Gun control groups advocating boycotting Starbucks on Valentine's Day 2012

Well, it will be interesting to see how successful the boycott is.

A nationwide boycott of Starbucks stores and its products will be launched on Valentine's Day 2012. Its goal is to eliminate the risk of guns in public places and ultimately to bring sane gun laws to the U.S.

This boycott is being called by the National Gun Victim's Action Council (NGAC), a network of 14 million gun victims, the faith community including the: Episcopal Peace Fellowship, United Church of Christ, Fellowship of Reconciliation (46 peace fellowships and 43 affiliate fellowships), secular groups working to reduce gun violence and many of the organizations that support passing sane gun laws.WHY STARBUCKS? Currently, Starbucks allows guns and assault weapons to be openly carried in its stores (in 43 states) and concealed and carried in its stores (in 49 states) (See Photos). Starbucks' compliance with the National Rifle Association's Pro-Gun Agenda was exposed in 2010 when members of the "open carry" movement began meeting in popular chains, such as California Pizza Kitchen, Peets, IKEA, Disney and Starbucks openly carrying their handguns and assault rifles. . . .

Thanks for letting us know. I, for one, will be buying Starbucks gift cards, and hot, delicious, gun-friendly beverages for both me and my family that day.

Well I guess I'll see y'all at the Starbucks on Valentine's Day! You will not, however, see my Second Amendment right on display because the State of California prefers zombies to free thinking responsible citizens that don't depend on the government to tell them how to live their lives.

I put a note on my calendar to be sure to stop by a couple of the local Starbucks on Valentine's Day and get a coffee and a pastry each time.
It'll be our buycott vs. their boycott, we'll see who wins, but I wouldn't put my money on those scummy OWS'ers - they look kind of broke.
