    Support Starbucks on feb.14th

    Anti-gun folks are going to boycott Starbucks on feb. 14th. Let's show our support for their firearm policies, and stop by and buy something, even if we never stop at Starbucks. I plan on telling them why I am there, and hopefully we can make the anti's look like lost causes!

    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."

    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.

    Late to the thread, but heard about this on the Military Jeepers forum.

    Wife, kid and I all hit the local Starbucks, the wife and I Open Carrying.

    Been back there a few times since.

    We made sure to tell them why we came in, and to please let their manager/regional manager know.

    We weren't the only ones either! Ran into 3 other people we know, and saw 2 others who were OC while getting their 'Joe'





    I know, I'm ugly. But ugly people can carry too! LOL

    Been living in ND since November 2012 and moved here from Western Washington. Starbucks doesn't and won't take sides on the 2nd amendment. However, their policy is to go by state and federal regulations and I definitely respect that. They also don't want to be thrown in the middle of it. They, however, do except all customers. Putting some info out there about me, I've been with the OCDO communty since 01/2010 and been apart of several events in Washington. I'm not new to the whole thing and I also support Starbuck in not playing down to the to the gun grabbers like the other places have done. Only once at the beginning I was talked to by LE and had to educate them. Been kicked out of a few places.
