Why in the world would you think they are targeting conservative Christians? LOL!

But while we are on the subject, why is it that conservative Christians, you know, the ones that believe everyone has a time to die and that God is in control of everything, feel the need to go around armed?

The thing is, large groups of gun toters were showing up at stores for rallies and advertising using Starbuck's name without permission making it seem like it was an event sponsored by Starbucks. A lot of normal customers were unnerved when they walked in for there morning cup and were confronted by these groups so SB asked to be left out of it. You can still carry concealed.

.....

A young cowboy named Billy Joe
Grew restless on the farm
A boy filled with wonderlust
Who really meant no harm
He changed his clothes and shined his boots
And combed his dark hair down
And his mother cried as he walked out
Don't take your guns to town, son
Leave your guns at home, Bill
Don't take your guns to town

Because only conservative Christians own guns, don't you know?

Bad move on Starbucks part though, they caved to the gun-grabbers. I can understand the position they were unwillingly put in, though. They never wanted to take a side on the gun debate but were forced to by both sides of the debate. Even now they didn't say a person can't bring a gun in to their stores. Yesterday they passed out a memo to all their employees explaining the new policy. They are only to ask a gun-toting customer to leave if they become disruptive.

Here's an actual photo of the memo passed around to all Starbucks employees:

The liberal media is making it out to be more than what it is in an attempt to portray it as a "win" for the anti-gun crowd.

SB is in a no win situation. When they said guns are OK, instead of those wishing to openly carry thinking how nice that was and going on about their business, they had to claim a victory and stage rallies using the SB name. Now that SB has asked nicely that you do not open carry in their stores the other side is basically doing the same victory dance.

Nuts, all of them.

If one wants to carry a gun get a permit and carry concealed. If you are openly carrying in a your normal shopping and coffee drinking day you look like a show off who is trying to compensate for...well, whatever.

Scenario 1:

Child: "Mommy, that man has a gun!"

Mommy: "Yes honey. He is going to use on any mass murderer that may come in and try to kill us all while we chill and enjoy our snack."

Child: "Mommy..."

Scenario 2:

Child: "Mommy, that man has a gun!"

Mommy: "Yes honey, Grown ups are allowed to have their guns at all times but little kids like you should never touch them."

Child:...suddenly very curious about guns...

Is it wrong for a business owner to ask customers not to bring their gun into their establishment? As a business owner, I think he has that right.

By the same token, you have the right to not frequent their business. It's all good.
