Applauds Starbucks’ Policy to Serve all Lawful Gun Owners Applauds Starbucks’ Policy to Serve all Lawful Gun Owners
Free Market Ensures Gun Owners Will Get Served.

Bristol, VA –-( applauds Starbuck’s policy to serve all lawful gun carriers world wide. It is refreshing to see yet one more company not requiring law abiding gun owners to go to the back of the bus.

“Importantly,” says John Pierce, co-founder of, “Starbucks joins most American corporations in deciding not to discriminate against lawful gun carriers.”

For example, North American computer retailer giant Best Buy Inc.’s policy is also to “not restrict our customers who are legally entitled to carry a firearm.”

See urges all gun owners to patronize Starbucks worldwide and thank them for supporting the Second Amendment.

Because Cops are the "Only Ones" responsible enough to carry arms..give me a break.

You better go back to school on your Bill Of Rights knowledge, since everything on it is about the rights of individuals, and you mean to tell me that this amendment is for some thing other than individual rights, I do not think so.

Very soon the SCOTUS will hand down a verdict answering this very question deciding once and for all that this is a right of individuals.


I'm almost speechless, but not quite. Starbucks is allowing people to carry firearm into their stores, what next? Perhaps the people who are so vehement about the right to bear arms should ACTUALLY READ the 2nd Amendment. "A well regulated MILITIA, being necessary to the secutiry of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." I don't believe this says that people can bear arms in shops, restaurants, or on the street. Since when are we threatened in Starbucks? If someone takes the table near the window, that you have been… Read more »


Curtis41, LOOK IN THE MIRROR! It's obvious that YOU are the LOSER!

As previously stated, Starbucks is not supporting the "right to bear arms", they are simply recognising that the law ,at the moment ,"allows" it. Keep in mind those laws can be changed by the corrupt ,lying S.O.B. politicians that we have elected to represent us. Don't forget that… when the time comes to exercise that right!!

As for me ..I will quote a REAL AMERICAN PATRIOT, Charlton Heston, "They can have my gun when they pry it from my cold dead fingers"!!! GOD Bless America.. may he save us all.


All of this hoopla about the Dems taking away gun rights makes me laugh. All of you rights nuts are paranoid about this issue. But, I guess you need something to complain about, Oh wait, since we have an African American Dem president, you guys do nothing BUT complain. It is apparent that you really don't want to address any of the issues that need to be addressed and are nothing more than a road block to recovery. Just look at what happened during the Bush Admin. $1.2 Trillion deficit, housing collapse, financial collapse, all passed on to the Obama… Read more »


Technically, Starbucks has no policy on firearms carry, that is, they claim they only follow the laws of the state. Since when did a petition with up to 25,000 signatures on it, and threat of boycott determine business decisions? My solution to the problem was to order a few extra coffees from Starbucks. The Brady bunch and other hoplophobic groups and those who "simply do not like guns" should wake up and smell the coffee. It just won't be at Starbucks. My sense is the carry open response is, at least in part, not only demonstration and exercise of a… Read more »

I just posted a letter to Starbucks Corporate. I would encourage everyone else to do the same to let them know we are in support of them and not to cave in to the petitions and other nonsense.… Direct your message to "Corporate Social Responsibility and write them a note. I've attached a copy of my note below… feel free to modify it to your liking… -Anthony ================================ I read recently that Starbucks is in support of the American citizen's right to bear arms given to us in the 2nd Amendment. I would like to thank you for recognizing… Read more »


Thank you Starbucks! The only bullying and intimidation are coming from the Brady Campaign and elitists attempting to disarm the public.


Depending on where you live, your mileage may vary with Walmart…. I have talked with the Marketing Office, the regional manager of my area as well as the Security Chief, lawful carry is welcome in Western Washington.


Actually, I was told to leave a Walmart store for openly carrying a pistol in Michigan. I complained to the national corporate offices and was told that managers may decide how/ if firearms will be allowed… state laws notwithstanding. So, to say that Walmart is "pro 2A" is just plain wrong. Remember, too, that Walmart has very close corporate ties to Mayors Against Illegal Guns.. further showing Walmart's "true colors".



Don't be naive. Starbucks does not support gun rights. They are, for the moment, refraining from taking a position to see how this issue develops. Their present position on this is that they have no position and are deferring to applicable federal, state and local laws.

Starbucks is pro Starbucks and will adopt an anti-gun policy in a second if the progressives prevail in their campaign.


There are other retailers that allow lawful carry per state law; Home Depot, Lowes, Fred Meyer/Kroger, Safeway, Toys R Us, Barnes and Noble, Walmart. I'm glad to see Starbucks on board.
