Good

Being politely asked to leave your gun at home is exactly the same as having your guns forcibly taken away from you by jack-booted government thugs.
 
2013-09-18 08:26:49 AM  
Meh.  I'm not paying for a drink without booze in it anyway.

This seems like an exceptionally reasonable stance to take.

Yep.  They are pretty much just saying leave us out of this bullshiat, we just want to sell coffee

And it will get blown out of proportions and people will lose their minds over nothing.  There will be protests and sit-ins and counter-protests and t-shirts that say star farks.

This is why we can't have nice things.  Wearing your guns to a Newtown, CT Starbucks to make some kind of point?  I don't think you made the point you thought you were making.

This is why we need libertarians in this country!  We need laws against what starbucks is trying to do!

Republican double standards:

You can open carry a weapon anywhere you want in public, and you're supporting  liberty!
Unless you're a  ni*BONG*, in which case you're trying to intimidate voters.

Does your mom openly display her derringer?  If not, they'll never know she has it.  They aren't "banning" guns in their establishments, they are politely asking that people not bring them.
 
2013-09-18 08:34:25 AM  
Gotta feel for Starbucks, they're in a tough spot. "Please don't boycott us, we're just trying to keep this other group of assholes from boycotting us."

Let's have the faux cowboy outrage from the right wingers who will be too stupid to know that even in the actual Old West there were routinely business establishments and public gatherings that had "no guns" rules.

Typical that thugs like you want the government's laws to tell me what I can do on my personal property.

Let me tell you a little thing the Founding Fathers told me.  It's called "Don't Tread on Me", and right now you jackboots are treading all over me.

Wearing it on her belt would seem to defeat the purpose. What they're talking about is open carry. And anybody that thinks it's OK to carry into a retail business with cash in the register is an idiot.

Right only straight people feel the need to carry guns everywhere. Or something.

Maybe that lady was right about it being impossible for a gay man to shoot people?

I go to Dunkin Donuts where I can ask for a large coffee - light and sweet - and I get a large coffee with a lot of creamer, and just the right amount of sugar. It's perfect.

I go to Starbucks and ask for a large coffee - light and sweet - the "barista" suddenly goes full on retard, I get interrogated, and the manager has to come over, and they hand me a cup of terrible coffee that is dark, bitter, and I have to finalize the preparation myself on top of a trash station where the only creamer is some hippie soy milk because the half-and-half is farking empty. Every time.

As a person that doesn't carry a gun I am all for this boycott.  We need less gun carriers at Starbucks and their goals align with mine.

I got the impression that Schultz is just asking people not to carry openly inside Starbucks. The phrase "open carry" occurred several times in TFA, and it seemed to be the primary issue.

I've never been in a Starbucks.

I have nothing against Starbucks (owing to the fact that I've never been to one and, thus, have nothing upon which to make a judgment), I've just never felt a compelling reason to go to Starbucks.

We already had this conversation a week or two ago and the conclusion by the gun "advocates" was that Wyatt Earp was a mincing pansy and hated America.

I was thinking more of the "you're just as big a man" comment by subby lol

Hers is in a pocket book.

My dad's resides in a zip up holster that looks exactly like a special smart phone holster.  He doesn't go for that "derringers are a woman's gun" thing.  It has a kick of a .38 and he travels alone alot in a modified van he sleeps in instead of hotels. How would they tell with him?

I don't really get the concern over open carry, as if it's somehow worse than concealed. I'd rather the people with brains the size of peas make it obvious so the rest of us can stay away from them.

Wow, a headline that blatantly violates Markley's Law?  This thread will be interesting.

Plus this:
The coffee chain did not, however, issue an outright ban on guns in its nearly 7,000 company-owned cafes

They just want the issue to go away, and they don't see a way to win by expressly supporting either side.  So they ask nicely, but don't change their policy.  And that's the important part to consider.

A few years ago, I saw two Dunkin Donuts commercials in the same hour - one was all "we're real coffee for real folks, none of this fancy Fratalian stuff" and the other was "Try our new latte!". Also, their coffee sucks and tastes like water that's been in the sink for a while.

The stupid came late to this thread, but come it did.  Local laws may allow open carry in certain establishments, they don't require it.  Why do you want to take away the rights of the business/property owners?

Six of one, a half dozen of the other.  My point being, if you aren't openly displaying your firearm, they won't know you have it, and even if they notice some printing, they aren't gonna ask you to leave.  I'm a gun owner, I have a CWL, and I don't see where anyone could be outraged by this.  I usually don't agree with most of the people here who are championing Starbucks' decision on this issue, but this time they're right.  If it's a question of infringing upon rights, Starbucks is well within their rights as a private business to do this and more to keep guns out of their establishment.  That doesn't mean you have to buy your coffee there.

I'm bringing my gun to Starbucks because sometimes my Venti needs a few extra shots.

Karl LaFong: Chronic shrinkage?


Because all people who carry guns do so to make up for their sadly undersized genitalia.

/gun owner
//thinks carrying in public, open or concealed, is stupid
///MORE gun control - most of the not-me population is too dumb to be trusted with them
 
2013-09-18 08:53:52 AM  
I totally agree!

Whenever I see someone driving a hummer or a sports car or a luxury car - I go 'Haha - small penis!'.

When my coworker got the promotion I wanted, I knew it was only because he worked harder for it....because he needed to compensate....FOR HIS SMALL PENIS. So, I laughed at him.

I went out for drinks last night and I saw a guy go up to the hottest girl in the bar and after just a few minutes, they kissed passionate and walked out arm-in-arm. At first I was jealous but I realized any guy who was that good at picking up hot women must be compensating for something. I laughed at the thought of his tiny penis (making love to the hottest woman I'd ever seen).

Still, a little depressed over my lack of success at the bar, I decided it was time to hit the weights. I went to the gym and I saw a guy benching 450 pounds! This guy was huge and lean - looked like he should be on the cover of Men's fitness or something....but then I realized anyone who works out that much must be compensating for SOMETHING. And when I say something - I mean, his tiny penis.

Yes, anyone who enjoys any level of success greater than my own....has a tiny penis. ESPECIALLY WOMEN. And I never, ever, have to feel bad about myself, because really, I'm the best at everything I do, if you ignore those guys with tiny dicks who are only good and successful because they feel they need to be to make up for their tiny dicks.

Yup, sure feels good to be me. Me and my perfectly average-at-best life with my perfectly average-at-best penis, and my perfectly normal obsession with imagining the tiny dicks of other men. Yup, nothing wrong with me at all.

The problem is not about the rule per se, the problem is that Starbucks is injecting their business into a political debate -again.  Their business is to sell coffee.   Isn't it a little arrogant to start setting political standards that gour customers before they can get a cup of coffee?

Please, the term is "tele-vision."  Teevee is a nickname, nicknames are for friends, and tele-vision is no friend of mine.
