Washington DC – -(  On August 18th 2014 Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America launched its latest shame campaign to pressure Kroger – which owns Fred Meyer Grocery and QFC – to ban open carry of guns in its stores.

On the same day, August 18 2014, Fred Meyer released a statement indicating it will not be banning the open carry of guns but will instead continue to follow state and local laws.

According to KOIN CBS-Portland, a Fred Meyer Public Affairs representative said:

The safety of our customers and associates is one of our most important values. We don't want to have to put our associates in a position of having to confront a customer who is legally carrying a gun. That is why our longstanding policy on this issue is to follow state and local laws.

This failure to sway Fred Meyer comes after Moms Demand Action failed to sway Staples or Starbucks to ban guns on their property, as well as the failure to get Facebook to “prohibit the private selling or trading of firearms on its platforms.

Staples not only rejected Moms Demand Action's request, they actually kicked them off their property.

Facebook users be sure and drop Kroger a Thank You on their FB page.

    1. Only problem with this picture is they should have given her really crazy eyes, like the gun grabbers always airbrush on mass shooters pictures to pretend that they are crazy.

    2. Like I keep on saying, if these ‘Moms’ were kept ‘barefoot and pregnant’ they wouldn’t have time to stage protests and demonstrations. IP Address:

    3. If Kroger banned them I would have shopped somewhere else. I don’t want to be a sitting duck as I shop. If you knew no guns where in one store, but not sure about the other, which one would you hit? Only the bad guys are carrying illegal guns.

    4. If this moms demand thing can’t stand to have their hands slapped then they should keep to themselves, a rapist would not even want to get close to that one heck even a rattlesnake would avoid her, the rattler would probably tell all its friends to stay away as well. This is all because of that bloombug he wants the country disarmed and is using these pitiful things to help him do it, I wonder how much he is paying them.

    5. Good for Kroger. Still I prefer concealed carry when in public. Should a criminal enter say a convenience store bent on robbery and see someone with a gun, if the guy is bent on the robbery the guy carrying open will be his first target. The element of surprise goes a long way toward winning a confrontation and you lose it with open carry. As a 28 year veteran police officer I believe every responsible law abiding citizen should have the choice to carry open or concealed. Ultimately your protection is up to you. By the time we arrived the situation was normally over.
