    I know we've had AR-15 OCers, but rocket launchers? Good grief.

    Cross-draw thigh holster, for those who want to have the most complicated draw ever.

    Still seeing prejudice from the anti's...wonder if it will ever stop.

    The non stop left wing crap from the LA Times, is why their readership has dropped dramatically in the last 10 years. It has become a rag of propaganda for the bleeding heart gun haters who can only go around whining in the City during daylight, as the criminals in Los Angeles own the streets at night.

    To get the 8 for 1 special, a rocket launcher IS required.

    I thought it was kinda funny.

    Remember, like Heinlein said, an armed society is a polite society.

    I think its funny. ButTed just missed the mark (so to speak). Itake offense to "loopy". What the hell! I'm a right wing tea party gun nut andam proud of it.

    If anything Starbucks should be offended, theguy behind the counter looks like the "loopy" one. Doesn't say much for Starbucks' hiring practices.

    Well, they were polite to me. I wrote in and thanked them on their dot com.

    Hey, maybe someone on the boards can do a cartoon with the Brady campaign as an organized crime syndicate putting the "squeeze" onrestaurants doing business with supporters of the US constitution...The old horse head, kiss of death, Godfather-type symbolism.

    Or... a few thuggish criminals robbing a store and beating a person, with Management thanking the Brady Campaign for helping them make a gun-free and safe environment for their custoemrs.

    Gun control isn't about guns -- it is about control.

    OR. . . A chain of Brady members locking hands keeping armed citizens from entering a convenience store while it is being held up.

    I received the exact same reply from Starbucks. I'm sure we're not alone.

    It means that Starbucks, as a corporation, does not have a firearms policy regarding their customers....other than 'please do not rob us'.

    They defer to established state and local laws......which allows UOC inside their affiliates, for law-abiding persons.

    At this time, Starbucks is gun friendly.

    yeah me too... cause I think that means... if LE's say... don't allow it, Starbucks might change their mind. But luckily (at least currently) the laws are on our side.

    I think they're smarter and more experienced than that. But it perhaps could happen. I believe what they mean by "counsel of law enforcement" is by taking instructions, suggestions, and observations under consideration as I would expect anyone or any companyto do (consideration is merely being open to the idea, but you don't have to follow it).

    I truly hope that is the case. I'm honestly not to worried about it at the moment, thus far Starbucks has been great to not hinder "our" cause.

    This almost makes me wish I had bought a coffee and taken a picture at the Starbucks located in the Forbidden City (Beijing, China).

    I would not be so bold as to say that Starbucks is "gun-friendly" as much they are just not gun-unfriendly.

    Exactly the point I was trying to make. They're at least not unfriendly at the moment... who knows about tomorrow. It's not like they are going to stand up and announce they are Pro-2A and start helping with the movement. Though, we can always hope
