You know what else doesn’t mix? Straight people and Starbucks. Just saying …
Via USA Today:
Starbucks is becoming a gun-free zone.
After months of wrangling over the highly-emotional issue, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz late Tuesday announced that guns are no longer permitted in Starbucks stores — or in Starbucks outdoor seating areas.
Schultz made the comments in an open letter to his “Fellow Americans” that was posted on the company’s website.
In an interview with USA TODAY, also Tuesday, Schultz says: “The presence of a weapon in our stores is unsettling and upsetting for many of our customers.”
But, to be clear, Starbucks will not slap an outright ban on guns, he says, because enforcing such a ban “would potentially require our partners to confront armed customers.”
