    Cross off StarBuck$

    If you pull it, you use it. If you pull it and you don't use it, you've done some thing wrong and you might not get another chance. Think about it before you pack it!

    Chief Executive Howard Schultz said in an open letter to customers late Tuesday that Starbucks Appreciation Day events "disingenuously portray Starbucks as a champion of 'open carry.' To be clear: we do not want these events in our stores."

    The coffee chain did not, however, issue an outright ban on guns in its nearly 7,000 company-owned cafes, saying this would potentially require staff to confront armed customers.

    Schultz said more people had been bringing guns into Starbucks shops over the last six months, prompting confusion and dismay among some customers and employees.

    "I'm not worried we're going to lose customers over this," he told Reuters. "I feel like I've made the best decision in the interest of our company."

    ***********************
    They don't want "events", but did not ban open carry yet.

    Looks like we need to contact them and tell them that they will LOSE customers, starting with me!

    " We believe that gun policy should be addressed by government and law enforcementónot by Starbucks and our store partners."

    So his position is cops are to enforce his own company policies.

    interesting perspective.

    Better to leave your firearm in your car so someone can break into the car in the parking lot and steal the firearm.
    This happens more than we know

    Here's an excellent video response to Starbucks "new policy".
