Patrick Burke at CNS News - The National Gun Victim's Action Council (NGAC) is organizing a boycott of Starbucks on Valentine's Day, February 14, protesting Starbucks' policy of allowing open carry in their stores in states where that is legal. Tuesday is a bad day for me to drive half an hour to the nearest Starbucks, but I've put it in my calendar anyway. Good time to have a cup of Joe. That Starbucks is in the People's Republic of Massachusetts, where open carry is banned, so there may be no protesters there, but at least I can help their bottom line a little bit. Let's multiple that by 3 million!

Dave Workman, communications director of the Citizens’ Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, said in a phone interview with that the revenues of Starbucks increased during and after the Brady Campaign’s attempt in 2010 to force Starbucks and other businesses to adopt more “anti-gun” store policies.

“That attempt didn’t really gain much traction, and in the subsequent financial reports for about a year, Starbucks reported increased profits at their stores,” said Workman. “That indicates to us that not only are people not as worried about legally armed private citizens that may or may not be in their midst – they enjoy a good coffee product.”

I don't particularly like SB's products but will spend a buck or two there on principle...
