The Gun Debate: Mickey Dee's and Dunkin's Weigh In

" This week, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz caused a stir by asking customers to leave their guns at home.

While Schultz stressed that customers who did legally bring guns into stores wouldn't be kicked out, the comments offended a lot of people.

We asked two Starbucks competitors, McDonald's and Dunkin' Donuts, if they had gun policies for their thousands of restaurants.

Both companies said they simply abide by the laws of that state or region.

Here's a statement from McDonald's spokeswoman Lisa McComb:

“We recognize that there is a lot of emotion and passion surrounding the issue of firearms and open carry weapons laws.

While we respect the differing views of all our customers, McDonald’s company-owned restaurants follow local, state and federal laws as it relates to open carry weapons in our restaurants.

For franchisee-owned restaurants, operational decisions regarding open carry weapon laws are made by the independent franchisee.

That said, as with all aspects of operating a McDonald’s restaurant, we expect our franchisees and their crew to follow local, state and federal laws.”

And Dunkin' Donuts spokeswoman Michelle King:

"Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins restaurants are owned and operated by individual franchisees who are required to follow all federal, state and local laws with regard to firearms."

Well look at that, they found a way to remain "neutral" without telling gun owners to fuck off. Who'da'thunk?
When they come for my guns; It is not my right, at that point,
but my responsibility to respond in the name of liberty.

And if that's how they prefer to stay out of the political brouhaha, it's fine by me.

Abide by local laws and be the responsible neighbor. Not bad.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

Sounds much the same as Starbucks policy was, until people decided to start holding rallies in their stores....

I don't disagree with your statement, but there was also a lot of pressure from the anti-2A crowd towards Starbucks. Starbucks was then counter-pressured by the pro-2A side, hence the rallies. If the same anti-2A groups were giving Dunkin Donuts and McDonalds a hard time, I'd imagine we'd see more pro-2A rallies at those franchises.

I'm sorry... why would anyone patronize McD's? That is not "food", people. Just because you can put it in your mouth doesn't mean you should (except in "relations"). If there were any justice, Dunkin Donuts would be charged with high treason against morning baked goods kind. McD's could give away firearms and hummers, and I still wouldn't partake.
tolerance for failure meter... LOW

Let me ask you one question. When's the last time you had an egg mcmuffin?

"Egg" mcmuffin? At least 10 years... for any McD's.

I don't eat much of McDonald's food, but when traveling, the Fruit & Maple Oatmeal and a cup of coffee make a decent breakfast. You can't beat the price with their $1.00 coffee (any size) around here.

I know the question wasn't directed at me, but I'll chime in anyhow:
I've never had an Egg McMuffin, and it's a pretty safe bet that I never will (I'd have to be damn desperate). I haven't eaten anything from McDonalds for so long I can't remember which decade it might have been. I do remember that when I was much younger I did eat there a few times and didn't like the "food" at all.
(And that was long before any talk about health/nutrition issues or quality of ingredients discussions were in the news.[Even before the multi-million dollar "Hot coffee in the lap" debacle]). The first time I ate at a McDonalds the burgers were about 25¢ and they didn't taste good then either.
I suppose I could choke one down if I'd get a hummer for doing it. (depending on who was going to give the hummer. Tongue )
There are three types of people in the world:
Those who make things happen,
Those who watch things happen,
And those who wonder what happened.
