Moms Demand Action now attacking Kroger

Chipotle, Target, Starbucks, Jack and the Box. One tends to wonder who will be their next victim?

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is now targeting Kroger, the largest supermarket retailer, and demands that they rethink their policy to allow open carry of firearms in their stores.

How as a mother, am I supposed to know if the person with a loaded AR-15 is a gun extremist trying to make a political statement or if I should duck and cover? Kroger shouldn’t leave that ambiguous”

-Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action, told The Daily Beast.

Kroger officials have given no statements indicating that they will ban guns in their stores.

Kroger’s policy is to follow state and local laws, and we have requested that all of our customers be respectful of other customers and our associates when shopping in our stores. We recognize the sincerity of beliefs held by people on both sides of the gun issue, which we believe is a public policy best determined by lawmakers.

-Kroger spokeswoman Rachael Betzler said Thursday.

Shannon Watts believes that the store should disregard state and local laws when they aren’t protecting children and families. Honestly, she couldn’t be more wrong. Allowing open carry IS protecting children and families. When a criminal comes into a store armed most people would want a good guy with a gun. Oh wait. Shannon doesn’t think they exist. Just in case you’re in the crazy cab with her, I have provided a few links below just to save time on my rantings.

  1. Man looks for someone to kill randomly at hotel in San Antonio. Armed citizen steps in and saves the day.
  2. Good guy with a gun wins in Chicago.
  3. Armed criminal bets citizen doesn’t have a gun and guessed wrong. (This shows that criminals have NO idea. Ever consider that they’ll think twice knowing that anyone could be carrying?)
  4. Armed South Carolina resident puts a stop to a possible killing spree.
  5. What happened in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas. Sorry Shannon.
  6. School shooter stopped in less than 60 seconds thanks to good guys with guns.
  7. Armed citizen stops robber and holds him at gun point in parking lot until police arrive.

Moms Demand doesn’t talk about these because well, that would make them look uninformed.

Shannon Watts also issued a statement saying that they intend to deliver petitions to other Kroger-owned stores such as Harris Teeter, Fry’s, and others. If these companies don’t enact gun bans, Moms Demand Action threatens to post open carry images on Twitter and attack via social media.

When are these stores going to stop letting some silly organization bully them on the web? I thought that liberals were against cyber bullying? Kroger is not causing any harm by allowing their customers to follow state and local laws.

Armed Citizen Fights Back and Wins: Good Guy with a Gun Strikes Again!

Well, I guess the good guy with a gun is at it again! I wonder what Shannon Watts has to say now..

Police: Robbery suspect loses ‘bet’ that victim doesn’t have a gun

Posted: Jun 20, 2014 8:37 AM EDTUpdated: Jun 20, 2014 12:29 PM EDT

 

A man with a gunshot wound was reported, Friday morning, at an apartment complex called the Pines on Watkins Drive; but he wasn’t shot there.

Jackson police say, shortly before that, a guest at a nearby Motel 6 had a run in with the man in the rear parking lot.

They say the guest was approached by a man asking for cigarettes.

The hotel guest said he didn’t have any cigarettes.

The man began to walk away, turned around and said “betcha’ ain’t got one of these,” pointing a gun at the victim.   

The man did however have “one of these” and fired at the man trying to rob him, striking him in the chest.  

The shooting victim left and was later picked up by ambulance at the Pines apartments.   

At this time the shooter, a contractor from the coast, working in Jackson is not facing any charges.   

The case will be presented to the Hinds County grand jury. 

Name and condition of shooting victim not being released yet. 

Victim of Stabbing Heads To The Range

No one ever wants to be a victim of an attack, especially one so close to home. 

WBNS (CBS Columbus) reported that more women are seeking to arm themselves after a woman was attacked in their community in March. Rikki Whitaker was held at gun point and then stabbed after leaving an LA Fitness Gym in Hilliard, OH. She is now out of the hospital and learning self-defense. 

The article describes the courses that Whitaker has been involved in to receive her CCW permit.

It is an empowering feeling, but I know it’s a last resort. It’s not something you want to use, but at some point it’s something you could need to.”

-Rikki Whitaker

 

Though Whitaker has forgone weeks of training and course work, Ohio law offers law-abiding citizens a different option known as a Temporary Emergency License (TEL), which will allow someone to legally carry a gun before completing the 12 hours of state mandated training and waiting on a sheriff to issue a license, which can take up to 45 days. 

The TEL is only valid for 90 days and cannot be renewed for 4 years. There is a lot of confusion when it comes to what it takes to qualify for a TEL and a lot of gun-control nuts argued that this law would be abused. However, the low numbers are proving that this is just another thing they have wrong about guns.
