Starbucks does not ban guns in their 13,000 U.S. restaurants. The Seattle, Washington-based coffee giant has refused to invoke their legal right to ban firearms from their restaurants, and to thank them, gun owners across America are participating in today’s “Starbucks Appreciation Day” — by bringing their guns to Starbucks.
So, if you go to a Starbucks today, you’ll possibly be confronted with many people carrying handguns and rifles, just because they want to thank Starbucks.
“Starbucks is allowing us to lawfully carry firearms in their store,” the group, Gun Owners, states on Facebook:
Recently, they have been the target of unjust attacks from certain groups that do not support our right to bear arms. We will thank starbucks [sic] for standing up for our right to bear arms by going there on Friday, August 9th.
We ask that if you choose to carry a firearm during this event that you follow all local, state, and national laws; and if you choose not to carry that you wear pro-gun rights apparel.
Because what’s the stupidest way to “thank” Starbucks for not banning guns? Flood their stores with them.
Starbucks will soon be flooded with letters wondering why the hell they aren’t banning guns — especially if someone gets hurt.
Remember, guns aren’t stupid, people are.
