Hot Coffee and Heat at Starbucks (SBUX)

Starbucks (SBUX) was the recipient of some love from gun supporters on Friday, as the coffee chain, which has decided to stay away from the emotional fray, got a "thank you" from gun and Second Amendment supporters for not attempting to interfere with their right to bear arms.

The wise decision by Starbucks was to simply say that the position of the company is to comply with local laws concerning firearms.

In Virginia, Ed Levine, founder of Virginia Open Carry, organized the special day to show appreciation to Starbucks for remaining neutral in the emotional gun control debate and battle.

“Gun Owners Support Starbucks Day” was very successful, and participants are planning on making it an annual event.

February 22 was chosen for a reason by the event organizers, according to their Facebook page, who say the 2/22 is a reference to three reasons the Second Amendment was designed:

2 = defense of ourselves.
2 = defense of our families and communities.
2 = defense of our great country.”

Below is an awesome Starbucks cup with the gun-shaped handle.
