Thought id share this...I wasn't aware of this event untill a few minutes ago...
Gun owners across America plan to on Friday go armed to Starbucks outlets when getting their morning (noon and evening) coffee, as part of an “I Love Guns and Coffee” campaign, and a show of appreciation to the coffee giant for letting customers pack heat when it accords with state law.
“It’s a grassroots effort organized on Facebook,” said Jim Childers of Whidbey Arms, who laments that his his South Whidbey store is 40 miles from the nearest Starbucks outlet.
Starbucks has refused a bid by the Brady Campaign, the nationwide advocacy group supporting handgun control, that customers go unarmed to get their coffee. The “Starbucks Appreciation Day” is the second such event: The first was a “Gun Owners Support Starbucks Day” last February.
