Baristas are OK.
Berettas are not.
Loading up on Frappuccinos is encouraged.
Loaded firearms is discouraged.
Starbucks is taking a stand on guns…..sort of.
In a open letter from CEO Howard Schultz, the coffee giant is asking customers in “open carry” states to leave their firearms at home after “recent activities” at stores by both gun rights and gun control advocates.
Massachusetts is 1 of 12 states that requires a license or permit to openly carry a handgun.
Schultz points out this a request — not a ban.
He wants employees to focus on brewing coffee and not the brewing debate over gun laws.
