Kroger Execs Move Meeting To Venue Which Doesn’t Allow Open Carry (Images)
Members of Moms Demand Action along with founder Shannon Watts rallied outside of Kroger’s investor relations meeting today and a few interesting things took place. The ladies went armed with their First Amendment rights.
To the Open Carry folks: That’s the amendment right before the Second one.
A fearless patriot and his liberty lovin’ friends also attended to thank Kroger for supporting their “Second Ammendmeent rights.” [sic]
Of course, he was photobombed by an awesome Moms Demand Action member.
[su_center_ad]The Investor Relations Meeting was scheduled to take place at the Marriott in Cincinnati (the location is actually in Kentucky).
The night before the meeting, while it was still dark out, all of the executives/investors appeared with their suitcases in the lobby and started loading onto buses.
The images across the bottom are of the executives on hand to speak to investors. (A group which that includes three guys named Mike).
Moms Demand Action were scheduled to hold a press conference outside of the hotel but moved with them to their new location (Northern Kentucky University).
With this move, the Kroger Executives (we shall call them Mike, Inc) tried and failed to avoid the gun sense group but they did manage to escape to an area that doesn’t allow the open carry of guns.
My source made a quick call and found that the campus forbids open or the concealed carry of firearms unless you’re a law enforcement official.
When the three Kroger “supporters” arrived, they held their misspelled sign. A fourth Open Carry activist arrived with gun in hand but was stopped at his car by a police officer and turned away.
On Tuesday, when the radio ads began, one of the execs heard it then quickly called Clear Channel and they pulled the ads.
The message received stated, “The only way we can run this in any market is if Kroger or any other business is not specifically mentioned. Can you do something more generic? We would still love to run something.”
Kroger, if you’re concerned about your safety, imagine how we feel when we’re trying to shop and spend our delicious dollars in your stores, then run into a gang of white guys marching down the produce aisle.
Put your big girl pants on Kroger. The executives managed to distance themselves from the same armed gangs of men they allow to march in their stores.
Ads pointing out the store’s hypocrisy frightened them so much that it was yanked off the air.
Big thanks to my source. You rock. [su_csky_ad]
