Starbucks is asking espresso drinkers nationwide to no longer bring fire arms to their coffee shops.
The company wants to be a gun-free zone inside stores and outdoor seating areas.
“We are not pro or anti-gun,” says Starbucks CEO Howard Shultz says no official gun policies will be enforced. “We are respectfully requesting that those customers who are carrying a gun just honor the request and not bring the gun into Starbucks.”
Starbucks employees are instructed to never confront an armed customer.
No signs are to be posted that specifically state guns are not welcome.
