I got my reply from Starbucks
Thank you for your feedback regarding Starbucks' policy on open carry laws.I took their survey and told them I was appalled by their lack of concern for their workers. They need bullet proof vests at the very least and should have bullet proof counters to hide behind while the 'public debate' continues. There 'is significant and genuine passion surrounding the issue of open carry.' And one side is armed with triggers a flick of the wrist away.
At Starbucks, we deeply respect the views of our customers and recognize that there is significant and genuine passion surrounding the issue of open carry weapons laws. We comply with local laws and statutes in the communities we serve. Our long-standing approach to this issue remains unchanged and we abide by the laws that permit open carry in 43 U.S. states. Where these laws don't exist, openly carrying weapons in our stores is prohibited.
As the public debate around this issue continues, we encourage customers and advocacy groups from both sides to share their input with their public officials. We are extremely sensitive to the issue of gun violence in our society and believe that supporting local laws is the right way for us to ensure a safe environment for both partners and customers.
I am hoping the attorney for any employee injured because of Starbucks idiotic policy will make the Starbucks policy abundantly responsible for any injury to any employee. Even shooting ranges have safety restrictions.
Nearly all public ranges require that all guns be unloaded prior to entering, or leaving, the range facility, irrespective of whether one holds a concealed carry license. The same is true for rental guns leaving or returning to the rental counter, going to and from the shooting range. hereSo how much is Starbucks going to pay the employee that ensures all guns at the gun party are not loaded.
Would an employee be allowed to open carry in a disciplinary meeting? Would an employee be allowed to open carry during a lay off meeting? Would an employee be allowed to open carry during a salary negotiation? Does the management open carry during these workplace negotiations?
I sent a second survey and told them that we know the difference between open carry and a gun party.
