Pushing Back

It would appear that the gun-control zealots at Moms Demand Action have decided that a grocery chain wishing to stay neutral in the guns/no guns debate isn’t good enough.  In response to Kroger restating their position of following local laws when it comes to the lawful carry of firearms, both open and concealed, MDA has called for a boycott of Kroger and their associated stores until that policy is changed.

In response to this, I am going to do something, and I ask that you all join me.

For the next month, from April 16, 2015 to May 16, 2015, please do as much shopping as you can at Kroger and her related stores.  Buy groceries, home supplies, gasoline, alcohol, and whatever else you would normally buy for your home and family at Kroger, Fry’s, Harris Teeter, Fred Meyers, or whichever of their stores is local to you.  Keep your receipts.

On May 15, I will be sending all of my receipts, along with a courteous, professional letter, to the Kroger customer relations department, thanking them for staying out of the debate and treating their customers, both pro-carry and anti, like adults.  Please join me in doing this.  Let Kroger see how many lawful, reasonable, gun owning customers they have, and how much money we spend in a month with them.  Let them be able to point to this as a reason why their stance of wanting to sell groceries and not ideology is reasonable and the right thing to do.

For those of you in states that do not have a Kroger presence, please send a letter to Kroger on May 16 saying the same thing, and asking them to expand into your market.

Kroger is doing the right thing by staying out of the argument.  We need to thank them for that and show that there are more of us than there are in the anti-rights groups.  I’ll be posting my letter next month.  I hope you all will join me.

    I’ll back your play even though I have to drive a bit to get to a Kroger. Some things are worth the effort.


  6. Thanks, guys. Please spread the word. The more people who do this, the more effective it will be.


  7. I’m in. I shop at Kroger’s anyway; all I need to do is save the receipts.

    We don’t have Kroger’s or any affiliated stores here. I’ll try to remember to send a letter anyway.
