Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence : Open Carry Guns

For those not in the know on goings-ons in California, the Open Carry community has been getting more active. Groups have been meeting in various public establishments. As a result of a Brady Campaign bullying, the Peet's coffee chain publicly announced that it does not allow firearms in it's establishments. However, when the Brady campaign contacted Starbucks, they replied that they respect whatever the laws were in the given state. As a result of this, the Brady Campaign is stepping up it's pressure against Starbucks nationwide.

We all need to let Starbucks know that we appreciate that they respect our rights and our state laws, and to not let the Brady bullies pressure them into changing their position.

Thanks for the heads up on this. I went to the site you referenced and submitted the comment below.

I just read a story about the Brady Campaign trying to bully your company regarding your position on respecting firearm laws in a given state. I have never been a regular customer of any coffee establishment but I am going to change. I truly respect your position and anytime I want of a cup of coffee and near one of your stores I will definitely be one of your customers.

The final phrase of the Brady Campaign's FAQ page reads:

"...There also is no constitutional barrier to businesses establishing “gun free” policies; indeed, the right to control one’s own property gives businesses the freedom to establish those policies."

This works both ways. A company can certainly establish gun friendly policies if they choose. Thank you Starbucks for choosing wisely!

I left this comment on Starbucks site:
Thank you for choosing wisely and allowing us, the citizens of the USA, to be proactive for our own defense, for allowing us to exercise our legal 2A rights in your establishments.

I have not gone to Starbucks a lot but may start going more and I think I will contact the Brady Bunch and thank them for a heads up.
 
I like Starbucks and appreciate their corporate policy that respects our 2A rights. I've actually held firearms education classes at a couple of locations. They've always been very helpful and accommodating to our needs. One of the assistant managers asked if he could sit in our next class on his day off. I comp'd him no problem!

Kudos to Starbucks. Hope they don't cave under the pressure of the Brady Bunch!

I agree, I've never frequented Starbucks before, but I will stop there now.

I for one will spread the word to friends and family about this and will promote them to acquaintances on other forums.

I never understood the argument that a business could violate our constitutional rights. It's my understanding that a public accomodation cannot discriminate based upon race, religion, ethnicity and even sexual preference. For instance, a Christian couple running a bed and breakfast must rent a room out to a gay couple. So how is it that any coffee shop can deny us a right that our states and the Federal constitution has guaranteed us? Total B.S.

I just wanted to take a few minutes and thank you for your support of gun owners. I read the story about the brady campaign bullying you into forcing firearms owners into the back of the bus. We appreciate your willingness to allow state or federal law be what determines the stance in each store as to what is allowed and what is not. I have been a customer of starbucks for a long time but had gone more "local" for my coffee purchases as of late. But you can count me as one customer you have won back.
:no:
Just sent this off to starbucks.
84b20 hope you don't mind me using some of your ideas on the note to starbucks.

I sent them the following:

I'm just writing to thank you for ignoring the unwarranted pressure from the Brady Campaign urging you to ban firearms in your stores, regardless of state regulations. As a military veteran and long time concealed carry permit holder, I only conduct business in stores that respect my rights. Thanks again.
