DESCHUTES COUNTY SHERIFF LARRY BLANTON SAYS OVER-THE-TOP GUN RIGHTS ACTIVISTS MAY BE HURTING THEIR OWN CAUSE.
 
FM NEW 100 and 1110 kbnd news spoke with BLANTON ABOUT THE RECENT DEBATE THAT ERRUPTED AFTER STARBUCK'S C-E-O ASKED CUSTOMERS *NOT* TO COME IN PACKING HEAT.
 
HOWARD SCHULTZ's STATEMENT WAS IN RESPONSE TO RUN RIGHTS GROUPS COMING INTO STARBUCKS IN FORCE DURING "CUSTOMER APPRECIATion DAYS."
 
SOME CUSTOMERS WERE OFFENDED BY THE BLATANT DISPLAY OF FIREARMS.
"ALSO MY OPINION- FOR PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS DON'T SHOVE THAT INTO SOMEONE'S FACE- AND FOR THOSE AT STARBUCKS OR ELSEWHERE- IF YOU DON'T LIKE WHAT'S GOING ON THERE GO SOMEWHERE ELSE."
 
AND LAST JANUARY ANOTHER BIG GUN RIGHTS STORY WAS IN PORTLAND WHEN Two Oregon men carrIED semiautomatic rifles on their backs THROUGH A NEIGHBORHOOD.  
 
THAT caused alarm and even prompted a learning center to go into lockdown.
 
but the men said they were just exercising their Second Amendment right to bear arms in public.
