I like Starbucks coffee… or rather I like some of it. Christmas Blend is my favorite and I like the medium roasts though I stay away from their dark roasts because they always taste too smoky to me. Anyway… living in the People’s Republic of California I pretty much don’t think about the issue of guns and coffee so color me “unaware” that Starbucks has a corporate policy of allowing open and concealed carry in states where those laws exist. So if you’re in Texas bring that Glock in the store while you order a Venti black coffee with 3 shots of espresso (my early bird favorite). Of course, this policy does not sit well with the liberal fascists who want to limit our rights to bear arms and ultimately take them away outright. So on February 14 of this year The National Gun Victims Action Council is organizing a boycott of Starbucks.
In response the website The Truth About Guns is sponsoring a BUYcott for February 14 asking people to use $2 bills (Second Amendment — natch) at Starbucks on that day and thank the baristas for honoring America’s right to bear arms. More information about it plus a pretty cool letter to TTAG from Starbucks corporate at the link above. If you’re of a mind go to the bank and grab a couple of $2 bills and go get some coffee that day — and wear your gun.
