    Good for Starbucks. Something tells me the Brady bunch won't be giving up.

    I own a few hundred shares of their stock (they are the McDonalds of coffee IMO) and am waiting for a pullback to buy some more. As a shareholder this makes me happy that a company known for their left leaning policies has decided to take a stand by not getting involved in this issue. After all there are plenty of gun laws on the books already and it would be somewhat redundant to make a corporate policy that may lose you some customers. I will respond to the link and let them know in as much at the very least they will save themselves some money in potential legal actions should they make a policy and try to enforce it in one of the growing gun friendly states

    For the record, Dunkin Donuts coffee tastes way better, its just Starbucks has better marketing and growth prospects

    I like Starbuck's coffee :) But to each his own taste. C'mon people, now is the time to follow the link wacki put up, fill in the form with your real name and address, and thank them for standing by your basic civil rights. We're all angry at these people when they desert us, let's step up when they do right.

    Starbucks coffee is way to strong and bitter. It is really more of a concentrate for use in their frapa-crapa-chino drinks that the metrosexuals love so much.

    Since this is the activism forum, I suggest we call / e-mail Starbucks and compliment them on their stance.

    And, google around the internet--the BB has planted this press release in lots of places, and many of them could use a local response.

    I personally like Starbuck's coffee. Regardless, this isn't about foo-foo coffee or flavor, it's about corporate America taking a stand for individual rights. Starbucks got a heartfelt reply of thanks from me (thanks for the link, OP) and I'll be patronizing them from here on out.

    Exactly ACTIVISM The fact that Starbuck's is so beloved of city dwellers, liberals, etc., makes it all the more important to weigh in! Follow the link in the OP!

    Email sent. I told them I would frequent my local Starbucks more now, but if the policy changed, I would stop frequenting it.

    Good for them.

    Great idea to email them!

    Sent them an email and have become a customer. Brady Campaign is trying REAL hard to get Starbucks to succumb. Anything we can do to support Starbucks will send the message that they made the right decision.

    Not just in your opinion. Starbucks is the supplier of McDonalds' new McCafe coffees.

    Its good to see a company stand their ground despite bullying. A few other places folded under the pressure. Starbucks didnt budge. Im kind of surprised by that. Good for them
