Howard Shultz, Starbuck's CEO, collapses

Starbuck's has knuckled under to the anti-gunners. In a letter to the public today, CEO Howard Schultz stated that he no longer wants guns in his coffee shops. In other words, the law-abiding, armed customers are no longer wanted.

Only armed criminals need enter. Now, he didn't say quite that, but the criminals can read between the lines.

What will I do with my Starbuck's card? I've already cut it up.

I shall call Starbuck's customer service, and I shall inform the manager of every nearby Starbuck's that I used to be a customer and why I no longer shall be.

They want a boycott? They've got it.

It was a request, not a ban.

Kat's, under the law a "request" takes on the meaning of a Ban.

If Schultz only "requests" that I enter with a concealed weapon, no problem; he and his employees will never know I'm armed.

If Starbuck's posts a No Guns Allowed, sign, that's a ban, enforceable under State law as a crime.

Prior to this, Starbuck's followed State law. I'll drink elsewhere.

I just started to frequent Starbucks since this announcement. The 3 locations here don't seem to be suffering an ill effects from the gun "ban". At all. How much did you actually patronize Starbucks, anyway? You don't seem like a Starbucks guy in any way shape or form.

Kat's Kradle, are you in Illinois? If you are, you must know that we have a concealed-carry law but no licenses to carry have yet been issued.

Only the cops and the bad guys have guns in Starbuck's in Illinois.
