    Starbucks responds

    I heard about a boycott planned against these guys, fired off an attaboy to Starbucks. No hate mail as of yet, but I did get something from somebody there:

    Dear Tom,


    Thank you for contacting Starbucks Coffee Company.


    Thank you for your feedback regarding Starbucks' policy on open carry laws.



    At Starbucks, we deeply respect the views of our customers and recognize that there is significant and genuine passion surrounding the issue of open carry weapons laws. We comply with local laws and statutes in the communities we serve. Our long-standing approach to this issue remains unchanged and we abide by the laws that permit open carry in 43 U.S. states. Where these laws don't exist, openly carrying weapons in our stores is prohibited.



    As the public debate around this issue continues, we encourage customers and advocacy groups from both sides to share their input with their public officials. We are extremely sensitive to the issue of gun violence in our society and believe that supporting local laws is the right way for us to ensure a safe environment for both partners and customers.



    If you have any further questions or concerns that I was unable to address, please feel free to let me know.



    Warm Regards,

    Kelsey F

    Customer Relations

    Starbucks Coffee Company


    Seems as though this was pretty sanitary. I guess they sell to both sides, and have to consider that. Was surprised that they took the time to write me. I thought my pro-gun message was to appear on the wall that the anti-gunners had claimed. Oops. I sure feel bad, heh-heh.

    That's great that they took the time to send something back, and that they accept the law as the law and allow your rights to be exercised.

    Sort of a middle-of-the-road canned statement. If I owned Starbucks I'd probably put out essentially the same. I'll try and patronize them the day of the boycott, but more importantly I'll mention my business that day is particularly for promoting 2A.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    How is Starbucks following local firearm laws considered middle of the road? If it is illegal they don't allow it. If it is legal they do. Sounds pro 2a to me.

    I don't think Starbucks is either pro or anti gun. I think they just want to be left alone and don't want to be any part of this deeply political and heated debate. I do applaud them for not giving in to the anti crowd, but I don't believe that they are on the pro gun side. They are just a business that is trying to make a buck and is going to follow what ever laws that are in place regarding guns in the locals they have their stores. Most business that I've seen are like that, they will just follow the laws regarding guns that apply to their location.

    That's probably correct. It makes good business sense.

    I'm betting this is the same response they send to the critics of their corporate firearms policy. I like that, tell the same truth whoever you are talking to.
