2$ for 2A at Starbucks
Starbucks in an interesting business in the world of 2nd Amendment advocacy. In most states that allow concealed or open pistol carry, private businesses are allowed to prohibit customers from carrying in their establishments. Among business that do that are Buffalo Wild Wings and TGI Fridays. Some places don't set a corporate policy and allow local franchisees to make the decision.
Starbucks is often thought of as a place for liberals to get their pretentious caffeine fix. But they do something good for gun owners. The corporate policy is for local franchises to be no more restrictive than the local law. State won't allow open carry? Can't do it at Starbucks. State does allow open carry? Can do it at Starbucks. Same for concealed carry. Some time ago, the libs found out about this and began a campaign to have Starbucks bar all firearms. They've held firm.
One anti-gun group is trying to organize a boycott of Starbucks on Valentine's Day (Feb. 14th - don't forget your wife or husband) to get them to change their policy. There is a grassroots movement afoot for pro-gun folks to counter the boycott with a BUYcott. To emphasize the reason, folks are encouraged to go to their banks to get a few two dollar bills, then use them on their Feb. 14th Starbucks purchase, along with telling the cashier or manager thank you for supporting the Second Amendment.
I don't drink coffee, but I'll be going to Starbucks with my $2 bills next Tuesday to get an ice tea or something like that. I encourage you to do the same. If you have an extra $2 bill or two, pick up a drink for someone else in line and tell them the purpose.
But I still refuse to order a "grande." I always get a "large."
