I mentioned a few weeks ago that Kroger was — for the moment — standing firm in following state laws about whether shoppers could open or conceal carry in their stores. Let’s see how they stand up to this:

Moms Demand Action is launching its first ad campaign against a corporate gun policy.

The group, a campaign of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety, is running print and digital “homepage takeover” ads in half-a-dozen newspapers criticizing the gun policy at grocery retail chain the Kroger Co. The chain defers to state and local laws for its policy on whether customers may carry guns in its stores.

The six-figure Moms Demand Action campaign will feature print and digital ads in USA Today, the Cincinnati Enquirer, Columbus Dispatch, Detroit Free Press, Detroit News and Houston Chronicle. Print-only ads will run in the Tennessean.

I’m not sure how effective those ads will be. Tennessee? Texas? People enjoy their gun rights in states like that. Detroit? The police chief there is URGING residents to arm themselves!
