Video: NRA Argues Starbucks' Ban On Guns Is Similar To Ban On Gays
Starbucks announced last week that the company was “respectfully requesting that customers no longer bring firearms into our stores or outdoor seating areas—even in states where “open carry” is permitted—unless they are authorized law enforcement personnel.”
Crazy town, right? An establishment requesting that randoms not bring guns inside.
Well, apparently the National Rifle Association doesn't appreciate this request and one NRA rep is arguing that the move by Starbucks is exactly the same as anti-gay discrimination.
Colion Noir, a 29-year-old attorney and news commentator for the NRA, has responded to Starbucks’ recent open letter requesting that customers no longer bring guns into their stores, even in states where it is legal to openly carry a firearm.
Mr Noir filmed his response “in the wake of Starbucks coming out the proverbial anti-gun closet.”
He continues to say: “Yes, I said anti-gun — because when you request that I don’t bring my gun with me into your store, that’s an anti-gun stance. Think about it. When you say, ‘We’re not pro-or-anti-gay but please all gay people – we respectfully ask that you not bring your gayness into the store. I mean, we’ll still serve you, but if you can leave the gayness at the door, we would much appreciate it.’
“Now if that’s what they said I highly doubt Tom Ford would go start designing a black Tuscan coffee signature cologne in
Yeah...that sounds like a stretch to us, primarily because we can't leave our gayness in the glove compartment.
What do you think of the NRA's argument, Instincters?
