Gun Control Advocates are as Useless as Gun Control Itself

Eat Safe Shop SafeRemember back in September when we told you about Kroger standing up to Moms Demand Action?  The top brass of the grocery chain refused to be bullied into an anti-gun statement or policy (like Target, Starbucks, Chipotle and others).  Instead, the world’s 5th largest retailer decided to employ actual common sense and allow their patrons to #ShopSafe, saying “Our long-standing policy on this issue is to follow state and local laws and to ask customers to be respectful of others while shopping.  “We know that our customers are passionate on both sides of this issue, and we trust them to be responsible in our stores.”

Despite their claims to be “common sense” advocates, the astroturf anti-gun zealots threw a hissy fit and decided to boycott Kroger.  Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand, said “Moms need to shop for groceries, but we don’t have to shop at stores that put our families in harm’s way. Kroger’s policy endangers our families by putting us in the position of having to guess if the man carrying a rifle through the cereal aisle is a threat to their safety.  

A lot of good that did.

As pointed out by the Iowa Firearms Coalition, Kroger is doing as good or better than ever.  According to Supermarket News, Kroger posted a 21% increase in profit in the third quarter compared with the same period last year while identical store sales excluding fuel were up 5.6%, making this the 44th quarter with positive identical store sales.

Maybe it is time for other retailers to take an honest look at their policies and ask who they are really hurting when they kowtow  to bullies like Moms Demand Action and don’t allow their patrons to #EatSafe or #ShopSafe – especially when the store is unwilling or unable to protect them… Like Target:

    Why in the hell are they allowing those idiots to overrun their store like that? It’s private property, they aren’t there to buy anything and the are disrupting their business.
