I agree, and I will send them another letter thanking them to stand behind their decision. A simple out for any company is to say they will follow the laws in that area. End of discussion. We as people who appreciate this policy need not abuse it by walking around flaunting the policy with a group of people open carrying long guns to try and make a point.At least Kroger has stood up to these idiots
You are so right! I guess according to her, law enforcement can't shop in those stores either because "seeing a gun" scares people? Those people really need to be educated about firearms first hand and not rely on news reports for it.Ignorance can often result in fear. This poor, deluded lady doesn't know what she is talking about and unfortunately there are many like her.
Like with Starbucks, we were our own worst enemy.Kroger intends to remain above partisan politics. They will see to it that their stores abide by the local laws they are subject to. This from Lucia, their President in Atalanta. Now, something stupid COULD change that. If a group decides to start carrying their ARs into stores, and invites publicity while doing so, expect that Kroger will respond to that and begin restricting carry in all of it's locations. They don't want to get involved in this issue. They want to sell groceries. Period.
Trying to drag them into such a, to them, non-issue, is akin to the old "cutting off your nose to spite your face."
I have to admit that my alert level would skyrocket if I saw you walking around Kroger with a golf club.I'm dangerous with a golf club. Only God knows the direction the ball will go or how far. I don't play golf or go to practice ranges to protect those I may hit with a ball. With her logic I should go and because I do not play demand everyone else stop because I'm there. DUH or even better just not allow anyone to have a golf club.
