  • Guns and Starbucks

    Whats a week on CS if we arent indulging one of our favourite sports: coffee chain bashing.
    Careful about asking for that extra shot in Starbucks in the US; you might get more than you counted on.

    Go ahead, make my coffee

    Starbucks......suddenly has a dubious clientele: groups of middle-aged men, hanging out, guns dangling.

    They are not the savvy elitists Starbucks - at least in America - likes to cultivate. Some, like Jim Snyder, a 59-year-old Virginian and retired military officer, dont even like coffee. He drops into Starbucks only because the chain lets customers bring their guns.


    <snip>

    That, in turn, has prompted anti-gun activists to stage their own protests outside and inside Starbucks stores. Early last month both sides squared off at a Seattle Starbucks.

    Despite heavy pressure to ban open carry supporters, Starbucks has come down on the side of its armed customers, arguing that so long as they stay within the law it has no cause to turn them away. Last month, Starbucks issued a statement from its Seattle headquarters, saying: Were we to adopt a different policy from local laws allowing open carry, we would be forced to require our customers to leave our stores, putting our employees at risk in an unfair and potentially unsafe position.

    In a nation in which some 40,000 guns are sold every day, Starbucks position might be as much opportunistic as altruistic.

        Instead of getting a hot cup of coffee thrown at you if you piss off a customer, youd get a hot lead bullet

          Would you risk entering a Starbucks and asking for a double "shot"?

                    The guns are for anyone willing to kill their palate by drinking the poison supplied
