Starbucks has become the unwitting battleground of a movement. One that by trying to sidestep, it may have stepped deeper into. Until now, “open carry” types have praised Starbucks for its policy of following local, state, and federal laws about guns. But now, Starbucks is planning to run ads, asking owners to leave their guns outside. CEO Howard Schultz says, “We are respectfully requesting that customers no longer bring firearms into our stores or outdoor seating areas. This is a request and not an outright ban.”
But for some, a request is as good as a demand. So if Starbucks did ban guns in its stores outright, would you still support them, or find another place to get your caffeine fix?
