Group Wants Kroger To Ban Open Carry In Stores

The group, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, is trying to push the Kroger grocery chain to ban its customers from the open carry of guns.

The group was founded online by a Zionsville mother who was disturbed by the Newtown, Connecticut shootings.

They claim that it unnerves shoppers when some customers openly carry a gun.

They don’t say anything about those who carry concealed and say that they aren’t anti-gun.

Kroger says that they aren’t taking sides and as long as everyone is abiding by state and local laws they don’t have a problem and just ask shoppers be responsible and considerate of others.

The Indiana Grocery and Convenience Store Association is supporting Kroger’s stance.

They also point out that taking sides could cost customers and money.

It would also mean that the stores would have to pay for signage and other measures to enforce the policy.
