The Bay Area Open Carry group tested out the waters (or should I saw coffee) at a California Starbucks.
"We're just a bunch of citizens exercising their Second Amendment rights, which if you don't use them, you'll probably lose them," Gus Konstantaras with East Bay Open Carry told ABC7.
When asked Saturday if they had a policy on open carrying of guns, Starbucks said in a statement, "Starbucks supports the federal, state and local laws of the communities in which we do business."

It's getting attention across the nation. We all should make a point to gather local 2A advocates in our respective states and plan for a gathering to test the waters or coffee...
Any takers in MA?
You can give peace a chance alright..

Open carried into Starbucks this morning in AZ...which isn't a big deal I guess, but fun to report.
I open carry almost everywhere, Cabela's, Albertson's, Safeway, Walgreens, Subway, Chipotle, I could go on. Exceptions: the bank, Costco (sign posted), church (because it's at a school?). Otherwise, anything goes. Rarely do I get a second look. I seem to be treated slightly more politely sometimes, but otherwise it's nothing at all.
I think every state should secede from Washington, DC, then we'll have them surrounded.
