The new boycott, which launched Tuesday, aims at persuading Starbucks to join a growing list of retail chains, including Peet's Coffee, California Pizza Kitchen and IKEA, which prohibit guns even when they're otherwise legal.

    But Fineman said boycott advocates made the decision that it was time to step up the pressure. He said the coalition includes about 50 secular anti-gun organizations, faith groups and private citizens touched by gun violence, whose numbers, through a complicated formula, he puts at 14 million.
    I would like to see this formula!

    That's what I always find amusing when reading the articles across the internet. Its the same list of stores every time and its a growing list. I would love to see an article that lists all the stores that don't infringe our rights...

    Peet's Coffee= I never tried their coffee, I guess I never will.
    California Pizza Kitchen= I never heard of this place, I guess their ban of guns is working.
    IKEA= The quality of their merchandise is not good, absolutely nothing their that I want to spend my hard earned money on.

    I don't see the ban of firearms at these places really making me and my family rethink our stance on our 2A rights.

    I've carried into IKEA anyway. My wife and I, probably made 3 or 4 trips shopping for things before we noticed the sign on the slider door. (When its busy, the door is open and the no carry sign is covered).

    This is before I started OC'ing on a more regular basis. Its about the only place around that sells a computer desk thats worth half a **** and doesn't cost a thousand bills. I'd still go there for certain things, but I would simply cover and no one is going to know the wiser.

    I saw that news article as I went out the door this morning. Nice to hear "Open Carry" being said aloud in seattle. Maybe the public should hear more.
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    Interesting thing is the original owners of Starbuck's, now own Peet's. They didn't want to grow the business so Howard bought them out, he saw the potential they didn't or had no desire for.
