I always assumed Starbuck's patronage consisted of long haired intellectuals with Macbook laptops sipping coffees with confusing "exotic" sounding names while writing theater that will never get published. Possibly a fedora or Castro hat. Guess I was wrong or they'll be losing a few customers, and gaining a few by the reactions I've read.

Let's just ban coffee. It's making the Brady Bunch waaaaay to jumpy.
How many millions of gun owners, vs how many in the Brady Bunch ? Economics.
But, good for Starbucks, I will pass the word.
- Did not know that there are only 180,000 people that belong to the Brady Bunch. Sounds like there are fewer viral Hoplophobiacs out there than we thought.
- Their unsweeted iced teas are pretty good. As a Type 2 Diabetic, I drink them while in airports.
- Their pasteries are good, but pricey. Calorie laden.
- A thank you on their web site is in order for all of us who pack http://www.starbucks.com/customer/co...rms.asp?nav=3e.
- As to the Brady Bunch continuing to exist, should we start a pool to guess how long they will exist, after McDonald v Chicago and Palmer v DC are decided? This PR stunt, like their body count of CCW shooters, is part of their final attempt to stay in the public eye and remaining relevant. Fighting the "gun show" loophole and being against concealed carry in general (and on campus in particular) are not winners for them either.
- BHO turned out to be a bust for them too. An F- for somebody that they expected to sign a permanent AWB ban the week after the guy took office must be a real downer. They must be guzzling the Koolaid by the magnum.

I typically avoid Starbucks, don't like their coffee and I prefer smaller coffee shops that still do it right. But I do appreciate their snubbing the Brady Bunch, even if they specify unloaded guns. It is better than them following the BB.

I'm not really a fan of Starbucks at all... But I love them for standing up for what's right against the insane, extremist, anti-American Brady's who wish to push their irrational hoplophobic opinions fear mongering against our Constitutionally guaranteed rights.

Not to mention that their own purchasing practices called C.A.F.E. practices does even MORE than fair trade. They actually require economic transperancy to each employee. Unlike Fair Trade which only requires that you pay the amount when you purchase which doesn't guarantee that everybody will be actually getting the money.

I like they are cleaning up their image. I stopped buying Starbuck's coffee altogether after receiving a disturbing email a couple years ago from their headquarters to a soldier in Iraq. I don't recall specifics but Starbucks refused to participate in any coffee donations to our servicemen overseas in Iraq. They evidently did not support any war efforts and wanted no involvement. I don't know if that was a bogus email but I sure "dropped it like it was hot!" Haven't drank the stuff in 2 years I think. I am glad they are coming around.
