Well folks will simply go to DD, McC’s, or to the local coffee shop, that is all.
This doesn’t surprise me. Starbucks didn’t say no guns and those who wish to bring them, still can. Their business, our money. Freedom is making choices.
I’m glad. There were always so many guns at my local Starbucks before. /sarc
Good article. I’ve never been in a Starbucks and probably never will, not for political reasons, I just prefer my home made Folgers.
I have a list of places (not a written list) that I boycott for various reasons but feel no need to try to encourage others in joining my personal boycotts.
I couldn’t even join in the BUYcott for Chic Fil A, I detest ALL chicken.
This is the crux of this article to me, the FREE MARKET which allows me and the merchants to decide on service and custom. While I firmly believe that it is STUPID for merchants to deny service based on skin color and other historical biases, to force non-monopoly service that violates personal principals is even more wrong!
Hmmm... What’s the difference between the ‘offended’ groups at Starbucks and the other incidents?
Oh - that’s right! Starbucks offended the conservative side, which doesn’t generally resort to terroristic physical or legal tactics, in contrast with the liberal factions.
Those of us who respect the Second Amendment also respect private property rights.
It is wholly within Starbucks’ right to decide they don’t want guns on their property.
Just as it is my right to decide to buy my coffee someplace else.
Freedom works just fine if you let it.
While the local Caribou Coffee is changing over to its new owners, I continue to carry in Starbucks.
It is about going home at the end of the day!
