Starbucks and St. Valentine's Day

Soooo, a whole bunch of anti-gun groups have gotten their knickers all knotted up because uncultured, backwards, and barbaric gun owners (like me) have been taking their guns into Starbucks.  Apparently, we gun toters will get incredibly angry and shoot up the place when our White Chocolate Mocha is too cold, or the Apple Purse scone is too hot.  These anti gun groups have asked that everyone boycott Starbucks on Valentine's Day.  They hope to force Starbucks to ban guns on their premises.

Well, shoot heck!  This represents two of my favorite things, guns and coffee!  I will do my part to make sure the boycott fails.  Also, since it's on Valentine's Day, and my wife, the World's Most Beautiful Woman, is addicted to Starbucks, I'll bring her with me.

You see, Starbucks can do with their private property whatever they want as long as they don't violate the law.  However, I'm glad they have chosen to allow me to carry my gun into their place of business.  So, I want to support them with my dollar (or twenty).  Therefore, on the 14th, I (along with other gun owners across the country) will be stopping by to spend some money there.  I would love it if their business went through the roof as a result of this "boycott."  Isn't America great!

Let's go get some caffeine!

I'm with ya, bro! And I appreciate the ST. Valentine's Day.
That's usually only a gangster reference.

Pity there's not a Starbucks here where I live. I'd find something to buy!

Mr. Barrister, first time I read your blog and this is what I find. Cool!!!
I mentioned the Starbucks boycott at the last meeting of the Stillwater Firearms Assn, (Feb. 8), and was told by many they would be there. I hope they remember and live up to their word.
Personally, I don't like Starbuck's coffee, but I'll be there a couple of times on the 14th to support them.

Auntie J, you might be able to buy something on line from them. I haven't looked, but they probably have a store at their site.

Even though I'm not a fan of Starbucks, I'm planning to get a large coffee from them on Valentine's Day. It's important to show support for anyone that shows support for us.
