....better get ready for Starbucks to say "no more guns". I doubt they will allow their brand to become the soapbox for protestors going back and forth for both sides. The easy choice is just to eliminate it.

Starbuck is not pro gun, they were just smart and reversed their no guns policy and stated they would follow state laws the store was located in.

I don't like their coffee, its too bitter but I'll stop in for a cup on Saturday when I am out.

I do not drink coffee but I could see myself stopping by a Starbucks someplace Saturday for something to drink or eat.

Some times you need to stand up for what you believe in. Money isn't the most important thing in the world.

I'll have to stop in there on Saturday, and bring the wife and kids.

Maybe get some $2 bills before I go.

Guess the wife and I will have coffee there on Saturday

We don't go out for coffee, but this seems to be a good reason.

Starbucks on Saturday morning sounds good to me! I happen to like Starbucks anyway, so no arm-twisting needed here...

Apearently they seem to think that banning guns will stop people from carrying there. There have been two recent specific gun droppings, resulting in gun going off, in Starbucks. Both were in women's purses. Both dropped their purses. Both were untrained in gun safety. One forgot she had a gun in her purse.

Fuel for the fire.

This is good! We should organize it on a large scale. The military used this particular PR technique to very good effect.

The article I read said starbucks announced they would not be changing their policy. I respect that. I REALLY don't like Starbucks but I made an exception a little while ago...

The 2nd amendment tastes soooo good....

Patronized a Starbucks this morning. Didn't see any protesters.

Starbucks will be respected for 'following' the law than to submit to niche groups ultimatums. The anti-gun group is using SB and SBs knows it. Most of the anti's are just using SB to get headlines.

Many of the anti folks I have spoken with that love to trash talk this about SB are shut down pretty quick when you flip it on them and ask "are you wanting SBs to not follow the law? Which laws are they not suppose to follow and which ones are they to follow?" Needless to say, they whimper away with no response.
