    Obviously that's very important, with all the open carriers shooting up everywhere they go.

    While this is not new news (been going on for about a year, IIRC) it is important to notice that they just keep hammering away at the same spot. I guess the theory behind that is that if they keep hitting it eventually it will weaken and break.

    While I would dearly love to see businesses go after them for tortious interference with commerce http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tortious_interference I also understand why they do not. There is more business to lose by actually slapping at the gnat than by ignoring it.

    The irony of their actions is that they all claim to fear shootouts by the evil gun-toters who cannot be trusted to maintain self control - and yet they plunk themselves down right in the middle of all those evil gun-toters who cannot be trusted to maintain self control and verbally annoy and abuse them to the point that the evil gun-toters actually maintain self control. It is all so confusing - it makes my head hurt.

    stay safe.

    While they may lose some customers for respecting the rights of all, they have also gained customers. At worst it has been a wash because all kinds of meetups have been scheduled at Starbucks as a result of their stance on OC.

    BTW, these moronic "moms" need to know that their children are safer around a lawfully armed citizen. Mass shooters don't go to Starbucks and kill children. They go to Sandy Hook, where there are no carriers.

    instead of the liberal words of gun control. let's call it what it is gun infringement. this would be far more accurate and maybe get the sleeping awake
    Luke 22:36 ; 36Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

    i you call a CHP a CCW then you are really stupid. period.

    $2 Bills for 2A

    This is why I use $2 bills when I purchase things at Starbucks and other establishments that support 2nd Amendment rights.
    The bills make them curious (most have never seen one) and gives an opportunity to start a conversation.

    Here's an idea so that we can get an inkling of how well the $2 symbol is working. Write an "A" next to the 2 in the lower left corner of the bill, so that it says "2A." Just that one corner. Then spend the bill. See if you can spot any bills passed by others.

    This is an old issue and with only "611 likes", I don't think I'm going to worry about this. If you go to the Starbucks Facebook page, for every one of these folks posting their "I won't do business" with you threat, they get about 30, 2A folks that thank them for honoring the constitution or their policy on following the local state law.

    If you want to do something....go post a support comment here.

    https://www.facebook.com/Starbucks

    Or go to their facebook page and leave a few hundred comments here...there's not a lot of positive feedback to this website.

    A recycling of "guns and alcohol don't mix." Substitute caffeine.
    They're just upset that they can't go support and celebrate other liberal causes without seeing guns.

    Outstanding idea, discrete but poignant!
    Let's see how many bills we can get in circulation with 2A on them.
    Getting them back might be tricky, I've seen cashiers exchange $1 bills for the $2 bills because they've never seen them before.

    Ask for $2 bills anytime your change is over $2. Ask your bank for $2 bills. Even if they don't have them normally, if they have a customer who wants them, they may try to obtain them from the Fed. (I just learned that they have to be ordered from the Fed in $2000 bricks.)

    My wife works for a credit union in Montgomery. If I can't get them from my CU here in Ohio, I'll ask her to bring me some when she gets up here in a little over a week for my son's wedding.

    If the Fed gets wind of what we are doing, they'll probably stop printing $2 bills and pull them out of circulation.

    2A advocates will make the currently-flopping $2 bill a huge success!

    It Appears......

    that you can order bulk sheets of $2 bills from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing

    you can order in sheets from 4 to 32 notes, of course, you'll have to pay shipping and processing.....

    http://www.moneyfactorystore.gov/2cu...testsheet.aspx

    of course considering they want 100 dollars for 64 dollars of bills... it's hardly a bargin, still if you can't find 'em somewhere else it's an option..

    Hmmmm.....You save them the effort of slicing up the sheets into individual bills, and they charge you for the privilege of doing it yourself. Yep. That's government for ya!

    Gun control groups going after companies that "allow open carry"

    Giving all due credit to March Hare, who started us down this path, I am going to start a thread that is going to probably draw wider appeal.

    This $2A bill idea has huge potential.

    Re: Gun control groups going after companies that "allow open carry"

    The "2A" bill I do not recall hearing of before, and is a great idea. I'll start doing that here in my area.

    Using the $2 bill to show support though has been around since at least the beginning of last year that I know of. It was successful, to a degree, in practice.

    Can't link from here, but as a cite please search "Starbucks supports 2A" on Nevadashooters.com.
