It's hard not to laugh at the transparency of this article and the Brady Bunch's "poll".

Sounds like they got all of their paying members to sign the petition, and just about no one else.

Heck, if they even have 35,000 members...if they have more than that then not even their whole membership agrees with them!

Too funny for words.

Hell, if Doonesbury did a full week of strips on the subject, maybe this decision does warrant revisiting.

So cops with glocks stay out of Starbucks.

Hey Starbucks, there are other nanny groups that believe they can decide company policy for companies they don't own.

McDonalds (a liberal/demorat company) is now finally getting fed-up with nannys telling them which products they can't sell.

Consider what Liberals want done with BP and the State of Arizona.

If we caved in to the Liberal demand we would stay inside our air filtered cocoons 24/7.

But for what its worth, Al Gore made $millions for being a liberal nanny.

Liberals are destroying America's economy.

too bad those cops a year ago didn't have faster access to their glocks. Several families wouldn't be without fathers, brothers, husbands, and friends!

Like the ban on carrying guns are gonna stop me from going there armed, for sure. Yeah, right!! I carry concealed w/ a permit very discreetly. There are more gun owners than those 35,000 of those pu**y Brady Bunch members. I don't see that taking place right now.

No one has to look at my H&K or S&W since it is concealed. I go about my business w/ looking obvious.

Defending Big Business again, Tory?

Sorry, but let Starbucks rot. Plenty of small business employment to be had without them, especially with so many out of work.

In a free economy, BP would not exist, and those oil rigs would be family-run operations that could not afford to make such a huge mistake like that.

Get a clue, Tory. You defend gun rights, but that's just one part of a very large picture.

I agree with you, my post was to illustrate the absurdity of the statement.

Welcome to the club. If a politician doesn't understand the Second Amendment or chooses to ignore or dismiss it's true importance he does not deserve our vote.

Nor would I trust them on any other issue. If they would violate our GOD given & constitutionally recognized rights, they deserve only our undying contempt & opposition.

To continue my point, If he doesn't respect the Second Amendment he will not respect any of the rest of the Amendments in the Bill of RIGHTS.
