Starbucks Asks Customers Not To Bring Guns Into Outlets

 

 

” The coffee chain Starbucks has asked its customers in the US to stop bringing guns into its outlets.

Starbucks has not imposed a ban, but says guns “should not be part of the Starbucks experience”.

The firm has recently become a focus for the pro- and anti-gun lobby, with supporters of the right to carry arms holding a Starbucks Appreciation Day.

But it said it wanted to give customers “a safe and comfortable respite from the concerns of daily life”.

Starbucks has a policy of defaulting to local laws when it comes to whether people can take guns into its 7,000 US outlets.

The company’s stance has won support from the pro-gun lobby, and in August campaigners staged an appreciation day at several outlets.”
