Kroger: We Reject Moms Demand Action’s Push To Disarm Our Customers

Anti 2nd Amendment organization “Moms Demand Action” has been on a crusade against stores who allow customers to carry firearms (where open carry is legal in that state), and since last August they’ve been targeting Kroger’s.  CFO Michael Schlotman talked recently[1] about why his company ignored them…


That was a group called Moms Demand Action. They were opposed to the fact that our policy is to adhere to the local gun laws. 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. 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. And we really haven’t had any issues inside of our stores as a result of that.

After Kroger’s rejected their request, MDA moved on to target Harris Teeter.  Harris Teeter quickly said “no, we don’t think so” as well.
