Anti-Gun Group to Launch Nationwide Boycott of Starbucks

Anti-Gun Group to Launch Nationwide Boycott of Starbucks

(CNSNews.com) — The National Gun Victims Action Council (NGAC) will lead a national boycott of Starbucks Coffee products on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, to try to change the company’s “open carry” gun policy at its locations. Starbucks currently allows guns to be openly carried by patrons in its stores in the states where it is legal to do so.

“Starbucks allowing guns to be carried in thousands of their stores significantly increases everyone’s risk of being a victim of gun violence,” said Elliot Fineman, CEO of the NGAC in a statement. “Open and conceal-and-carry are among the reasons there are 12,000 gun homicides each year in the U.S.”

The NGAC further stated that Starbucks has the legal right to ban guns from their coffee shops but the company “clings to this policy that puts millions of Americans at risk every day and encourages the spread of guns being carried in public.”

The NGAC says that its boycott will, “90% of the time,” reduce Starbucks stock price.

Anti-Gun Group to Launch Nationwide Boycott of Starbucks

First and foremost I want to applaud the Starbucks chain for their stand on, and support of the Second Amendment and the carrying of LEGAL firearms in their stores.

I don’t particularly like Starbucks. I am not into designer coffee, I like my coffee hot, sweet (Equal) and black, but on occasion I will go to Starbucks with friends that truly like their Mocha-Polka Frapahoochie Caramel Iced coffee with peppermint sprinkles. 😛

That said; Elliot Fineman is an IDIOT!

Open and concealed carry, by legal, lawful citizens is NOT a contributing reason for 12,000 gun homicides each year in the U.S.

Mr. Fineman is very wrong in his statement.

If anything, the LEGAL carry of firearms, by legal and responsible Americans is one of the reasons that homicide rates are not any higher than they are. Legal and licensed to carry gun owners are NOT the problem and I defy Mr. Fineman to prove otherwise.

I defy him to show irrefutable proof that the carrying of LEGAL arms by LEGALS citizens has cause any rise in the numbers of homicides in the USA.

I am sure Mr. Fineman doesn’t have the cojones to actually list JUSTIFIABLE homicides, acts where, yes, a life was taken, but that action was one of self defense by the gun owner or to protect others in his presence that were being threatened with death by an assailant.

Mr. Fineman must not realize, legal, responsible gun owners and CHL holders are not, by any stretch of the imagination, the ones that commit acts of murder, armed robbery and so forth. We are, however, citizens that have a terribly bad attitude against those that do.

I am thinking that on Valentines Day I may have to go to my local Starbucks and have a cup of coffee … maybe.

I may undertake my own personal boycott of Starbucks over this next story.

Starbucks: Legalizing Same-Sex Marriage ‘Is Core to Who We Are and What We Value’

(CNSNews.com) – Starbucks, the world’s largest coffee shop chain, added its name to the list of major corporations that have endorsed a gay marriage bill in Washington State, saying the legislation shares the company’s values at its core. The decision was criticized by many conservative, pro-family organizations.

Leading traditional marriage organizations, for instance, are accusing the Seattle-based company of “meddling” in the debate, after Starbucks joined Google, Microsoft, and Nike in support of the legalization of same-sex marriage that is currently gathering momentum in the state legislature. SOURCE

I have stated, on numerous occasions, I don’t care what a persons sexual orientation may be. I don’t care who a person lives with or sleeps with, it is none of my business.

What consenting adults do, in the privacy of their home, is none of my business.

Their personal sexual arrangements don’t affect me one way or another as long as they practice that arrangement in privacy and don’t attempt to foist it off on me. But make no mistake, I am a firm believer that the sanctity of marriage is to be between a man and a woman.

I have also heard some pundits say, “Let them get married, they have as much right to be miserable as the rest of us.” but I digress.

I see some good things come from Starbucks and an assumed to be Conservative stance on the Second Amendment and guns, and then I see the libber from hell come out when they use their corporate power to back homosexual marriage.

All things considered, I think I’ll stay home on Valentines Day and drink MY coffee.

    Delusions of grandeur by someone living in “never never land”. Fineman is an idiot. However gays with guns could be a problem.

  2. Bob Mack says:

    Ditto above. Fineman IS an idiot—but what self-respectin’, red-blooded, gun-totin’, drinker of REAL coffee goes to Starbucks anyway? I take my java strong, with sweet cream & bourbon, and sometimes I leave out the cream (sometimes I leave out the coffee too, but that’s another story). Designer coffee ain’t for me.

