Starbucks: Don't bring guns into stores
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Starbucks is asking customers not to bring guns into its stores.
But the Seattle-based coffee chain is not banning them.
The company's CEO, Howard Schultz says the new policy is the result of Starbucks Appreciation Days in which gun rights advocates turn up at Starbucks cafes packing weapons.
He says those events have mischaracterized the company's stance on the issue of guns and gun rights and made some customers feel uncomfortable.
Schultz hopes people will honor the request not to bring in guns but says the company will still serve those who do.
