    It should be noted that this was a corporate owned restaurant and there was no sign on the door prohibiting open carry and starbucks corporate released a statement allowing open carry in their restaurants.

    Their contact information is:

    11302 Euclid Avenue, Cleveland - (216) 229-0749

    No. The manager did not follow company policy.

    O I see. Just write a letter to the manager and to the company to see if you can get it resolved.

    No doubt,

    what was your favorite part? The long term repetitive close ups of the inside of his hand, all the upside down stuff inside the store, the loud machines,the difficulty in hearing the manager or was it the first 5.5 of the7.5 minutes of video that could have been cut out yet was included but showed nothing worth watching?



    I know in some ways its wrong of me to knock the video but for some reason I just help it on this one. It more than likely was the first 5.5 minutes that did it more than anything else. Seriously though, it would have been better to include just a couple clips of the walking out and could have used text to narrate what was actually happening and being said. It could have been cut down to a 45-60 second video as well.

    If I cut it down then people would say I'm not telling the whole story or lying.

    The Starbucks manager is intentionally lying about the bank issue. Write a letter to corporate about being kicked out of their establishment.

    a starbucks kicked you out??

    there is no possible way in h*ll that the manager does not know about the firearms policy with all the recent media attention starbucks has gotten.
    not a lawyer, dont take anything i say as legal advice.

    my favorite part was fast-forwarding to the end.


    but I do see your point FF, if you had edited the first 4-5 minutes off, then we would all think you were lying, cause NO ONE could get kicked out of Starbucks after last months media blitz of their corporate policy.

    So, no OC guns allowed because Starbucks connected to a Bank, eh.

    Another dumb female @ minimum wage making up law?

    I don't know the exact location of the OP, but it would seem that if this Starbucks is on university property, then he has to OC to be legal.

    It's not actually a university, it's just one of those weird names they give to things cities spend too much money on: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/University_Circle

    Dayton was a long way to drive, (2:50) for me, for a bowl of chilie. I did meet a lot of good people and I wouldn't mind a short drive (maybe a hour) just to go there and makethe point. What say you? Maybe a walk around town, or the block.

    Um, you do know that Starbucks has a no video policy, and has another policy allowing gun carry if legal, right??

    Seems to me you are bating this store (assuming you knew the above) - please do not cause problems for Starbucks - if people are noticing you and your gun, you are likley doing somthing wrong - carry discreetly, be discreet, blend in. That's the mission.

    I never heard of a "no video" policy, anybody else?

    How do you bate a store by running your video in the palm of your hand. FF777 has never been known for good video. Its his cell phone. He could of been texting. I don't understand why so many people think hes out looking for trouble.

    I've seen you (Mike) and John on video (TV). People say that about you 2 also. Just out looking for trouble...... I , for one, don't think you and John are looking for trouble any more than FF777 does. JMO

    Someone had posted on OFCC forums that FF777 was having computer problems & can't post, buta manager talked to FF777 & said things where cleared up and OC is ok there now.

    Sounds like a happy ending

    Let me clarify... I would very happily drive up if Starbucks said "no, sorry, we won't do anything about it". Thankfully, they responded positively and that wasn't necessary.

    On May 7th at 13:02 I received a call from the Regional Manager Dennis Hodson (216) 533-6932. He said he looked into the matter and said open carry is legal and as long as I'm following the law I can open carry into Starbucks. He also said he notified the manager at the University Circle Starbucks about their corporate policy. I will be open carrying there this weekend and will report back with my experiences.

    Good job with the positive results from your encounter.

    As far as a no-video policy, I don't know how you could have been expected to know that if there isn't a notice on the entrance. I can't see how someone can really be critical of you for that.
