Harris Teeter Says to Moms Demand Action: We Will Not Change Our Gun Policy

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense, another uber liberal Progressive group, is going around demanding retailers strip Americans of their Constitutional right to bear arms. Founded after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, this group has made it their mission to go to outlets such as Kroger and Harris Teeter, demanding that their customers not be armed when shopping there. Both retailers have told them in no uncertain terms to get stuffed. It is an issue better left to the states and the Constitution, thank you very much.

From Breitbart:

On November 20, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America delivered a petition to the Harris Teeter grocers asking them to bar law-abiding citizens from carrying guns in their stores. Harris Teeter responded by saying they have no plans to change their policy, which allows the carrying of guns in states and municipalities where doing so is legal.

According to The Charlotte Observer, North Carolina-based Harris Teeter issued a statement expressing its position: “We have and will continue to adhere to the firearms and concealed handgun laws as outlined by states in which we do business. We believe this issue is best handled by lawmakers, not retailers.”

Breitbart News previously reported that Moms Demand was rebuffed by Kroger in August, after they pressured that grocery chain to bar law-abiding citizens from carrying guns in its stores. Kroger told Moms Demand they abide by state and local laws and trust their customers “to be responsible” to carry guns where allowed.

Just another leftist group that bullies others to get their way. News flash… if people had had guns at Sandy Hook, the mass murderer could have been stopped before he slaughtered so many. But no, you want to make a target rich environment helpless to defend themselves. When guns are carried, crime goes down, not the other way around. What a bunch of bored, busybodies who have mush for brains. The fact that those such as Jay Leno cave to such nonsense is beyond me. Good for Kroger and Harris Teeter. At least not everyone who owns a business out there has forgotten what our freedoms are based upon and our Constitutional rights. You can bet I’ll shop at both stores.
