No More Guns & Coffee
Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has gone from a 2nd
amendment hero to a zero faster than you can say triple shot espresso.
A couple of years ago, he earned a lot of
fans by telling folks that the 11-thousand Starbucks would welcome concealed
carry permit holders who follow the law.
Some gun aficionados decided to show their appreciation by carrying
their guns openly, where it’s legal.
Anti gun forces pitched a fit.
And now Schultz has put out an open letter saying that Starbucks doesn't want any customers in its stores carrying a gun…open carry or concealed. That’s foolish.
A majority of Americans support the
individual right to own and carry a gun and all fifty states have made it legal. Starbucks says seeing a pistol upsets its
anti gun customers. So what?
Some bigots in America don’t like seeing blacks,
Muslims and Jews. Is Starbucks going to
ban Yarmulkes and Hajibs and dark skin next?
And what’s really comical for a top CEO like Schultz is seeing him
insist that he’s not banning gun loving Americans…just telling them they’re not
welcome in his stores if they’re exercising their constitutional rights.
