Will never step foot into Starbucks with a Wild West gun policy in place. I will discourage our community from approving the development of Starbucks in our town. What are you thinking? How would your corporate conscience justify a violent incident in one of your stores? The public is not brain dead. I strongly advise you reconsider your current policy if not out of respect for your customers than for the economic impact of a boycott which will GROW. I am sincere in my comments.

No more Starbucks for me while guns are welcome in your stores!
Linda W. 13835 Richford N.Y.
I love, love, love Starbucks coffee. I hate, hate, hate open carry. I will let my dollars do the talking and stay with the boycott against Starbucks until reason prevails.
Margaret B. 33844 Haines City Florida
I miss you Starbucks, but I don’t want to be in your shops if another customer can carry a gun.
Robyn S. 30044 Lawrenceville Ga.
Gross, I had no idea Starbucks shops permitted firearms. As I consider this a threat to public safety, not least my own family’s personal safety, I will be joining this boycott for as long as it takes.
Emily S. 85712 Tucson Az.
My wife and I were shocked to hear you allow guns in your stores , when you can easily stop this practice. We will stop using our “gold” cards as of today.
Mike P. 30904 Augusta Ga.
You obviously do not care about the safety of your customers and I will no longer use your stores until guns are not allowed in them. No one needs to be carrying guns into a coffee shop.
Karen H. 87199 Albuquerque NM
I used to buy only your coffee from the supermarket each week, I will not do that again until you make each and every Starbucks store safe and sane to enter by banning people from entering your outlets carrying a gun. Guns kill people and people kill people, we can at least try to stop this craziness by not allowing people to carry a gun into a coffee shop. Until you regain your sanity and make your stores safer you will lose all my business and all my friends (who I will talk into boycotting you) business as well.

My knitting group has been knitting at one of your stores for quite a few years. I will not go back until I hear that you have changed your policy. Also, I have sent information to all the group and I hope that they will decide to meet elsewhere until you change your policy.
Alice M. 10025 New York N,Y,
It a shame that your stand on guns will turn not only me off your products but many more as they realize no one wants to sit next to someone with a gun, who could off others and themselves in some psychotic rage.
John H. 14464 Hamlin, New York
I very much admire Starbuck’s policy on marriage for everyone, which makes me all the more surprised and disappointed that you would not take the same life affirming position on making your stores safe, gun-free environments. I will miss my Starbuck’s lattes but I’m prepared to sustain this boycott for the rest of my life if necessary.
Joanne L. 90405 Santa Monica, California
If you are really concerned about global responsibility, as your website says you are, truly be responsible. Do not allow guns in any of your stores in any of the 50 states. I will NOT frequent your stores until you ban guns and I can feel safe again getting a cup of your coffee.
GW H. 10019 New York, New York
Starbucks has been an integral part of our family for many years. Two of our three daughters worked at Starbucks, learning so many good employment skills in their tenure there. To this day, coffee is made the “Starbucks” way, dark and full-bodied.
Please rethink your policy of allowing guns in your stores. I can’t imagine not frequenting the store for my decaf soy lattes, but neither can I imagine sharing my space in line with a gun-carrying fellow patron. I will not feel safe at Starbucks until this gun policy has been rescinded.
Mary B. 06040 Manchester, Connecticut
I buy a lot of Starbucks, beans for home and drinks on the road (my job has lots). Please don’t let folks with guns in your store or I will not be there.
Dorothee C. 32952 Merritt Island, Florida
I have had 1,000′s of non-fat lattes and pieces of gingerbread with cream cheese over the past 20 years
(or so). I will hate to not drink or eat in your stores since it’s nearly a daily ritual for me. However,
I also am vehemently for gun control and need to state my disagreement with your gun policy. Until you change your policy, I’ll have to go for my cuppa elsewhere.
Judy L. 93010 Camarillo, California
We’re through as are the folks we would normally meet at your stores. Change your policies or lose your customers.
T. R.H. 06351 Jewett City, Connecticut
Even though I thoroughly enjoy Starbucks coffees and your friendly baristas, I feel compelled to join this boycott until you show the common sense and social responsibility of publicly banning handguns and assault rifles from all your premises- concealed or hidden.
Sarah G. 47201 Columbus, Indiana
You are responsible for your customers’ safety, not their supposed rights
Walter R. 78676 Wimberley, TX
I had been buying your coffee and frequenting your shops for many years. Have stopped and will no longer consume any Starbucks’ products or services. Too bad; I did like your comfortable seats, friendly environment and many products. However, guns I do not like. Ban them!
Elizabeth C. 10965 PEARL RIVER, NY
I am a pastor who uses Starbucks as my second office. Please make the policy change asap so I can come back!
Kara W. S. 60641 Chicago, Illinois
I regularly met with clients and friends in the many downtown starbucks. I’m not a caribou coffee fan, but will be switching to their products until some sort of public action is taken by Starbucks to discourage handguns in your stores.
Gregory B. 30303 Atlanta, Georgia
I am a Starbucks Card holder, but in conscience cannot use it until Starbucks gun policy changes
Richard B. 05149 Ludlow, Vermont
I shall purchase my coffee from Duncan Donuts until this is resolved.
Stephan R. 27103 Winston Salem, North Carolina
Please live up to your reputation as a socially responsible corporation. The abundance of guns in the US makes us less safe not more, and your acceptance of open carry makes your stores less safe.
Jonathan H. 24014 Roanoke, Virginia
I will never set foot in your store again until you prohibit the carrying of weapons into your stores
Marie L. 27106 Winston Salem
I have been a happy Starbucks customer for many years. I have a gold Starbucks reward card, and buy pounds of coffee for the office. There is a Starbucks store on the corner where i work, and I enjoy sitting outside with grande bold or a peppermint mocha. I am so sorry to learn that, with all its otherwise progressive attitudes, Starbucks seems intransigent on the gun issue. I ask you to do the right thing. Until then, I’m not coming by any more, and I will stand out front of the store periodically and urge others not to shop there either.
Robert T. Y. 60604 Chicago, Illinois
Just to be clear, I’m a long time and loyal Starbucks customer, but your position about guns is unconscionable and I will boycott your stores, and encourage friends and parishioners to do the same, until you ban guns from your stores AND support sensible gun laws.
Stephen S. 35233 Birmingham, Alabama
I have been a regular consumer of your coffee products and frequented your shops on a weekly basis for more than eight years. I was horrified to learn of Starbucks’ position regarding allowing guns into your shops. Consequently, I will no longer purchase any Starbucks’ products or visit Starbucks’ shops, and will strongly urge all friends and family members (many of whom also have been regular consumers and patrons of Starbucks) as well as acquaintances and strangers I may have the opportunity to inform about your policy, to boycott Starbucks until you refuse to allow guns into your establishments.
Elizabeth C. 10960 Nyack, New York
I have been a daily customer, but I will not return to Starbucks until I hear that you have changed your position on guns in your stores.
Eric G. 12561 New Paltz, NY
As a stockholder, I implore you to adopt the ban on guns in retail restaurants. The individuals that carry guns are not the socially conscious customers that frequent Starbucks and order $3.00 coffees. It is in your best interest and the public safety to ban all guns from all Starbucks stores.
