For months, the liberal group “Moms demand action” has stalked, bullied and harassed The Kroger Company, demanding that they take away American citizens constitutional rights by trying to force them to prohibit the open carry of firearms in its stores, just as brands including Target, Starbucks, and Panera have done.
The liberal mob refuses to leave law abiding companies and citizens alone.
Instead of meeting with us and reconsidering an irresponsible policy, Kroger’s leadership has refused to listen. They have pressured radio stations to reject our ads and relocated their annual investor meeting to avoid interacting with customers. Just imagine how much easier it would have been if they would talk with us. The liberal group stated.
Even as the liberal anti-gun group continues to harass and bully Kroger in attempts to ban guns at all of its stores nationwide, Kroger still stands strong and has cited the constitution to justify their refusal to take away the rights of their customers.
“Kroger employees shouldn’t have to determine whether the person holding a gun in the frozen aisle is someone dangerous or someone making a political statement,” said liberal spokesperson Erika Soto Lamb.
This high-pressure tactic has been effective when used against other businesses, including casual dining chain Chipotle, which was the site of similar demonstrations earlier this year.
Nevertheless, the Huffington Post reports that Kroger shows no signs of giving into the group’s demand.
Corporate spokesperson Keith Dailey explained that the company develops its policy based on the provisions of the gun ordinances governing individual stores.
He noted that Kroger has no plans to amend that process.
