“Just before 5:30 a.m. Monday, employees of the Starbucks in the 1800 block of W. Broad St. called police about a suspicious man outside the store. According to police, the suspect then ran into the business, and attacked the two employees,” nbc12.com reports. “Both baristas sustained facial injuries, with the suspect kicking an officer who arrived on scene. A 65-year-old employee is now facing a difficult recovery from serious injuries, and remains at VCU Medical Center in intensive care. Police reported that the suspect . . . stole no items or money during the incident, with the Starbucks reopening a short time later.”
So, tell me again how disarming the public magically gets rid of ‘gun violence’? Do you think this thug gave any thought to Starbucks’ CEO Howard Shultz’ recent request to leave legally carried guns at home? This guy KNEW that the customers and employees are not allowed to practice their constitutional right to bear arms in this coffee shop. We can give a big thanks to Mom’s Demand Action for Gun Sense in America for that one. Where are their opinions now? Where are their trending social media hashtags in response to this?
‘Gun free zones’ are only ‘gun free’ for the people who can protect you in a situation like this. Nothing seemed to have stopped this guy from walking in and hurting people.
