    Poll Should Starbuck Allow Guns In Their Stores???

    Group lobbies to ban guns from Starbucks | NorthWest Cable News | Business News

    SEATTLE - The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence is launching a petition campaign to convince coffee giant Starbucks to ban guns in its stores across the country.
    "We urge Starbucks to respect the rights of the vast majority of its customers, who seek to take their families into its stores without facing the intimidating presence of openly carried guns,” said Paul Helmke, President of the Brady Campaign.
    Two weeks ago, after gun enthusiasts began targeting California restaurants for meetings, carrying their handguns out in the open, executives with Peet’s Coffee and Tea and California Pizza Kitchen announced they would exercise their private property right to prohibit the “open carry” of guns in retail locations. Concerned citizens in California started urging a third chain, Starbucks, to similarly prohibit the “open carry” of firearms in its retail establishments, but Starbucks rebuffed their requests, according to the Brady Campaign.
    Meantime, gun advocates are urging gun owners to frequent Starbucks stores and carry their weapons if they so please. John Pierce, co-founder of OpenCarry.org, says he applauds the company's policy to serve all lawful gun carriers worldwide.
    "It is refreshing to see yet one more company not requiring law abiding gun owners to go to the back of the bus," says Pierce. “Importantly, Starbucks joins most American corporations in deciding not to discriminate against lawful gun carriers.”
    Starbucks has responded only with a written statement saying, "The safety of our customers and partners is a paramount concern. We have existing security protocols in place to handle situations related to safety in our stores. We will continue to adhere closely to local, state and federal laws and the counsel of law enforcement regarding this issue."

    Hitler once said, “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerers who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.”

    a gunman killed 4 officers sitting in a coffee shop, it wouldn't have mattered if they posted signs or had a corporate policy saying you can't bring your gun in here

    It's 91%. NWCN (Northwest Cable News) is far from the worst in reporting. Hopefully they will actually put the results on their broadcast.

    I hope the poll is worrisome to Starbucks.With all the random acts of violence
    going on in this country you think business like Starbucks would be handing out
    coffee and donuts free to anyone who willing to take on the large responsibility
    to carry a firearm within the rights of law abiding citizen.Good luck !

    Why can't we petition the US Government to disban the Brady Campaign? I am absolutely SICK of hearing their crap and sick of how the media jumps on every little bit of news that "guns should be outlawed everywhere."

    No, you can't. The number remains the same. In the future I'd suggest that people don't post something like this. It doesn't exactly paint us in the best light...

    Thank you excellent point. We do not need to use Brady Bunches deceitful tactics. Mods should edit that post it may not advocate illegal activity but it sure is unethical

    Yep, I did that. Use it for whatever you like.

    Here is a slightly better version. The text wasn't quite right on the last one.
