Moms Demand Action Boycotts Kroger For Protecting Your Rights

Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)-Fresh off an April 11 2015 Nashville rally where only 150 people showed up (vs the NRA’s 80,000) to support her, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America founder Shannon Watts announced that her gun control group is officially boycotting Kroger until the grocer reverses policy and bans the open carry of guns.

Moms Demand Action launched their campaign against Kroger on August 18 2014, but the grocer quickly told them that they trust their customers to be responsible and would not be changing their policy.

Kroger affiliates Harris Teeter and Fred Meyer both told Moms Demand they would not be banning guns either.

Moreover, on March 25 2015 Kroger CFO Michael Schlotman restated his company’s position, saying they reject Moms Demand Action’s requests to ban guns and explained that Kroger has done just fine by following local and state laws with their gun policy.

So Moms Demand Action is stepping it up. On April 14 [freedom hater] Shannon Watts announced that Moms were not going to shop at Kroger until the grocer submits to their requests.

Watts said: “Moms will put our money will our mouths are and shop at stores that put our safety first.”

In doing this, Watts overlooked the fact that Kroger’s profit jumped “21 percent” for the third quarter of 2014 versus the third quarter of 2013–and this is after refused to ban guns. And she also forgets that Kroger is not the only business to reject Moms Demand Action’s gun-ban requests in the last year, but she is singling them out in hopes that they will cave under pressure.

The truth is, by rejecting Moms Demand Action, Kroger, Harris Teeter, and Fred Meyer, simply followed the path taken by Staples–who kicked Moms Demand off their property in March 2014–and Starbucks, whose CEO refused to ban guns in his coffee stores in spite of pressure from Moms Demand Action.

But Moms Demand Action is boycotting Kroger to teach them a lesson…[lol]

Sounds to me that if the “Moms” were getting a little more “action”, they wouldn’t be so bitchy.

I have shopped at City Market in Grand Junction, CO for years and will to continue to shop there. City Market is a Kroger store, by the way. Thanks Kroger for making an intelligent decision.

Groceries AND Guns. And ammo. Some Kroger stores have FFLs and sell guns and ammo.

Interestingly enough, MDA says the “Moms” are going to “shop at stores that put (their) safety first,” yet ALL the available data (of which there are now a LOT) clearly show that it is safer to shop where guns are NOT banned than where they are.

I wish Kroger would open. Store where I am that way I could go shopping there as well. These moms demand action things re just doing what bloombug is telling them to do, besides look at the fact that this Watts thing goes around with armed security, talking about being a hypocrite, she wants guns gone from the public well she should disarm her security first and show that she isn’t afraid of being out there without. I stand behind and with Kroger foods on their sstancewhen it comes to firearms.

“Moms Demand”…again? The only reason they are still around is Bloomturds money…and the fact they are absolutely clueless…about our freedoms and the rights the Constitution gives us. IF they had done all this 40 years ago…they would have been labeled a “subversive group” towards the U.S. Personally…I think they ARE subversive along with a whole bunch of other liberal and “special interest” groups…that infest our nation.
