Fresh Market: Guns And Groceries Don’t Mix

The Fresh Market, a Greensboro, N.C.-based grocery chain, recently issued a statement asking customers not to bring guns into their stores. Company officials said this would “ensure a welcoming environment” where people can “treat one another with kindness and respect while shopping.” 

Kindness and respect? Were those on display when two thugs robbed one of your stores, shot a man and assaulted an employee? Or when two of your employees were pistol-whipped during a robbery? The list goes on and on. 

We’re all for kindness and respect—in fact, most law-abiding gun owners are nothing but kind and respectful. But we’re also in favor of being armed and prepared. So until your policy changes, we’ll let you and the delusional Moms take your chances in your artificial gun-free zones.
