Lakeland, Florida — Add another major grocer to the list of businesses who are asking customers not to open carry in the wake of the Odessa and Dayton shootings.
Here’s the quote out of Publix headquarters in Lakeland, Florida this morning:
>>> Publix respectfully request that only law enforcement officials openly carry firearms in our stores.
Thank you, Publix <<<
After Walmart took the lead, Kroger, CVS, Walgreens, Wegmans, Aldi and a number of other stores made the announcement banning open carry.
After Publix made the announcement, anti-gun radicals at Moms Demand Action and Everytown took a victory lap praising them for making the move.
Of course anyone with two brain cells to put together knows these no “open carry” policies won’t save any lives, but they are a reminder to gun owners that large corporations for the most part are not friendly to the Second Amendment and are vulnerable to pressure from leftists within their company and left-wing organizations funded by Bloomberg.
Yet another leading grocery store chain has rejected gun extremism and said NO to open carry of firearms in their stores.
