The Starbucks chain recently was targeted for a national boycott by an anti-gun group - National Gun Victim’s Action Council - for allowing local laws where their stores are located to determine whether gun owners can patronize its stores while armed. The boycott is scheduled to start on February 14th.
In response to the announced boycott, pro-gun advocacy groups all over the United States are launching a Starbucks Appreciation Day. As such, all gun owners who legally carry firearms will be asked to patronize the chain on Valentines Day in support of Starbucks' refusal to get dragged in the gun control debate by anti-gun groups.
Accordingly, Ector - a well known Carry Concealed Weapon/Concealed Pistol License (CCW/CPL) Instructor and Gun Rights Activist - is organizing a local event in support of Starbucks. His event - one of thousands expected across the country - will be held at the Royal Oak Starbucks which is located at 31105 Woodward Avenue, Royal Oak, MI, 48073 between the hours of 12 noon and 2:00pm. Afterwards, interested patrons will be visiting a local gun range - two blocks away - to shoot at targets.
