Kroger Rejects Statist Mommies

Shannon Watts and her whining Moms Demand Action Attention have turned their… ahem… guns on Kroger, hoping to force the grocery chain to ban open carry in their stores, like they claim they did with Starbucks, Target and others. (Of course, there’s a bit of exaggeration on the part of the moms as well, since none of these stores actually BANNED anything, but hey… whatever helps them sleep at night.)

Well, Kroger didn’t feel like seeing an increase in robberies, like some other businesses that saw it fit to ban armed self defense. So they told the Mommies where to stick it. The company will continue allowing both concealed and open carry, as permitted by law, which prompted another ridiculous hashtag campaign on Twitter – #GroceriesNotGuns – which is bound to work about as well as the one demanding Boko Haram brings back the girls they kidnapped in Nigeria.

The posts vary in hilarity from petulant…

To prophetic (and filled with economic ignorance)…

To downright paranoid…

But always filled with the hysterical goodness to which we’ve become accustomed! 

Thank you, Kroger for respecting your customer’s rights. I’m sure any business you may lose from the hysterical gun grabbers, you will more than recover from Americans who aren’t insane.

    Good for Kroger, standing up for the people’s right to carry in their stores. I know many people don’t carry inside stores but some do. You really can never say when you’ll need to defend yourself, it can happen anywhere.

    This one, like Target, impacts me quite a bit, as my local store is a Kroger. Of all the places I’ve carried openly, that grocery store has shown me the most support, from both fellow customers and employees. I’m beginning to think maybe it’s part of their corporate culture, which I appreciate.

  4. It may be worth the 20 mile drive to the nearest Kroger’s. Oh yes, it just may.

    I don’t shop much at Kroger here. The stores are just too packed with customers. However I do see people with OC a lot. I’ve not run into anyone that really pays any attention to it. Saw a guy yesterday in the Valero Corner Store with a OC. I though briefly asking what he was carrying more as a curiosity. I conceal carry mostly because I don’t want others to know I can defend myself. That Oh S++T look is priceless when it happens to a bad actor 🙂

    I shop at Fry’s here in Arizona (when I don’t use the base Commisary). IIRC, they are a subsidiary/affiliate of Krogers. One grandmotherly-appearing casheir there has complemented me on my tasteful open carry of my 1911 several times.

    They get a lot of my business.

    It is no surprise that Kroger would reject Moms Demand Action if you look at a map. Kroger has no stores in the Northeast. While they have some in California, 80% of the stores are in states that much more reasonable when it comes to personal protection. They are based in Cincinnati and have a large number of stores in the Midwest. They have a store in just about every town in Indiana where I live. Your chances of meeting someone with a license to carry a handgun here is about 1 in 7. Nearly everyone owns a firearm of some type. I can’t believe Shannon Watts lives only a few miles from my house – very embarrassing.

    I don’t mind seeing a holstered pistol, but I hope that the open carry folks don’t make a spectacle of themselves over this. I sympathize with the people in Texas (In Indiana, we can carry open or concealed), but carrying a rifle around while shopping is not my idea of a good time – very cumbersome.
