Kroger Rebuffs Demanding Moms

'Mercenaries Demand Gun Bans' are continuing their assault on the 2nd amendment by targeting corporations to ban guns. They have had Kroger in their sights and will not relent. Each week we hear of a gaggle of 'Moms' pecking away at Kroger management and posting ads showing men and women with semi-auto rifles in Kroger aisles. These bully tactics have had varied levels of "phony" victories as stores like Target and Starbucks have "asked" customers to not bring guns but will not enforce it, making these hollow capitulations designed to relieve the nagging. As hollow a victory they may have had, the progressive way is to nibble away small concessions until your rights are all gone. Target's capitulation will only leave them open to more demands, now that they decided to enter the political arena. MDA and their ilk are an unrelenting mob that must be met by an immovable object. That's where we come in.

Kroger has so far rebuffed MDA with their stand to "follow state and local laws". They are not interested in entering the political arena and that is the stand we should encourage for all corporations, to toss the political ball back into the court of state legislatures. There is no benefit to a retailer for taking a public stand on every pet project that misguided busy-bodies thrust before them.

Thank Kroger for its Neutral Stance

We need to encourage Kroger and thank them for holding firm by taking the legalistic approach to their gun policy—simply following state and local laws. Kroger trusts their customers to act responsibly and have respect for the wisdom of the founding fathers in protecting our liberty with the 2nd amendment. Below, see how you can easily contact Kroger to say “thank you” for sanding firm, and to give them a word of encouragement.

Dear Kroger Management

I'm writing to thank you for standing firm in response to the gun control group that has been pestering you. I appreciate your company’s neutral stance, and I'm very encouraged to hear Kroger express faith in its customers to act responsibly. Your company’s desire to simply follow state and local laws regarding guns is appropriate, and it’s unfortunate that a small but shrill pressure group has attempted to thrust Kroger into a political debate that is unrelated to selling groceries. By continuing to respect the rights of all your customers, gun owners and otherwise, you have enhanced my whole Kroger experience and ensured my continued shopping at Kroger.

I will continue to monitor this issue via alerts from Grass Roots North Carolina.
