Guns—lots of ‘em—and really strong coffee. What could possibly go wrong?
You might expect something like this from Chick-fil A, but did you know that it’s “Starbucks Appreciation Day,” as organized by Second Amendment enthusiasts in as many as 30 states? Apparently so according to the Facebook page that was set up for it. Might be a good day to test out the java at Dunkin’ Donuts, eh?
“Starbucks is allowing us to lawfully carry firearms in their store. Recently, they have been the target of unjust attacks from certain groups that do not support our right to bear arms. We will thank starbucks for standing up for our right to bear arms by going there on Friday, August 9th. We ask that if you choose to carry a firearm during this event that you follow all local, state, and national laws; and if you choose not to carry that you wear pro-gun rights apparel.”
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America had this to say at their Facebook page:
TELL STARBUCKS TO STOP ARMED RALLIES AT ITS STORES ON AUG. 9: More than 2,000 gun advocates are planning armed rallies inside Starbucks across the country on Friday as part of “Starbucks Appreciation Day,” which honors the company’s lax gun policies. More than 30 states allow open carry without a permit, screening or training. Starbucks has the legal right to prevent gun in its stores, just like it bans smoking outside its stores.
Tell Starbucks it is not ok to endanger our children and families
To say nothing whatsoever about the SAFETY OF THEIR OWN EMPLOYEES, for fuck’s sake! (“You screwed up my mocha latte ON PURPOSE, you lib’rul barista piece of shit. You think you’re funny, don’t cha?” and so on.)
Fred F. Cuomo-Tondalo left this scathing comment on the guns and caffeine fanpage:
Yeah in Newtown Starbucks they are having cutouts of the Newtown kids who were killed for target practice while you digleberries drink your lattes
But Jame Yeager, the wag who posted the below pic of “the event,” on its fanpage asking for captions, had the best comment of all:
Moments later they formed an ass to mouth human centipede.
BOOM! Some university researcher needs to study the correlation between gun permits and Viagra prescriptions. There should at least be a legal provision in our gun laws stating that you must be able to actually SEE your own dick to own and carry a firearm.
