Join ITS Tactical for the 2013 Starbucks Buycott in Fort Worth this Valentine’s Day

by February 12, 2013 02/12/13

Three things that you need to be doing this Valentine’s Day, other than remembering flowers and chocolates are to Grab $2 bills from your bank, an  Original Guns & Coffee Patch from OP Tactical  and head down to your local Starbucks to support the “BUYcott” for Starbucks Appreciation Day.

If you don’t know the backstory on why we’re supporting Starbucks, check out  our article from last year, when the National Gun Victims Action Council decided to start a movement for all anti-gun supporters to  boycott Starbucks last Valentine’s Day, February 14th, 2012. In response to this boycott, a few bloggers started a  Starbucks Appreciation Day  “BUYcott” to counter the NGVAC’s rally.

This year, we’d like to continue the tradition and encourage everyone to participate in the 2013 Starbucks Appreciation Day. The call-out is to grab a few $2 bills (which justly portrays the signing of the Declaration of Independence on the reverse of the $2 bill) and head to Starbucks on Valentine’s Day to buy a few cups of coffee. Even if you can’t source $2 bills from your bank, make your presence known!

On February 14th, the ITS Crew will be at the Starbucks here in Ft. Worth off  Hwy. 820 and Pipline Rd.  from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. enjoying a cup of coffee paid for with $2 bills. Come out and meet up with us, we’ll have some swag with us to pass out too!

Somewhere along the line, the date for the BUYcott changed from 2/14 to 2/22 to better reinforce the symbolism supporting 2A. I've got my challenge coins (ITS and Guns & Coffee) and will be visiting my local Starbucks on Friday 2/22...along with my concealed carry and my fistful of $2 bills.

Regardless, it's great to see so many people finding creative ways to show support of 2A rights.

Wish I was close to your location to share a cup of Joe with the ITS Crew. Keep up the great work Bryan and crew.

Bryan,

Enjoyed meeting everybody and making the guys at Starbucks wonder why so many people are paying with $2 bills. You should put it out and get together more than just once a year. Thanks for the patches and coin!! They're already part of the EDC.

I feel bad for Starbucks still having to deal with the rumor that they do not support the troops. Started in 2004 and almost a decade later that rumor still runs.

I usually wouldn't, but I think I'll open carry to the Starbucks down the road from the plant I work in.

Not sure where you're seeing this, can you post some more information on it being moved to the 22nd? We simply kept the tradition that was started last year, alive.
