" is what we want business's to do in regards to carry. That's why they have MY support.

    Snopes solves all problems.
    It is good to see a company who thinks that the general public doesn't need more rules than the ones provided by the government. Which is too many to begin with.

    The anti-gun nuts noticed that Starbucks allowed open and concealed carry in their stores, they organized a boycott to try and force Starbucks to adopt a killing zone "gun free stores" policy. Starbucks refused to knuckle under.

    I totally agree, and they have my support as well. But there is a difference between following state law and supporting the 2nd amendment. If tomorrow they banned open carry in a state, Starbucks would not be up in arms demanding things, they would just keep serving coffee. Nothing wrong with that, but it would be a different reaction than a company that supports the 2nd amendment. That's all. Not wrong, just different.

    But they didn't cave in to the demands for a "free killing zone" by the anti-gun nuts either. Guess you could read that as a "neutral position". Personally I think not caving in is a win for us though.

    Starbucks makes decent hot chocolate.
    I order small, medium, or large.
    I can't get myself to say those hippie crap names.

    2nd amendment so $2 bills. That way Stabucks gets the idea of how many people support their stand against the anti-gun nuts.
