    I wouldn't go that far, but I do thank them for setting a responsible example for other corporations to consider.

    Welcome to the board. You'll see varying opinions on here just like anywhere else. I always suggest taking it all in and forming your own opinion. And remember the internet is not serious business.

    The Greenwood area is (a middle blue-collar community), located about 15 min. north of Seattle.

    Thanks for asking,

    I think I responed to the wrong check box. In fear of repeating myself, Greenwood neighborhood is located north and lightly west of I-5 from Seattle (about 15 min. drive). It takes us about 25 min to drive to the Kenmore range.

    Starbucks didn't do anything of the sort, they chose the path most inline with their fiscal survival, that's all. It wasn't some grand gesture, because none is required on an issue such as this, for a corporation such as them.

    You have to remember that the overwhelming customer base of the three company's your talking about are in California, and they know the overwhelming liberal sentiment of that population.

    Starbucks has no such limitations to worry about with 16000+ stores world wide, any other policy but "we follow the law, please leave us out of your politics" would have done serious damage to their bottom line.

    It was a comment largely in jest (i am a humorous fellow),as we have had a lot of media coverage resulting in a lot more people being aware of, and accepting open carry. Maybe i should have said "god bless the Brady Campaign" as it was their monster stomping and flamboyant wailing that actually got us the attention

    - hehe - it was really just a light hearted comment.

    i think my phrase of "starbucks can take the easy way out" was kinda in cheek too,,
    im trying to imply that following the law is the most direct route to make the policy that needs the least justification. and ultimatly satisifies the most of the rashional citizens.
    the 3 california companies are going to suffer lost costumers and brad press, even in that liberal state and just may decide to change their tune in time.

    Your probably right in the long run scheme of things, but that's not how they are interpreting it for the now.

    im only saying what i think the reasoning for the policy might be!

    do you actually have some personnal insight to the corperate policy wonks at starbucks?

    did they tell YOU why they do what they do?

    Thats all I am doing too. See my response below for why.

    do you actually have some personnal insight to the corperate policy wonks at starbucks?

    Only what they have already said to everyone, that they don't want to be put in the middle. I interpret that to mean they are not interested in supporting or not supporting the 2A, only supporting their bottom line, same as the other three companys in California.

    did they tell YOU why they do what they do?

    See answer to #2
    The three other companys in California are just doing the same thing as Starbucks, protecting their bottom line in the ways they are most influenced by doing so.

    When your bread and butter clientele are located in an anti-gun state, and you are told by an anti-gun state lobbying firm that your mostly anti-gun clientele are going to stop spending their money at your business (during an economic slump) if you don't ban guns. Well....I'm sure you see where that line of thought is going.

    Starbucks doesn't have that kind of worry, and in-fact would be hurt worse by taking a side. Hence, their response of "leave us out of it".

    Hope that clarifies where I'm coming from.

    Greenwood was annexed to Seattle 4JAN1954. Maybe northland47 goes back farther than we thought.
