    Kroger staying the course in regards to Open Carry!

    http://www.unitedliberty.org/article...control-groups

    We should send out a kind of thank you letter.
    But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

    Why not?
    My reasons to OC
    1. to raise awareness of the legality of open carry in Michigan
    2. To raise awareness that good people carry guns
    3. A deterrent to people so that I won't be targeted
    4. Because it's more comfortable than CC in most situations
    5. Because I can and want to
    6. Because it's perfectly legal
    7. Self defense

    That hasn't been true for me, anywhere, in the past 5 years. This would warrant no exception. But to each their own.

    Time and place my friend, tact is a big part of OC.

    I'm cracking up right now because on Wednesday, I visited two Krogers stores and spoke with the management. I gave them the heads up like I said. A few minutes ago, I'm on Facebook, and I see on the Every town For Gun Safety page, a guy in an NRA hat, holding a baby, and an AR 15. You should see the comments, they actually believe he is one of us.

    Those managers are going to be in a meeting shortly, and doubtless, this open carry thing is going to come up. These managers are going to be able to say that some gun guy came in and predicted that this would happen. Credibility is king.

    I am coming to the conclusion that many of these sightings are STAGED for the benefit of Bloombergs minions. We tell the truth, they lie & use propaganda! Guess who gets all the medias attention? Hint...not us.

    THAT is why it's so important to OC and OC everywhere you can - the heck with "tact"; just another word for "reasonable" or "common sense" or..... whatever, you get the point.

    The more that people see OCers, the more that they will see that the media is lying to them!

    I've been trying to tell people this, and they look at me like I should be wearing a tinfoil hat. Same thing happens when I try to tell people that there is something wrong when the people are trained to trust the police, while the police are trained not to trust the person. Some people even get angry with me, others ostracize and even others try to take vengeance on me in some form or another when I say such things.

    I think we need to be more effective at communicating with the big wigs. We have done marvelously on the streets with the everyday joe, while the enemies of gun rights have been hammering the places people shopped.

    I ran into a guy this weekend who said it was a friend of his who had his picture taken with a longarm in a Kroger while holding a baby.

    You can imagine what I told him he ought to tell his friend.

    I've been thinking the same thing. Who are these guys? How can you be aware enough of things to be OCing an AR into Kroger, and yet not be aware enough to recall how that backfired miserably with Starbucks et al? The gun community at large seems to have come down pretty hard on long gun OC in public outside of places like Texas, etc. I never hear anybody advocating this, or talking about doing similar things.

    And yet we see these convenient photos all the time. And that NRA hat – it's too pat. The NRA isn't even a particularly pro-OC organization; what long gun OCer reps the NRA that hard?

    The antis have made it explicit that their strategy (having failed in the legislatures) going forward is to have carry banned by as many businesses as possible. Given the immense fortunes subsidizing the gun control advocacy apparatus, is there any reason to expect they wouldn't pay dudes to do this sort of thing? Their strategy won't get off the ground if someone doesn't give them a photo-op.

    I think "tact" is irrelevant in the case of sidearm OC within the law, especially since Kroger is now openly in support of local law. A lot of us open carry everywhere, all day, every day - as common as putting on a belt in the morning. OC is not a "screw you" for everyone is what I mean. It's a way of life in pursuit of happiness. I OC at Kroger probably three times a week, usually with my 19 month old. Never had a problem and now there's no question.

    Mi hermano, the correct time is now, and the place is everywhere!

    I thanked the management at my Krogers for respecting my rights. We had a nice chat about the situation, I shared how I dont feel these people are gun rights activists, but are likely taking the rifles to a buyback program to get two political points in at once. One at the Krogers, the other, at a buyback somewhere.

    She told me that something was "Coming down" in regards to this issue. ie, from the corporate management, I'll let you know if I find out something.

    THANK YOU.

    Please pass the word and the contact information on to others. If Kroger doesn't hear from enough gun owners now they may give in like other places have.

    It is crucial that they hear from us NOW - because later it won't matter.
