About our campaign
Skateboarding isn’t welcome in Kroger stores. Neither is shopping while not wearing a shirt. And you’re not welcome to carry in outside food or drink. But you are perfectly welcome to shop in a Kroger-owned store carrying a loaded semi-automatic rifle. Kroger, the largest grocery chain in the country, has policies that allow customers to openly carry guns in its stores — where moms and their kids shop every day.
Numerous shootings and gun rallies have taken place at Kroger brand stores in recent years. The company policies that have enabled this to happen are not in line with its core values, which include creating a “safe and secure workplace and shopping environment.”
Most states have weak gun laws that let people openly carry guns even if they haven’t had a background check or training. Private businesses like Kroger have the responsibility to protect their customers when the law won’t.
Target, Chipotle, Starbucks, and other businesses have already responded to petitions from moms and supporters urging them to adopt common-sense gun policies in their stores. Now, we are calling on Kroger to do the same and protect families who shop in its stores.
Sign the petition telling Kroger to prohibit open carry.
