    We need to support Starbucks on 2-14

    There is an anti-gun group that is Going to boycott Starbucks on feb.14th for their policy on firearms. Us gun owners need to make this a big sell day for Starbucks, so people understand they will have major support if they support us! I for one never drink coffee, but I am going To stop in on this day and give them some money for something. Please everyone do the same, we must support those that support us.

    I hate coffee. I'm going for some hot chocolate! Everybody likes hot chocolate, right?
    Good point about making sure we tell them why we're there.

    Feb. 14 is Starbucks Appreciation Day


    Written by Philip Mulivor


    Thursday, 26 January 2012 09:59


    Some fringe-group kooks known as the National Gun Victims Action Council have called for a boycott of Starbucks on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14. They've targeted Starbucks because the popular coffee shop chain has steadfastly refused to impose firearms restrictions above and beyond the gun laws that already exist at their 18,890 locations.

    To ensure that the boycott gains no traction, many blogs serving the gun-rights community have designated Feb. 14 as Starbucks Appreciation Day. Please visit Starbucks on Valentine's Day and buy the fanciest item you can. They serve a lot more than coffee.

    If we do this right, Starbucks will be looking forward to future anti-rights shenanigans for a guaranteed bump in sales.

    And if you can, pay with your purchase with $2 bills. (You can get them at your bank). This denomination is rarely used, and will get the attention of the Staff at Starbucks, AND the "2" is symbolic of our support for the 2nd Amendment.

    Cash drawers full of $2 bills at the end of the day in every Starbucks in the country would get their attention that's for sure. If you owned a business, who would you listen to for setting policy--a bunch of loud, disruptive, ranting protesters trying to convince your customers to not patronize your shop, or a bunch of quiet, polite, law-abiding people who calmly came in to your shop, purchased your product, and went about their business?

    Just sayin'...
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

    Pay with two dollar bills. Thomas Jefferson, Mr. Liberty himself. If Starbucks sees a huge influx of payment in two dollar bills, people in general, and Starbucks management in particular, are sure to notice.

    I feel this might be a silly question, but can you get $2 dollar bills at any bank? I would like to make my purchase this way as well, and my oldest daughter would probably enjoy having a few to play with. 4 years old and already crazy about money!! I must say though, she is much better at saving than her mother is.

    Usually banks have $2 bills on hand, but I wouldn't expect them to have $200 worth. Either gutshot lucked out, or had his bank have the money on hand.

    You can get a coffee for less than $2, I am sure you can spare $2. If not, I'm sure someone here would be willing to buy you a cup. It's not about the money, it's about showing support.

    I hope everyone realizes that a single day (to show 'support' for Starbucks) won't exactly fit the ($2) bill.

    The boycott *STARTS* on 2/14 and has no specific end date.

    Thus, a frequent (weekly?) visit might be of significance, especially paying with the $2 bill.
    I open carry because if a bad guy attacks me anyway, I am best prepared to respond appropriately, with minimal fuss, and my bearing of a firearm is not infringed by having to lift my shirt, pull back my jacket, or unzip some pouch. Forcing people to carry concealed is an infringement on the right to keep and bear arms.

    Well, this morning I strapped on my Ruger SR40C , and walked into my local Starbucks this morning to buy Hot Chocolate. The counter salesman noticed my firearm, and I told him why I was there to support Starbuck on this day. He said, Very Cool! My buddy and I was thinking of doing it later today when I get off.
    I told him he should to support our 2nd Amendment rights, and to show support for places like Starbuck's who are not afraid of the Anti gunners who want to disarm us Law abiding citizens.
    All in all a good experience. I did pay with a 2 dollar bill, and told him why, so he could tell others. I also told him of this forum, so that he could join and talk with other OC people.
    I plan on doing it again when I get off work.
    Hope everyone's day is as productive as mine was.
    Stay Safe!

    Lexington Starbucks

    I stopped at the Starbucks on Versailles Road after work and got two drinks and asked to speak to the manager, he said that he had not heard anything about the boycot. I explained that I was a gun and open carry supporter and that I was there to spend some money because of the stand that Starbucks has taken to allow OC. The manager was very nice, was interested, and said that he would tell the main manager about it in the morning. Apparently the boycott is a non-event, he said that their business is good. I plan on getting a couple hundred dollars in two-dollar bills this Friday when I'm off work. Hey, here's an idea, why not get all our cash turned into two-dollar bills and spend them everywhere in support of the second amendment?

    I got the exact same reaction.

    After visiting the starbucks in ashland I can say that I haven't missed out on much. That was my 1st time in a starbucks and probably my last. The smell of coffee was soo strong that it almost knocked me down. I don't like coffee so I opted instead to go with a strawberry smoothie. That was a bad decision. But anyone who almost sorta stands up for our rights is worth doing business with, so I might be back.

    Got the same thing in Frankfort. They were unaware of a boycott but did know that gun supporters were coming in.

    Conspiracy theory: Starbucks orchestrated the "boycott" because we, the gun rights supporters, was the lowest customer base (aside from circus performers of course). They know that we take our rights seriously, so we will support a business that doesn't support our anti-group.

    Was a bit disappointed last evening, when the wife and I bought our drinks at Starbucks, and she commented she'd never seen so many $2 bills in one place before (I gave her 4). I guess not many other Bowling Green folks were paying with $2 bills, or letting them know why they were there that day. Oh well, I'll be back by in the future with more $2 bills, the coffee was actually pretty good and only cost about 2 magazine's worth out of my 1911!

    You got anything solid to support this theory?
