The Moms Don’t Understand Destruction of Property…

This week the Misguided Moms pointed their crosshairs at Kroger in an attempt to get them to “ban” the carrying of firearms in their stores like Starbucks, Chipotle, and Target.

Kroger Spokesman Keith Dailey responded to the Moms request with the following statement:

“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,” Dailey said. “We know that our customers are passionate on both sides of this issue and we trust them to be responsible in our stores.”

Business. As. Usual.

A bunch of Moms then responded on social media with all sorts of responses, with one in particular jumping out at me:


When this is done on purpose, its called destruction of property. (Here’s the NC definition, its pretty straight forward.)
So yeah, the anti-gun folks are now proposing that crimes be committed against retailers for allowing customers to decide whether or not they want to carry in their stores.

Its funny, whenever a retailer or restaurant decides to post “No Guns” signage, I have never once seen folks on the pro-gun side propose violence, property damage, or anything of the sort towards those businesses. Maybe a phone call or a letter to explaining why they won’t be back, but that’s it.

  1. Starbucks, Chipotle, and Target have not banned anything from there stores. The requested not banned. Big difference.

  2. Just once I’d like to see an official response from a retailer as follows: “We know that the presence of armed customers deters crime and makes our stores safer places to shop.”

  3. The idea of thief in the manner proposed is bad, very bad. Now, it is not the first time that Shannon Watts has proposed that her members break laws and endanger police and civilians. She had on her FB page for quite a lone time telling everyone of her followers that they should call 911 and claim to be “in danger” anytime they noticed a person with a gun. It seems that such a call in a Ohio Walmart started a chain of events where two people died recently.
    Now, with this latest direction, how close to being a hate group as defined by the FBI is MDA?


  4. My wife sometimes goes to the Kroger grocery store after dark. And she worries that she might be accosted in the parking lot going to and from her car. In fact in her lifetime she actually has been accosted in parking lots, so it can certainly happen. I can tell you that I have contacted Kroger to support their policy of allowing (per state law) our firearms rights in their stores. I do not wish to find my wife is dead or maimed at any point in her life because she did not have the means to defend herself. And that anyone is willing to break the law to make sure she is unsafe is unacceptable to me. I have seen a lot of this williness to do such in the past few years.

  5. I might also add that my wife was in Kroger one time and was accosted IN the store by a deranged man. She went to the desk and told someone and they chased him down and put him out of the store. At this point while she was in line checking out he stood outside the window of the store and angrily pointed his finger at her as if to say he was going to shoot HER later. Of course, by the time she left he was no longer there, but it was really scary. And I’m sure that Kroger baggers are not allowed to do anything more than walk you to your car. I would like to ask anyone that is supportive of their right to be armed to protect themselves to contact Kroger and congratulate and support their decision on this matter. If the only voices that are heard are from the anti-gun crowd then gues what? My point is that being attacked at the grocery store can and DOES happen.
