Protesters rally against Starbucks for allowing guns in their stores



  • SAM 5 years ago

    Yeah Starbucks for not caving to special interest groups! The second admendment seems to always be the center of some sort of negotiation, but it is, as of now, the right of people to lawfully carry a fire arm. Good for Starbucks to respect the local rule of law rather than ideological agendas. Good article Michael.

    Why do you need to take a firearm to Starbucks? Who cares if you *can* take one there. What purpose does it serve?

    I really question the intelligence and maturity of anyone who thinks that getting a latte while armed is "standing up for the Constitution."

    I see plain cloths law enforcement going into Starbucks packing heat. Should we stop them from exercising their 2nd amendment, and make them keep their guns in the unmarked cars?

    Starbucks gets my business everyday. I am a
    voter, and strong 2nd amendment supporter.

    @C Ellmaker
    you're right. why would you need a set of jumper cables every where you go? you shouldn't keep them in your car. why would you need a fire extinguisher accessible in your home at all times? you should ditch it.

    It is about more than standing up for the constitution. It is about being able to protect yourself whenever/ wherever you need to. And by the way, my gun is far more dangerous in my car (unattended, where it can be stolen) than on my hip in a secure holster.

    Next time someone cuts you off in traffic, and you think to yourself "I wish there was a cop nearby", think about how that feeling would amplify if you were being robbed, raped, or beaten. Maybe one more tool to protect yourself is not such a bad idea. . . no matter where you are.

    Ellmaker: We don't give a damn what you question. You're a person of no consequence to us. Why don't you seek out and talk to some victims who were either injured or lost loved ones because they were "somewhere" in public and denied their right to defend their and their loved ones' lives. You never know when or where you may need to defend yourself. Criminals generally do not make appointments with their victims.

    Gotta go. Have a caffe awaiting at Starbucks.

    If they don't like guns with their latte, why don't they get their latte elsewhere? Instead, the rest of us suffer from them ramming their ideals down everybody else's throats.

    Open Carry in Denver is illegal, thus there's no problem for the anti-rights crowd to complain about. The open carriers I'm acquainted with (open carry dot org) never break the law; we're scrupulous about that. That's why I know my first sentence is true.

    Have you noticed that the anti-rights crowd panders to peoples' ignorance? From outright misstatements of fact to general impressions directed toward the ignorance of people who get all their "knowledge" from mainstream media, the one thing the anti-rights crowd can be counted on its being wrong.

    Starbuck's will continue to get my business - I applaud them for standing by their principles and respecting the local rule of law. As an American, and as a cop (who carries all the time), I have no problem with open or concealed carry.

    CeaseFire Colorado, the Brady Bunch, and all others like them who feel the 2nd Amendment infringes on their so-called 'rights' need to shut up and get a life. Since they are such a small minority in our society and can't get the rules and laws they want, they feel the need to whine, moan, yell, stamp their feet, and complain - using illogical arguments that ignore the facts.

    You don't like seeing guns? Then don't look or go somewhere else. We are tired of arguing with you. You are not worth the attention.

    You have the right of free speech - but you do NOT have the right to force others to listen to you or believe you. You also have the right to remain silent. We wish you would exercise the 5th with the same fervor you practice the 1st.