    • TexasFred says:

      I only go when someone else is paying… And I have been known to order a green tea… I really don’t like their coffee too much, but I think I would like YOUR coffee.. 😛

  3. TexasFred says:

    I just watched a video featuring this Fineman moonbat, and he looks and sounds exactly as his name would have me picture him…

    His son was murdered by a paranoid schizophrenic that had obtained a gun, according to Fineman, legally…

    Mr. Fineman, I am fully in support of the idea that those unstable persons should NOT have a gun in their possession, and I do indeed mourn the death of your son, but who is to determine the mental stability of all who walk into a guns shop or sporting good outlet to purchase a gun?

    Can you illustrate how the stores can justify having a clinical psychologist ON STAFF during all business hours in order to make that determination?

    I’d love to hear him argue that one. 😛

  4. Stormwarning says:

    But Fred, they’ve just introduced “blonde” coffee … I guess a milder and softer Starbucks without all of the bitterness. I only go to Starbucks when someone else suggests it as a meeting place. Totally dislike the taste of the coffee. I prefer one of those Bengal Trader Exxon coffees any day.

  5. BobF says:

    When was the last time anyone heard of a shooting in a Starbucks by a citizen carrying a firearm lawfully? I could only come up with two shootings at a Starbucks in the US. One in Washington DC by a punk criminal, where guns are illegal, and the other in California where two biker gangs were fighting over who was going to hang out at the Starbucks.

    Today, on our way back from Kansas City, we stopped at Starbucks where my wife got me my favorite: Iced Caramel Macchiato

    It’s terrible Fineman’s son was killed by someone with a gun but thousands of sons and daughters are killed ever year by automobiles, alcohol, sports, knives, bats, clubs, tire irons, and many other tings.

    Instead of going after guns, he needs to be going after paranoid schizophrenics.

  6. Texasperated says:

    I buy a pound of their Christmas blend each year and fix it at home. Other than that, Fred, I’ve had coffee with you and other unnamed persons at the Starbucks at TT and I always ask for it to be made in a french press (or would that be a freedom press?). I don’t know that it improves the taste of the coffee any, but it makes them work harder for their $2.00 cup of joe.

    Keep your powder dry

    • TexasFred says:

      Last time I was at Starbucks was that afternoon we met for our discussion with what is turning out to be a very underachieving Council member.. 😈

  7. Robert says:

    Well I give KUDOS to Starbucks for their support of the 2nd. In San Francisco there was a starbucks in the news for STANDING with the supporters of open carry (Even the unloaded version of CA prior to that being stripped too) Now, they are continuing that support and for that I thank Starbucks.

    The gay things… Well, that is pretty much a quid pro quo thing I think. Starbucks is a faggot/freak/whatever the cause of the day/OWS hang out in the big cities.. That segment of our society is MORE restrictive and intolerant than those they criticize for being intolerant. They don’t like something, they want a law against it. They like something, they want to make everyone to do it.

    I’ll overlook the faggot support because they are at the very least staying true to freedoms. (Like or not a “Free” society is going to have it’s derelicts) and since we’ve allowed that moral destruction to be taught in our schools and have been told they are a protected species, I guess we’ll have to live it until the next step in their agenda…

  8. TopGun says:

    Starbucks…isn’t that where the Coffee Party chose to have their meetings, and claimed to be NON-partisan?

    That’s kinda like trying to convince someone a Bear doesn’t crap in the woods.

    • TexasFred says:

      That would be the place … but the bear remark … for some reason, in my mind, I saw *Behar*, as in that hog Joy Behar… LMAO… 😛

      • TopGun says:

        Heh, her show just got cancelled here recently too, I read a few months back.

        Like Air America, nobody wants to listen to a Communist trash America.

        She probably snorted too much Nitrous Oxide too. Her IQ definitely shows something at one time in her life choked off Oxygen to her brain cells.

  9. Katie says:

    My oldest works for Starbucks. The pay is ok but the benefits are wonderful. The local Starbucks in your area are very involved with charity projects and local hospitals. They are in mine.

    BTW Fred, you can go into Starbucks and get a regular coffee and add what you like into it. The employees there will even explain the differences in the coffees and sometimes they even have tastings of the different coffees.

    Plus I love their Greek Yogurt. It’s the best.

  10. mrchuck says:

    Do not do this in TEXAS!
    Texas CHL laws dictate that as a holder, you MUST NOT display your handgun in public!!! Or face consequences.
    Being in a coffee shop is “in public” people.

  11. Fineman’s a dildo.

    And Starbucks sources from Leftist Seattle crap. I don’t drink there, I don’t eat there.

    And I hate coffee. Particularly theirs.

    BZ

  12. Mr. Fineman is, much like Tom Mauser, stuck on stupid too be blunt. We had the open carry issue thing come up here in Wyoming, in Casper. WYGO took on the anti freedom goofballs, and we won.
