    Earlier today I mass messaged my friends in hopes of showing Starbucks support for their allowance of CA open carriers. If you're on FB please join their group and add a quick note, something like "Thanks for supporting the 2nd Amendment". I also sent Starbucks a note on their site...maybe something you all can consider.

    Thanks!

    And if you want to add me on FB search by my name:

    For now yes.

    In a nutshell, the open carriers are demonstrating in CA by OC'ing unloaded guns, which is legal. Peet's coffee and other places have posted signs forbidding them....so far Starbucks has not, despite intense pressure from the Brady Campaign and the usual suspects. If we are vociferous and respectful, we can maintain that I think. The alternative, if they were to cave, might be signs corporate-wide which would affect those states where signs carry weight (unlike WA thankfully). At this point in this day alone we've had 10 or so post up on FB thanking them for their support....

    I think this is an important fight, and in addition to the notes through the starbucks.com site a good showing on FB wouldn't be bad. A lot of people poopoo FB, but FB activity has been mainstream news COUNTLESS times these past few months.
