Thread: Starbucks' CEO makes a "respectful request that customers no longer bring firearms."

    Because it's only a request. My job as a consumer is to get what I want. If I get what I want and can still carry my gun, then that's all I'm looking for. When they ban, that's when I stop supporting them.

    Wow Chen, I don't know how to interpret this, are you seeing yourself as superior or has all the OC vs CC crap talk changed you as a person. Maybe I have spent too much time away from this site but I am finding it more difficult to value the opinions that most people share. The calmer members like Tuckers Mom and yourself have either gone away or become seemingly always angry. Maybe I am reading this wrong and need to find a new site to spend my time.

    Of the "open carriers" in these photos, the guy with the shotgun is the idiot. His version of open carry (unslung and ready to fire) would be like walking around with your pistol in your hand. The others were at least slung/holstered, or in their car and not in the store.

    If I was the CEO I would have posted every store in the franchise the day this happened
    I don't drink coffee no have I ever been in a Starbucks. I said a year ago that if people kept pushing something would happen. I don't care who OC or CC. when you go into a place carrying a rifle or a shot gun that is not normal.

    First, I tried to edit my response to clarify my message, but it seems you got my first draft. In either case, the message is close enough.

    Second, never forgetting the hardships is not racist. But a Jew who believes all Germans today are still Nazis, would be.

    That’s very true but a Jew that believes that Germans today aren’t capable of doing everything the Nazi’s did or an Asian who doesn’t think the American government would open up Manzanar relocation center again is a fool

    No superiority or anger in my post. I probably have changed though, I am have a harder time valuing opinions of most gun owners. I posted this same question in a twin thread as this one, that had another thought: gun owners who normally do not carry besides sport shooting or hunting.

    Here's my logic behind my question:

    A main argument from concealed carriers against open carry is that we are waving the gun around in the air. Makes me believe if a person who doesn't normally open carry, wouldn't see a problem with posing with their firearm in public such as those pictures.

    Pro gun activist brandishing firearms has not been an act committed by open carriers, my opinion is based on personal experience. Nearly all the open carriers I've talked with have a decent grasp on the laws, especially concerning brandishing.

    Anyone, from any culture, who thinks any government or person, doesn't have the capacity of extreme violence is a fool. That is no excuse to stereotype though, especially to stereotype based on extremists.

    Sir; I believe on the 2nd page was a specific comment about being hasseled by ignorant law enforcement for open and possibly concealed carry. It relates to Starbucks as the above comment of ignorant LE was made in this thread in how individuals choose to display firearms. There are specific reasons on how to approach an unknown individual with a firearm and I attempted to point it out. And that many LE are strong supporters of the 2nd Amendment. To paint LE with that broad of a statement only helps the gun banners.

    No sir, I'm not a troll. Firearm enthusiast, collector, competitor, NRA Life Member, new to this forum, and a Level 1 Peace Officer who attempted to dispell the ignorant law enforcement comment in relation to open and concealed carry mention in this thread with a perspective of the other side who is just a strongly believes in the 2nd Amendment and the entire Constitution for all.
