Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is celebrating Mother’s Day by recommending supermarkets that prohibit open carry. Well, in the case of Target, stores that “respectfully request no open carry.” A chain that joins HEB in welcoming concealed carriers.
And while we’re at it, by not focusing on stores that prohibit guns full stop, the Tweet kinda implies that the Moms are OK with guns as long as they can’t see them.
Which would be really stupid. After all, criminals practice concealed carry — right until they don’t — regardless of store policies. They’ve done so at Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Sprouts, Fiesta, Costco, Food Lion, The Fresh Market and Safeway.
In fact, Google says New Seasons Market is the only chain on the list that hasn’t been hit by armed robbers. Yet.
Meanwhile, “brunch?” Check your privilege Moms! We’ll check our guns.
