Moms Demand Action (MDA), not to be confused with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (also MDA), has been pressuring national chains to ban firearms from their establishments. The busybody faux grassroots anti-gun group has been claiming (falsely) victories across the country with restaurants like Chipotle and Starbucks, but their latest target isn’t even pretending to care what a handful of uppity moms think. National grocery store chain Kroger has essentially told MDA to mind their own business and to get a life.

MDA, a fully owned and financed arm of billionaire douchebag Michael Bloomberg’s gun hating organization Everytown For Gun Safety, recently put the screws to Kroger trying to get the company to ban both open and concealed carry in all of its stores. The angry moms say they are going after the grocery store chain because they say there have been 12 shootings on Kroger’s property over the past 4 years.

Bear in mind that Kroger has 2500 stores nationwide and most, if not all, are in shopping centers. Does a shooting in a shopping center parking lot mean there was a shooting at a Kroger’s? Definitely not. And how many of these shootings were perpetrated by an otherwise law abiding citizen open or concealed carrying? My guess is none.

MDA founder Shannon Watts isn’t all that concerned about facts, she just wants to pretend like she’s making the world safer by banning good guys with guns from all public spaces. She sent a letter to Kroger CEO Michael Ellis demanding that he immediately ban all guns from every single location, saying in part:

In most states, gun laws are exceedingly lax, especially when it comes to the open carry of firearms. In many states, virtually anyone can openly carry a loaded gun without going through any licensing, permitting or training.

Now here’s the awesome part: The Huffington Post contacted Kroger spokesman Keith Dailey who said they have no plans to bend to MDA’s anti-gun hysteria:

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

Suck on that, angry moms. I think that it is beautiful that this national chain refuses to get baited into MDA’s little do-nothing game. I also love how Dailey says he trusts the customers to act responsibly. So after a string of claimed victories, Shannon and the mom’s finally get put in their place.
