    If starbucks lost the pro gun folks, it would Seriously Hurt their bottom line… and they are savvy enough to realize that. So there is Not a Big deal made about guns in their stores.

    When you ask for a shot, be very clear you mean espresso.

    I’m so grateful to live in a place where the concept of carrying guns in pubic is seen as insane.

    What is it with Americans and guns? Why on earth should anyone other than the police or military be allowed to walk around carrying a gun? Crazy.

    @Jonathan Mason

    Jonathan, a major point is that the Supreme Court has repeatedly ruled that the police do not exist to protect individuals. That is the responsibility of the individual. Add to that a perhaps unique American thought that you shouldn’t just give a criminal what they want as that encourages them, and you can see where the thought process leads. See Castle Rock v. Gonzalez for the latest court case to address the subject.

    @FlyinHeavy

    Court cases and interpretations of the law aren’t really the point, imo. Having more guns in circulation does not equal more safety, but more danger. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be much middle ground on this question. :-(

    I carry concealed, and I’ve needed it twice to stop robberies (or something worse)!

    @theoldprofessor: “carrying guns in pubic” is seen as insane in a lot of places. I think it’s also pretty unsafe, but maybe that’s what floats your boat. Just don’t ask me to reload for you.

    I’ve been boycotting Starbucks for several months now over this issue. They may need the customers who carry guns, but I have plenty of alternatives for coffee.

    @the old professor

    I would question the converse to your statement that more guns necessarily equals less safety. Again if you feel so inclined I would encourage you to look up the Harvard study by Don Kates and Gary Mauser titled, “Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide?” The results are not exactly what is preached as gospel.

    I realize I can’t change your mind, I just offer some answers I have run across to your questions and points. Thanks for keeping it civil and have a great day. It’s bed time for me.

    Your submission to authority is outstanding. It only works as long as the “authority” is reasonable and respectful of human rights.

    BUT, “Why on earth should anyone other than the police or military be allowed to walk around carrying a gun?” begs the question of who decides what is “ALLOWED”, and what they do after that.

    In the US, the problems implied by the often-realized tendency to abuse power are offset by the civilian right to bear arms.

    Not so “Crazy” after all, bucko. It isn’t all that simple. The US solution is not perfect, and would be improved by a seriously enhanced education system. That will help anywhere.

    There’s nothing wrong with guns! Loading them with bullets is where the problems start.

    Rio Grande is one of my favorite John Wayne movies. (Not too many in that category.)
    Nice connection between “grande” drinks and a hard-core pro-gunfighting, etc., genre of movies.
