Mr. Schultz, I am not a "gun grabber" nor am I a "tea bagger", but I am a man that has patronized your business repeatedly because of the previous stance of allowing open carry in your establishments. Though I do not care for guns, I respect them and they are a Constitutional right. And now you change your mind.
The pro-gun community has done you no harm. That's ok, you are a business and you may do as you wish. And so shall I. I feel far more comfortable in a cafe with people open carrying responsibly than I do a cafe where employees act recklessly out of disregard for their customers (the last two Starbucks I was at, one in Copper Mtn. CO and the other in Rock Springs WY Safeway).
Like I said sir, "that's ok sir", as I can get better tasting coffee cheaper elsewhere. Bringing you money serves no purpose clearly and I thank you for setting me straight on that.
BTW, I started a profile on your Starbucks site, and no matter what I do it's never enough so I could respond to your letter regarding this issue. Well, if you have such disregard for the computer privacy of your clients, then your clients can clearly find a much better corporations to do business with. Having to accept third party cookies as well as unrelated widgets and trackers is completely uncalled for. To the extent sir that I compare it equivalent to asking to see my wife's underwear. Now you HAVE taken the cake. And as such my money spends beautifully anywhere you're not.
