These misguided 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.

It's 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.

This.....being on the pro-gun side, we've never threatened bodily harm, destruction of property, etc.  We make a phone call, write a letter and speak to the store manager.  Done........

No I don't think I'm so cool. Are you bothered by my statement? Their signage simply doesn't make a difference to me.

I really feel concerned for anyone who feels the need to wear a weapon.
It's not a good sign.

No, actually, it's called exercising your Constitutional rights under the law.

I think you just like to demonize people you hate for committing the Unpardonable Sin of holding opinions different from yours.

Who said anything like that? Where do you get 'need' out of my statement and please show me where need is a requirement in the second amendment. Thank you.

Although, it seems that CM is like a magnet that attracts unhappy, snarky people who want to put people down to make themselves feel superior.
Obviously, that's what you're here for.



Example #1..., you prove me right again.


And all the other snarky comments you've made in this thread.

If any of those stores were in the center of some of the shittiest neighborhoods in the country, I wouldn't call concealed carry paranoia.
