    Moms demand no OC at Fred Meyer; Wrong targets!

    Maybe moms are demanding wrong kind of action from wrong people


    The Portland Oregonian reported late yesterday that the anti-gun Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America dumped a petition with more than 18,000 signatures at Fred Meyer headquarters in Portland, asking the chain to prevent customers from openly carrying firearms in its stores.

    That's why I posted A. Wang's e-mail address. "They're just the latest iteration of Astro-Turf and not grassroots."

    Fred Meyer in many of their stores are a FFL dealer.

    In other words, Fred Meyer sells guns!!!!!

    So, Kroger is in the business of selling guns because there is money to be made.

    Up here in AK, all of the Fred Meyer's sell guns. In fact they had some pretty good Black Friday deals. AND (I know this will tick the mental midgets at Nanny Bloomer's HQ off) I was just in there this past Tuesday and there was a line at the gun counter. Like 6-8 people in line. Asked what's up, did they get .22lr or something? No, but Tuesday is seniors day at FM, 10% off everything including guns and ammo AND they had a special deal on guns for their "Friends and family" where employees and their family members got an additional 15% (I think he said) off on top. So the line will all older ladies and gentlemen buying guns! LOL! I OC in the FM up here all the time.

    Every time the dimwits at Moms Demand Action attempt to get a store to infringe on the people's right to keep and bear arms, the people rise up against them, about 7 to 1 AGAINST.

    Current score is 7.433 to 1 AGAINST the dimwits at Moms Demand Action.

    Check out the latest round of blithering idiocy from one of the group's members: ""If I owned a business, I would want to protect my employees by making it clear that you can't openly carry" guns in the store, Davis said."

    Davis hasn't the slightest clue as to why respecting the right to keep and bear arms is the best way to protect ones employees.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.
