“It was not that long ago that a gun toting lunatic shot and killed several Starbucks employees in Washington DC. Have these young employees already been forgotten? I am done with Starbucks. It seems like there is one on every corner in my town - but I prefer the indenpendent, non gun-toting competition.”

“Does gun toting = lunatic? If this Criminal would have walked in to a store to shoot people and there happened to be a law abiding citizen toting a gun, that same law abiding citizen could have stopped the criminal from killing people! If starbucks said no guns allowed in the store would the criminal have said " I cant kill people here because they don't want me to bring a gun into the store"?”

“An amazing feat of logic, you may have just given the BEST reason why concealed carry laws are not only just, but practical.”

“Is the carrying of firearms, whether concealed or openly displayed, by civilians in the locale that you inhabit. If it is not, then for what reason would you expect to encounter individuals who are legally carrying firearms in a Starbucks establishment within the locale that you inhabit? If it is, then for what reason do you believe that all such independent establishments to which you refer prohibit the carrying of firearms by patrons?”

In a city which forbade the carry of firearms. Hmmmm.... Yeah, that really makes your case.”

“If someone had been there to defend those employees, maybe they would still be alive.
By the way, how many lawful gun owners are in Washington D.C.? My bet is that this lunatic didn't legally obtain his gun and was already breaking the law before he ever fired a shot.”
