Love the Starbuck's CEO. He is also an advocate for following state laws regarding firearms. He gets flack from anti gunners because he says that if states allow citizens to carry, they are welcome at Starbucks. Drives the gun control proponents crazy when he tells them he won't post "no carry" signs in any of his retail locations.
Basically, it sounds like he pisses off anyone that has issues with personal freedoms. That is my kind of CEO.
Interestingly, (to me anyway) a large portion of the people who believe in the personal freedom that the 2nd amendment provides do not believe in gays should have the right to marry each other.
I am not sure that is really accurate. I, for one, believe in 2A and believe gays should have the right to marry. Off the top of my head, most of the individuals who jump into the 2A threads in support of firearms feel the same way.
Also, you are comparing apples to oranges. The Constitution specifically delineates the right to bear arms. It says nothing about marriage. Of course, people like me argue that the 14th prohibits discrimination b/t same and opposite sex marriage. But, marriage itself is not a specific right set forth in the Constitution.
You may be right, I think that I was not up to date on how support for gay marriage has grown in the US. 49% today compared to 32% in 2003. Please don't ask for links, I am a lazy, lazy man.
Question... do your courts not have the right to rule on what is meant by the Constitution? For example... Canadian courts ruled that section 15 of the Charter of RIghts and Freedoms
15. (1) Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.
while not specifically mentioning sexual orientation it includes it in the spirit of the law. This ruling has lead to other judges confirming that banning same sex marriages goes against the Charter.
