as NYS does not allow OC, you can show your support by wearing some sort of Gun related tee shirt or other clothing, and/or paying with a Two Dollar Bill (available from your bank- legal tender).
There is nothing wrong with owning a pistol that is not a model of 1911 in .45 ACP.
Owning two pistols, neither of which is a Model of 1911 in .45 ACP is just WRONG.

ARRGH!

I hate that myth.

In most areas, a 20 oz cup of coffee at Starbucks costs about US$0.20 more than 7/11 or the like. Really, not over priced at all IMO

yeah, people compare a venti mocha latte with soy and an extra shot to a regular cup of coffee from dunkin or 7-11.  if you just look at a large cup of brewed coffee its not much different.  the only problem is, it so damn tempting to get the good stuff when you walk in.

I just went to the bank, got a fistful of 2 dollar bills and went to Starbucks.
THEY HAVE A 12oz Coffee for $1.75, you don't have to go nuts...
Handed the clerk my 2 dolla bills, I said "I bet you don't see alotta those bills".
She laughed, I told her why I'm paying in 2 dollar bills, and she said "Neat!"

OK- I will admit that I have only been to s Starbucks two or three times. For one thing, I don't like to make a lot of complicated decisions in the morning before I have my coffee. And apparently it's frowned upon to say "Can I just get a cup of coffee without any weird crap in it?

Second thing is- why do they call the kid with the zits and an eyebrow piercing a "Barrista"? WTF is up with that? That's like going into my corner liquor store and calling the guy who works there a "Sommolier"- it's hard to beat that on the pretentiousness scale. It's coffee for Pete's sake!

i like plain black coffee. That means i need it to have flavor without anything in it, which means i need a nice bold coffee. starbucks has bold, dunkin does not. Guns and dark coffee for the win. In this day and age I will support anyone and anything that supports 2A rights. even if i pay 20 cents more per cup of joe.

only thing that sucks about starbucks is theyre so slow from all the people ordering fancy stuff.

According to a statment starbucks madefor the states that dont allow open carry.. You are prohibited to do so in their establishment..

http://www.thetrutha...ucks-on-feb-14/

"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."

btw im going to the bank right now for $2 bills

Got my large black decaf ($2.12) and because the decaf was still brewing and it took a minute they gave me a coupon for a free cup at any Starbucks...works for me.

I guess you didn't notice that the kid with zits that made your coffee at Starbucks was an American

It's why I go. I want coffee that tastes like coffee. To me, they are the best.

The Starbucks in Bohemia is THE BEST! They are one of the busiest, but you are in and out pretty quick there. Besides, isn't that what they make Smartphones for? Keeping us occupied while we wait on line, right?
