I know many businesses locally that do not care about CC in their businesses, but do tend to frown on Open-Carry due to the soccer-moms and such that also do their business there. So, maybe this will be a lesson to us all.....common-sense cannot be legislated.
    You do realize the gun rallies were in response to anti gun boycotting...would you rather there be no opposition so they could have sent out this letter two years ago?

    Did you ever go to one of the rallies?

    So you are happy how things turned out. The rally has been labeled in the news as crazies that were put in their place by the company that never supported them in the first place much to the glee of the anti groups. To use a anti gun phrase, common sense said this wasn't a good idea.

    But if you would like to explain why this is in our favor, please fill us in.
    Time to add FireMarshall Bill to the block list.

    Starbucks wont miss my dime. When I realized how garbage their coffee was I quit going. I have not been in over 10 years, not even for hot coco.
    My way is not better, it is just mine, your way is not better, it is just yours.
    Carry what your comfortable with, there is no "Supergun" Carry how your comfortable, open or concealed, so you have it with you when you need it

  5. Just a few comments by an ignorent LEO. Policy dictates most offices & departments as to what, where, and how LE carries off duty. It dictates that the sidearm be concealed in a safe manner so as not to draw attention or create undue emotional reactions. Many rank and file strongly support concealed carry by law abiding citizens. Colorado Sheriff's are taking the new firearm restrictions to court. While I open carry in the back country and the small towns when I stop to eat after a day of hunting or when on duty in full uniform. Colorado is a shall issue state where only a few large metropolitan areas consistently slow or deny a concealed permit. But as a deputy, when approaching a citizen with an openly carried firearm, I have a responsibility to the citizens of my community and my family to go home safe at the end of my shift. If civilians carry in case of the improbable 1% of the SHTF incident, then how else but in a cautious manner by getting ahead of the decision loop would you have LE respond to the situation? I'm always ready to apologize if my actions seem extreme but reality demands I prepare for that improbable 1% situation. And like any other occupation, there are those who's reasons for taking this type of employment is for its abusive oppertunities. But I sincerly believe we try to weed out these individuals ourselves. Like any responsible citizen carrying concealed, I keep mine in case I meet a former "client" who still disagrees with my interpertation of thier actions. So please cut some slack to the local LE if they approach you, be honest, resist furtive movements, and if all else fails, it can always be settled in civil court.

    What the hell does this have to do with STARBUCKS?!?
    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.

    Ten seconds of google searching reveals some people you all should be pissed at. What's the mentality of someone who thinks that Starbucks would appreciate you taking a selfie with your gun in their store?:

    If I was the CEO I would have posted every store in the franchise the day this happened

    I'm indifferent, as this is private property, they can do what they want. I'm happy gun owners put up a fight, even if the outcome was going to be the same either way.

    Would you of been happier if gun owners didn't do anything, and this letter was sent out two years ago? Could you explain how that would be in our favor? Did you attend any of the Starbucks appreciation days? Was it filled with "crazy gun nuts"?

  9. A few years ago two thug brothers walked into a small coffee shop in my city in the morning. They pulled guns and started pistol wiping everyone, they took cell phones and money also a laptop computer from a young girl. No one was armed so they just had to take the beating and loss's. cops got them later but what did that do to help? If your means anything to one,they will take steps to protect ones life.

    It could be just a troll comment...but the phone app has a bug that has pulled other quoted text from threads in didn't sub forums on me before, and posted my response in a completely different forum too...I had to go find it and move it.

    There are no Starbucks at Pine Ridge and I’m not driving to Chadron to hang out with a bunch of armed Caucasians historically that doesn’t work out too well for people like me.
