Starbucks is asking customers to leave firearms behind when they are in its stores and its outdoor seating areas.

That is over the edge. A police officer in uniform? They should hang citations all over the manager's '82 Toyota covered with bumper stickers for solidarity and the rainbow coalition.

You beat me to it, I was going to predict Starbucks robbery and violence rate would skyrocket after this. Also, Starbucks robs their customers with what they charge for friggin coffee, total ripoff.

First off, I agree with your description of their outrageous prices.

I doubt Starbuck's baristas are armed currently. Probably the most dangerous thing they carry is a nail clipper. I doubt robberies will increase relative to this requirement. The crooks already know it is open season, and they will get no resistance from employees.

It is a typical feel good corporate policy that accomplishes nothing, except getting them huge national press coverage. Soccer moms nationwide can rejoice that they're safe at Starbucks. More American corporate idiocy.

Starbuck's CEO said "guns should not be part of the Starbucks experience".

I suppose freeloading their wi-fi, hanging around for hours, one person taking over a table that would seat four with their computer and papers, and nursing a cup of coffee until it is room temperature is the real Starbucks experience.

If I can't take my 12 gauge tactical shotgun to Starbucks, they have lost my business. Dunkin' Donuts doesn't care. Do they have wi-fi?

I no longer feel safe a Starbucks. Starbuck's CEO is a liberal talking head. Goodbye Starbucks.

We all complain about the price of gas and justifiably so BUT.

What's a gallon of Starbuck's coffee cost when you buy it one cup at a time $30.00-$40.00 ?

Horrible analogy. Gasoline will poison you. Possibly I missed your point.

Sure, I prefer to drink diesel anyway, but the new biodiesel tastes like azz.

So I can't carry my licensed firearm into Starbucks (like they would ever now). This policy won't change anything unless they install metal detectors. A rule with no bite. It did get them on the national evening news.
Question for Starbucks: Why do you hire every gay guy on the planet? You find my gun offensive in your store, I find your poofs offensive to me.
They act like making a freakin cup of coffee is some complex task. Water + coffee grounds = coffee. D=bag calls himself a barista.
Then there's the stupid tip container, which I use for misc. trash. The looks on the losers faces when I throw a waded-up napkin in their tip bucket is priceless.

Guys with attudes making coffee. I agree, never tip at Starbucks. And hey, tell the laptop losers to move along and free up some space for the paying customers.

I guess a shootout at Starbucks might be bad for business. Good rule. But unenforceable. Put a 30 minute limit on wi-fi, and clean out the squatters that live there.
