Kroger Bandwagons, Asks Customers not to Open Carry in Store

While we are all in disbelief at Walmart’s anti-constitutional stance, asking customers not to open carry in the store, Kroger has joined them.

The grocery retailer made the request just hours after Walmart announced that they will no longer carry certain types of ammo, and asked customers not to open carry on Tuesday.

Kroger Corporate Affairs Vice President Jessica Adelman said, “Kroger is respectfully asking that customers no longer openly carry firearms into our stores,” adding that this also goes for stores in states where open carry is allowed, with the exception of law enforcement.

“We are also joining those encouraging our elected leaders to pass laws that will strengthen background checks and remove weapons from those who have been found to pose a risk for violence,” she said.

“Kroger has demonstrated with our actions that we recognize the growing chorus of Americans who are no longer comfortable with the status quo and who are advocating for concrete and common-sense gun reforms,” Adelman added.

The Ohio-based company said it made a decision to exit the firearm and ammunition business a year ago and stopped selling them in its Fred Meyer stores in the Pacific Northwest.

Kroger is also joining Walmart in “encouraging our elected leaders to pass laws that will strengthen background checks and remove weapons from those who have been found to pose a risk for violence.”

Other retailers like Starbucks, Target and Wendy’s have made similar requests in recent years.

“A year ago, Kroger made the conscious decision to completely exit the firearm and ammunition business when we stopped selling them in our Fred Meyer stores in the Pacific Northwest,” Adelman said, “Kroger has demonstrated with our actions that we recognize the growing chorus of Americans who are no longer comfortable with the status quo and who are advocating for concrete and common sense gun reforms.”

Who cares if there are a number of people “uncomfortable” with other Americans carrying guns? It’s literally our constitutional right to do so!

Although I would not personally open carry, I believe it infringes on our second Amendment right to not allow people to do so. I conceal carry, and I will continue to, regardless of a sign declaring an area to be a “gun free zone.” I refuse to be a victim.
