Support the 2nd Amendment and Stick it to the National Gun Victims Action Council this Valentine’s Day

By Bryan Black

A few people, including our friends at The Survival Podcast, have brought an issue to our attention that we all need to support and supporters of the 2nd Amendment.

The National Gun Victims Action Council has decided to start a movement for all anti-gun supporters to boycott Starbucks this Valentine’s Day, February 14th, 2012. In response to this boycott, a few bloggers have started a Starbucks Appreciation Day “buycott” to counter the NGVAC’s rally.

To participate in the 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!

How do you do that and why all this pressure on Starbucks? Glad you asked!

Starbucks and the 2nd Amendment

As a whole, Starbucks has never done anything other than to support the local laws where their shops are located. This means that if that State/County allows Concealed Carry, then so do they. Click here to read about the original issue with the Brady Campaign we covered here back in 2010.

When Starbucks came under pressure from such circus animals as the Brady Campaign, it prompted the crew of and OP Tactical to produce the awesome Guns and Coffee Patch back in the spring of 2010.

This was the first iteration of any kind of pro-gun Starbucks patch and will always be the true patch for supporting the movement. Pick yours up today from OP Tactical  (in traditional green & white or subdued as seen on the right) and even if you can’t buy a cup of joe with a $2 bill on Valentine’s Day, you can always walk in wearing a Guns and Coffee Patch and as the Brady Campaign put it, “intimidate patrons” with your open or concealed carry!
