Starbucks No Gun Policy

by Georgia Concealed Carry on September 25, 2013 · 1 comment

Starbucks appreciation day?  While this was a good idea in theory, the end results were very damaging to the gun community.  This is a perfect example of what happens when gun owners aren’t mindful of “appearance” when they go out into the community.  While Starbucks wishes to respect your gun rights, they are also a business and need to make money, which is difficult if customers are uncomfortable or scared by the appearance of armed people around them.

In an open letter to Americans, CEO of Starbucks Coffee Company Howard Schultz says:

Few topics in America generate a more polarized and emotional debate than guns. In recent months, Starbucks stores and our partners (employees) who work in our stores have been thrust unwillingly into the middle of this debate. That’s why I am writing today with a respectful request that customers no longer bring firearms into our stores or outdoor seating areas.

A link to the full letter can be found below.

Starbucks is the latest big corporation to add a “NO Firearms” to it’s policies, however this time it’s slightly different because they have no intentions on enforcing this policy.  Starbucks has always chosen to follow local laws by permitting “open carry” in starts where it is allowed and prohibit in states where it is not.

We recently came across a video by Military Arms Channel on YouTube that sums this topic up very well.
