1. I found this interesting:

It adds a dimension maybe - from September of 2014

King Soopers, Kroger Stores Targeted for Gun Policies by Moms Group

In May, we told you about Chipotle stores announcing a no-guns policy after being targeted by a petition from Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. The organization has had similar success with a number of other national chains. But Kroger, the parent company of King Soopers and City Market stores in Colorado, is resisting a petition about its policy -- a decision that's garnering more attention, as witnessed by a lengthy feature this morning on NPR...
Included below are a number of photos and posts related to this last statement. But here's one example: As the Moms Demand Action release notes, Chipotle, as well as Target, Sonic, Chili's and Jack in the Box, issued gun bans in the wake of petitions from the group. But Kroger hasn't blinked thus far. The company isn't talking at this point, but reps previously issued a statement that reads in part: "We don't want to put our associates in a position of having to confront a customer who is legally carrying a gun. That is why our long-standing policy on this issue is to follow state and local laws and to ask customers to be respectful of others while shopping." Open Carry Texas, whose members have posed for photos with weapons at a number of businesses subsequently targeted by Moms Demand Action, is ridiculing the petition via memes like this one, which references the support of former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg: Meanwhile, the Moms Demand Action effort is gaining more attention from the media, including NPR. We've included that piece here.


Will they say they are being targeted by the gun industry?

2. By Republican logic, the best way to conquer border violence is to flood the area with guns.

They equate gun ownership with lower crime.

Unless the guns are owned by "those people", of course.
