In September of this year the Starbucks CEO sent out a memo asking all gun owners to leave their guns at home. The company originally just followed all local laws relating to guns and had no problem allowing gun owners to legally carry their firearms into Starbucks locations throughout the US.
The memo said,
“I am writing today with a respectful request that customers no longer bring firearms into our stores or outdoor seating areas.”
Well it looks like a Colorado Springs criminal is ignoring that memo. KKTV.com has reported that an armed robber entered a Starbucks pointing a gun at the employee behind the cash register demanding money.
The Starbucks employee gave the gunman the money and the crook ran out of the establishment that so politely asked law abiding gun owners to no bring guns to their stores.
It’s no surprise that a criminal ignored the store policy since he already ignored the law to rob the Starbucks. But it looks like Starbucks wants to make sure criminals don’t have to worry about being harmed when using their own guns to carry out their robberies.
