The largest grocery store chain in America has seen their profits skyrocket after standing up to bullying anti-gun group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. In mid-August, the organization launched a campaign to pressure Kroger into changing their policy which allows law-abiding citizens to carry firearms in their stores.
According to Breitbart, Moms Demand Action started their attacks on August 18, when Kroger subsidiary grocer Fred Meyer refused to change their policy allowing firearms. Less than two weeks later, Kroger had the same response. This prompted Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action, to call out the grocery store for banning skateboards but not guns.
In late October, a Kentucky chapter of Moms Demand Action attempted to shame Kroger shareholders into supporting a gun ban, which failed miserably. The group then targeted Kroger subsidiary Harris Teeter, which also refused to change their policy on guns.
Kroger consistantly refused to back down, and in the third quarter, they saw a 21% increase in profits over the same period last year. The quarter ended November 8, with earnings of $362 million. Apparently, the public doesn’t want Kroger to change their policy on guns, as Watts tried to argue, and has supported them vigorously for standing up to one of the left’s most notorious gun-grabbers.
The Democrats may want to take Kroger’s lead and start supporting the Second Amendment. A 21% increase in support would be welcome to either political party, but it would be particularly helpful to those who received such an embarrassing shellacking in the midterm elections. However, due to the fact that the left continually proves they have no regard for facts or proven results, I won’t hold my breath waiting for them to learn from this grocery store’s example.
