This Saturday, Aug. 24, an advocacy group hopes to place the world's largest coffee chain in the middle of the gun control debate.
"Skip Starbucks Saturday" organizers claim the company’s policy of allowing people to tote guns in the store if state law permits it is part of the gun control problem. USAToday.com reports the group aims to fix that by staging the national boycott.
"Many moms are unaware that if they take their children to Starbucks, their children may be standing next to a customer who has a loaded weapon," Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, was quoted by USA Today as saying.
Starbucks allows guns in its stores in 43 states.
