The only individuals exempt from this open carry ban are authorized law enforcement.
The recent wave of mass shootings in America has spurred corporate giants like Walmart and Kroger to take action.
Both of these companies are urging the government to strengthen the current background check system.
Jessica Adelman, group vice president of corporate affairs, said in an emailed statement, “Kroger is respectfully asking that customers no longer openly carry firearms into our stores, other than authorized law enforcement officers.” She added, “We are also joining those encouraging our elected leaders to pass laws that will strengthen background checks and remove weapons from those who have been found to pose a risk for violence.”
“A year ago, Kroger made the conscious decision to completely exit the firearm and ammunition business when we stopped selling them in our Fred Meyer stores in the Pacific Northwest,” Adelman continued. “Kroger has demonstrated with our actions that we recognize the growing chorus of Americans who are no longer comfortable with the status quo and who are advocating for concrete and common sense gun reforms.”
Following the Parkland massacre in 2018, Kroger announced that its Fred Meyer stores would stop the sales of firearms to buyers under 21.
Kroger’s latest decision is part of an ongoing trend in Corporate America to adopt leftist virtue signaling tactics and use different forms of soft power against right-wing individuals and organizations. All of this is part of a bigger plan to ensure that the left dominates every aspect of political culture.

Bill Gates Believes Everything Won’t be Normal Until there is Widespread Vaccination in America
However, there’s a catch.
Things will not go back to “normal” until the population is “widely vaccinated.”
During an interview with CBS This Morning, that went out on April 2, Gates predicted that people’s concerns about large public gatherings would be alleviated “once we have the vaccination.” This could potentially take 18 months to come about.
“Our foundation works a lot on diagnostics and vaccines,” Gates stated. Vaccine producers are the ones “that can really get things back on track where we’re not worried about large public gatherings.”
In Gates’ view, “there’s a lot of dialog between our foundation experts and the government,” about opening up life to normal activities after the pandemic is under control.
“Which activities, like schools, have such benefit and can be done in a way that the risk of transmission is very low? And which activities, like mass gatherings, may be – in a certain sense – more optional? And so until you’re widely vaccinated, those may not come back at all.”
The Microsoft founder floated 18 months as a possible timeline for a reversion to normalcy.
Gates is a well-known proponent of abortion and population control. He has talked about using vaccines in the past as a means of controlling world’s population.
“Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we lower that [the population] by perhaps 10 or 15 percent,” he said at a 2010 TED conference.
Some parents are obviously concerned about the implications for parental rights, health, or religious freedoms if a vaccine is introduced.
During the CBS interview, Gates claimed that there are currently “seven or more” potential vaccines that could fight the Wuhan Virus pandemic. In order to guarantee that there are billions of doses of the vaccine available right out of the gate, Gates put forward the idea of building factories that would mass produce each of these vaccines as testing is being conducted concurrently.
Gates admitted that “only probably two of the vaccines will be the ones we go ahead with,” conceding that there exist major risks involved in seeing this plan through.
Gates also commented that a national strategy to the Wuhan Virus pandemic is needed, alluding to what he wrote about in a Washington Post op-ed on April 1.
“Because people can travel freely across state lines, so can the virus. The country’s leaders need to be clear: Shutdown anywhere means shutdown everywhere. Until the case numbers start to go down across America – which could take 10 weeks or more – no one can continue business as usual or relax the shutdown,” Gates commented.
In the CBS This Morning interview, Gates stressed the importance of acting quickly after the Wuhan Virus outbreak.
“We understand what needs to be done here. It’s going to be very painful. But taking the pain early means there’s a lot less pain both medically and economically than if we dilly-dally and wait until every town has big numbers before we react.”
Gates said that the Wuhan Virus pandemic will cost trillions of dollars, on top of hundreds of thousands of lives globally when it’s all said and done. “For the next one, we will be far more ready than we were for this one,” he predicted.
As many Americans seek to protect their liberties in a time of uncertainty — as evidenced by the number of people rushing to buy firearms and ammo — globalist oligarchs like Gates are concocting plots to advance crony capitalist projects that will infringe on the rights of millions of Americans.
Gates may have been a great entrepreneur, his politics, on the other hand, are straight out of the globalist playbook.
