In the aftermath of Walmart and Kroger announcing their plans to stop customers from open carrying in their stories, retail giants Walgreens, CVS and Wegmans have jumped on board with the corporate take-down of the 2nd Amendment and announced similar policies.
“We are joining other retailers in asking our customers to no longer openly carry firearms into our stores other than authorized law enforcement officials,” Walgreens announced in an emailed statement.
“We join a growing chorus of businesses in requesting that our customers, other than authorized law enforcement personnel, do not bring firearms into our stores,” CVS announced.
Wegmans was more squishy in their proclamation in favor of gun control inside their stores, refusing to outright ban open carry while imploring their customers not to do so.
“There’s nothing more important than the safety of our customers & employees. The sight of someone with a gun can be alarming, and we don’t want anyone to feel that way at Wegmans. For this reason, we prefer that customers not openly carry firearms into our stores,” Wegmans announced in a post on Twitter.
These corporations at war with gun rights have provided ammo to Moms Demand Action, the astroturfed gun control group that is funded by leftist mega-billionaire Michael Bloomberg.
“We hope Senate leaders are watching this sea change” Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts said in response to the open carry bans.
“We’ll take this momentum to Washington when Congress is back from recess on Monday,” she added.
Walmart and Kroger got the ball rolling on this movement against the Bill of Rights, as multinational corporations lead the way toward the destruction of the U.S. Constitution after two mass shootings last month restarted the media-driven hysteria against gun ownership.
“In the national conversation around gun safety, we’re encouraged that broad support is emerging to strengthen background checks and to remove weapons from those who have been determined to pose an imminent danger,” Walmart’s CEO Doug McMillon said last month after the mass shooting in El Paso, TX.
“The reauthorization of the assault weapons ban should be debated to determine its effectiveness in keeping weapons made for war out of the hands of mass murderers,” he added.
Gun rights are under attack like never before, with even the Trump administration strongly considering “red flag” gun confiscation laws at the federal level, as gun grabbers seem to have gained a tremendous amount of steam in recent weeks.
New Group of Turncoat Gun Owners is Being Launched to Push for Civilian Disarmament
Giffords, an anti-Second Amendment organization created by former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, is launching a new group of gun owners to challenge pro-gun groups across the nation.
Building off a coalition that was set up in 2018, Gun Owners for Safety was recently unveiled and has chapters present in Colorado, Minnesota and Texas. It will serve as a counterbalance against pro-gun organizations and will push for gun control measures nationwide.
“I think whether you’re talking about politics, whether you’re talking about lobbying, whether you’re talking about culture change, what’s vitally important is that we focus on the millions of Americans at the center of our politics. If we’re going to have long-term durable change in this country, it can’t just be the activists on the left and the activists on the right. We really have to move the center,” Giffords Executive Director Peter Ambler declared.
Giffords is the wife of Arizona Senate candidate Mark Kelly. She is also a gun owner and according to Ambler, Giffords was one of the most moderate members during her time serving in the U.S. House.
Ambler claims that the group’s organizers have already reached out to approximately 50,000 gun owners all across the nation “who are fed up with the NRA,” Ambler stated. According to a report by The Hill, the group’s members “include hunters, collectors, veterans, former law enforcement and others who value firearm ownership but also want to reduce gun violence.”
“These men and women were eager, at a time when our values of our country are being debated, to raise their hand and show politicians, show the country, that the vast majority of gun owners support safer gun laws,” Ambler remarked. The Executive Director of Giffords said that universal background checks are a central policy item for the group.
The NRA has become a punching bag of sorts for many gun control groups. Despite some of its questionable dedication to certain gun rights causes, the kind of persecution the NRA is facing from the state of New York for allegedly mismanaging funds and being involved in other forms of corruption.
“Put your foot in the shoes of an American gun owner, do you want to be part of the NRA, which is embroiled in legal and ethical controversy?” Ambler inquired. “The NRA wants you to believe that you can’t have your Second Amendment and pursue laws like … universal background checks.”
“American voters are hungry for campaigns and messages and groups of people who are attempting to bring people together to accomplish something that serves all Americans. That’s why Gabby is working so hard to organize fellow gun owners across the country,” Ambler commented.
The pro-gun control movement is not playing around. They will use every strategy in the book to try to destroy the Second Amendment. Gun owners should prepare themselves for the most unorthodox of attacks that come from this desperate anti-freedom lobby.
