It’s National ‘Bring Your Gun To Starbucks Day’ — What Could Go Wrong?

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.

I'll never understand the love men hold for their weapons. Guns, switchblade knives, swords, what ever. Are they that terrified of the rest of the world that they only feel safe toting a weapon? I've never owned a gun and never will. They're not allowed in my house.

I realize it's important to know how to shoot a weapon in case you have to go to another country to battle with soldiers in order to help the rich get richer and the poor less populated. War is, after all, "God's way of keeping the population count down."

But to walk the streets of a country at peace carrying a weapon, I can't see it. None of the rural people who are gun-crazy (meaning they love guns) would never have the need to, say, walk through the Watts neighborhood in Los Angeles, or that part of New York City that looks like it was bombed out and where the police don't even go. They go to bed early, so it's not likely they'll be walking city streets late at night. I just don't get it. And, by the way, before anyone starts calling me a moron, I'm being sarcastic here. But I do not own a gun.

This makes as much sense as having a "Kiss your Gay Partner In Starbucks Day" just because they do not deny service to gay folks.

And how long before the inevitable deadly accident occurs?

Perhaps a gun-toting, future 'Darwin Award' winner will get flustered and toss his coffee into an alleged assailant's face … and then shoot himself in the mouth.
Crazier things have happened …
