A few months ago, gun owners were boycotting Staples because a gun seller was excluded from a contest. This time, it’s Moms Demand Action that are trying to do to them what they did to Starbucks.
“Last month there was an accidental shooting at a Staples in North Carolina, and there have been other incidents of gun violence inside stores,” said Watts, who lobbied Starbucks and Schultz prior to their policy change.
“Staples allows individual stores to prohibit guns, but there is no explicit corporate policy banning firearms.””
Frankly, I don’t know what to do about this one. I don’t shop at Staples, I’m perfectly happy with Office Depot and other gun-friendly places like that. Perhaps this is an opportunity for Staples to stand for the Second Amendment, although I won’t hold my breath.
