    She is a total idiot.

    She believes that if Kroger had banned guns in its stores, the bad guy would have saw the sign and said, "Oh darn, I really wanted to shoot up Kroger's today but can't do it because of this sign."

    Sad that there are so many stupid people in this world.

    That's my policy too.

    We carry in our local Kroger. I OC where permitted by law, as it is more physically comfortable for me. We have had employees and a manager tell us they feel better when we're around. They are not allowed firearms while at work and must leave them in their cars. Our Kroger is in the bad part of town. Walking around in that parking lot, especially after dark, is definitely a time you want to be alert and armed.

    I was escorted out of a Food Lion once in Charlotte, by 2 cops, for packing a .45 on my hip. I walked right across the parking lot to a Kroger, and asked to see the manager, and I asked him if the .45 bothered him. He said no, because he had a gun too, or something to that effect. I never went back to Food Lion again, and that was in 1988 or so.

    It did not answer any larger questions, but it sure set me straight on Food Lion. I even wrote the owner, and he sent me a snotty reply.

    Watson and her mother, Charlotte Stallard, filed a civil lawsuit against Kroger last week asking the chain to ban guns in its stores. "Who would have known that Kroger would allow people to just walk in, carry their guns on their waistband and just pull them out?" she said.
    The persons that wrote that are a fool, and kroger has to stand up them.

    Our Kroger's have no problem with open or concealed carry if the did they would lose half their business!

    It's a common sight and nobody seems to care.

    I went to the Kroger's pharmacy about 5 minutes after a armed robbery for narcotics. The guy pointed his gun at several customers and eventually was in a gunfight with LEO a few minutes later.

    I hope they stay strong!

    I doubt very seriously this will go anywhere. I’ve always OC’d at my local Kroger, and every other business in town, for years. Just like when I wear my MAGA hat and get compliments on it, I usually will get a high five or firearm comment for my gun.

    People have lost their damn minds over guns. Notice how little coverage the guy who was CCing and led a lot of kids to safety in El Paso; almost none. And you cannot force a company to enforce a policy for your own benefits. If something like that happens in Georgia you can look for Publix and WalMart superstores businesses to skyrocket! Hell, even our lil ole silver haired ladies carry some form of revolver in their purses.

    You know, all of these folks making noise, are a very, very small percentage of the population. That includes all of these different groups. They do have the media to carry their voice.
    What's funny is, if they ever got their "true" democracy, they'd be on the losing end every time.

    They cannot be ignored no matter the small percentage of population. It only took one lady to get prayer and God taken out of schools.

    you're absolutely right that they cannot be ignored. But on the same token, they can also be held accountable for their actions.
    Let's say these idiots do get Krogers to change their policy and another shooting happens inside. well, start looking at who's to blame. Kroger? Yea, they have deep pockets and provided no security but also these anti-gunners hold direct culpability for forcing the issue. Their actions resulted in a shooting inside Krogers. Even if they win, the money they will have to spend to defend themselves will bankrupt them. Look at the outcome of the Luby's shooting in 1991.

    And in Kentucky, since signs do not have the force of law, you are not going to get in to too much trouble if you by chance get caught.

    Kroger has stores in states with Force of Law signs.

    If they make a blanket policy prohibiting carry of firearms in their stores and you are in one of those states, you can get in to much more trouble.

    You could go lose your right to conceal carry and, in some states, even go to jail.
