So much for relevance

Starbucks blows off the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership:

Starbucks has brushed aside a request from a gun control advocacy group to ban the display of guns in its retail locations, saying it will abide by laws that allow patrons to openly carry unloaded weapons.

I guess the pressure from tens of petition signers wasn’t that great.

    I agree with Jeff saying, “I suggest that all of you congratulate them on their policy.”

    Starbucks’ online contact form:

    I also wonder if Starbucks is concerned about the Brady Campaign’s unauthorized misuse of their registered trademark logo?

    I sent my note of thanks and support today. Good work breaking this open and helping to get the word out.

    You don’t want to annoy a person who has just chugged a big cup of Hi-Test, and might be carrying a gun, after all.

    What about loaded weapons? Is there a point to the open display of an unloaded weapon?

    Seems like a luke warm latte response to me.
