Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association
HB2011 and HB1243 Updates

So far, there hasn't been a 2nd Consideration vote on either of these bills. WE NEED TO KEEP UP THE PRESSURE, and continue to contact our legislators - ask them to tell House leadership to bring these bills to a vote! Ask them to vote YES on HB2011, and NO on the Universal Background Check amendment. In addition, the FOAC is requesting support for an amendment proposed to HB1243 (Mental Health Records for Firearms Purchases) that, if passed, will allow HB1243 to restore firearm rights to those who have recovered from a mental illness.

Default Starbucks Anti-gun Boycott Saturday 8/24/13

Apparently the support of gunowners for Starbucks' policies (following state law) are causing the anti-gun left to lose it. They're actually planning to skip going to Starbucks for their $18 Grand Mocha Frappe Capucinno with skim milk this Saturday as a way of protesting that

"we donít feel comfortable going into a setting where there is likely one or many people carrying weapons."

Now, I don't even drink coffee, but after that article I plan to stop by my local Starbucks tomorrow morning and make up for the lost revenue from the one or two sheeple that don't show up for their latte. Anyone care to join me at the Starbucks in Jennersville, PA? Or join in at your own local Starbucks?

The Mrs and I went last night, we're going again tonight, and throughout the weekend.

For the most part we only manage an occasional trip to Starbucks, but we're stepping up a bit this weekend, not only to help Starbucks (as if they really need it) but mainly to counter and piss-off the antis.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that Starbucks isn't going to miss the couple of bucks not spent by the antis in their next quarterly report. I'm also pretty sure they secretly love the free publicity.

But boycotting a business who's policy is to follow the law of the state where the store is located...a typical liberal tactic and one that I don't think should prosper this time.

I have been on Starbuck's page arguing with these idiots for what seems like forever.

Let them boycott. . wait. . I thought they already were boycotting. So does this mean they are being super serious about it?

We dont have a Starbucks nearby, so I'll just grab a bag of their ground coffee at the grocery store later.

There is a Starbucks less than a mile from me. I hate their coffee and it is over priced.

I'll be picking one up for the wife and one for me tomorrow morning

Well.... This is not the first freedom hater boycott of them.

The boycotts never work. I suspect they backfire.

If there is a boycott on, I think someone didn't get the memo out in time. I just stopped by the Starbucks on 15 @ Trindle road - OC. There were about 6 people in the dining room, and about 10 people in line. It's not a huge storefront, so it was about 1/2 full. Not one comment was made about the Sig 220 on my hip.
