Comments on: Starbucks policy shift is small win for gun safety, big one for economic boycotts http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2013/09/18/starbucks-policy-shift-is-small-win-for-gun-safety-big-one-for-economic-boycotts/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Anonymous http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2013/09/18/starbucks-policy-shift-is-small-win-for-gun-safety-big-one-for-economic-boycotts/#comment-78396 Fri, 29 Nov 2013 12:32:41 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=24172#comment-78396 The people with concealed carry permits here in Ohio are law abiding citizens and no threat to anyone except to those that would cause them great harm. I’m sure the open carry folks are the same.

As far as the millions of people the writer claims have been affected by gun violence most are drug types ….not your typical Starbucks customer.

Starbucks has never been a ‘firearms friendly’ chain. It’s been a chain where each store followed the laws of the state they were in.

To say this policy ‘change’ is due to a deliberate economic boycott is to say that the sun rises because a bunch of people set their alarms to wake up at dawn.

In addition, store management has always had the right to say ‘no shoes, no shirt, no firearms permitted, no service.’ Because each store is private property.
