"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
Coffee chain Starbucks Corp has asked U.S. customers to leave their guns at home after being dragged into an increasingly fractious debate over U.S. gun rights in the wake of multiple mass shootings. here
Sandy Hook Elementary School, the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting, Ft. Hood terrorist attack . . . the Washington Navy Yard Shooting. I hope these names ring a bell. They were all, every single one, a “Gun Free Zone” . They all experienced the horror of mass murders.
The results of ‘gun free zones’, is that they’re an open call to the unstable and evil minded, to partake in ‘sitting duck killings’. Sitting ducks, waiting helplessly to be massacred. It’s no accident these place were chosen by the killers — they knew no one would have guns to defend themselves.
Were anyone in any of those places allowed, if not encouraged, to carry guns, these mass murders might not have happened or at least resulted in few deaths.
Guns save lives, when in the hands of a skilled individual and those skilled individuals don’t need to only be police officers. In more and more states, “open carry” is legal and where it’s been legalized, mass murders have dropped significantly or don’t happen at all. But a good, loyal liberal Democrat never lets the facts get in the way.
Starbucks is owned by a Liberal, so this is of no surprise that they’d make such a silly move. It’s the typical reactor of the “low information” individual. Maybe, like the push back Americans gave to the homosexual folks over Chick- fil- A, Starbucks will feel a hit too. Not from a round of 38’s, but from the lack of sound of the ‘ka-ching’.
But I wonder who will Starbucks blame if, heaven forbidden, some whack job with a gun walks in and starts a ‘sitting duck’ hunt? Undoubtedly, it’ll be the inanimate, unbiased gun.
