Starbucks Boycott

The National Gun Victim’s Action Council (NGAC) is organizing a nationwide boycott of Starbucks because they refuse to ban legal guns in their establishments.

Starbucks’ “Pro-Gun” Policy Prompts Gun Victims’ Advocate Group to Launch Nationwide Boycott on Valentine’s Day 2012

There’s a lot of blah blah blah in that press release. One bit not mentioned is the number of shootings in Starbucks by gun owners legally carrying. One is pretty much forced to assume that it’s so low as to undermine the NGAC’s position.

When Murdoc wants some fancy coffee, he usually hits Biggby’s because of the side of the street its on. He’ll start making a couple of extra left turns to get a Starbucks once in a while if this boycott takes off.

  1. Dunkin Donuts coffee beats ’em all. Hands down.

    Don’t want any of that “fancy” (expensive) junk.

    Just plain old heart kickin juice.

    1. DD coffee is, without a doubt, Murdoc’s favorite coffee coffee. There’s not a convenient DD near my location, so I don’t get it too often. But I don’t mind me some fancy coffee from time to time, either.

  2. Here’s what I wanna know; when was the last time _any_ boycott worked? Heck, even boycotting countries doesn’t work, yeah? Why do people think this works? Oh, I got any idea, someone should make a YouTube video “Sh*t Political Knuckleheads Say”.

  3. DD coffee is to Starbucks coffee as Bud Light is to Microbrewed beer.
    In other words, it’s coffee for people who can’t appreciate fine coffee which is
    fine with me. To each his own.
    However, if Starbucks is pro-gun, then I am definitely pro-Starbucks.
