Now that Starbucks has urged its customers to leave their guns at home, the founder of the organization Defend Louisiana, State Rep. Jeff Thompson is suggesting that conservatives take their business to coffee shops that are “friendly to gun owners and respect the Second Amendment.”
“The home of the most expensive cup of coffee is apparently now the home of the most dangerous as well,” Thompson wrote in a posting on the Defend Louisiana website.
Thompson says he plans to host a series of events at coffee shops across the state called “Guns & Coffee.”
He’ll be registering people for a chance to win a limited edition 12 gauge Browning shotgun that his organization will give away on the opening day of the 2014 legislative session.
“You won’t find me at Starbucks,” Thompson wrote. “I choose to support small business owners who share a love of Louisiana heritage, the great outdoors and join in my efforts to defend our fight to protect our families.”
Starbucks Can Keep Its Coffee…We Will Keep Our Guns
In response to the recent decision by Starbucks to let gun owners know that they are not welcome in its coffee shops, State Representative and Defend Louisiana founder Jeff Thompson is urging conservatives to take their business to those coffee shops and diners who are friendly to gun owners and who respect the Second Amendment.
“The home of the most expensive cup of coffee is apparently now the home of one of the most dangerous as well,” said Thompson.
Over the coming weeks, Thompson will be hosting a series of events he is calling “Guns & Coffee.”
Thompson said he will be at local coffee shops and gun-friendly businesses to buy any Second Amendment supporter a cup of coffee and discuss the current battle to defend our right to protect our families.
“I hope residents in Bossier and across Louisiana come out for a free cup of coffee,” said Thompson. “You won’t find me in Starbucks… not when I know they openly try to make villains out of law abiding citizens who own guns. I choose to support small business owners who share a love of our Louisiana heritage, the great outdoors and join in my efforts to defend our right to protect our families.”
“Not only will I buy you a cup of coffee,” Thompson added. “You will also have the opportunity to register for a giveaway of a limited edition, engraved 200 years of Louisiana statehood commemorative 12 gauge Browning shotgun.”
The collectable shotgun will be given away the opening day of the 2014 Louisiana legislative session by Defend Louisiana, the initiative started to protect the rights of gun owners in Louisiana.
