Grocers like H-E-B, Whole Foods, Sprouts and Randall’s have already submitted to Obama’s open-carry law, set to go into affect tomorrow, by displaying signs telling customers that they, “may not enter this property with a handgun that is carried openly.”
The national grocery store chain Kroger, however, has no intention of submitting to this ridiculous Obama agenda.
Kroger CFO Michael Schlotman revealed back in March that his stores will abide by “local laws,” whatever they may be.
“If the local gun laws are to allow open carry, we’ll certainly allow customers to do that based on what the local laws are,” Schlotman said appearing on CNBC’s Squawk Box. “We don’t believe it’s up to us to legislate what the local gun control laws should be. It’s up to the local legislators to decide to do that.”
“So we follow local laws [and] we ask our customers to be respectful to the other people they are shopping with,” he added, according to Infowars. “And we really haven’t had any issues inside of our stores as a result of that.”
Kroger’s pro-gun stance has made them the targets of groups like the Michael Bloomberg-affiliated Moms Demand Action. Instead of submitting to angry liberals, however, Kroger released a statement saying they trust their customers to carry their guns responsibly and do the right thing.
“The safety of our customers and associates is one of our most important company values. Millions of customers are present in our busy grocery stores every day and we don’t want to put our associates in a position of having to confront a customer who is legally carrying a gun. That is why 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.”
We applaud Kroger for continuing to take a stand for the Second Amendment! SHARE if you support them!
