Kroger - 2, Moms Demand Action - 0

posted on April 29, 2015

Without firing a shot, a good guy with a gun (who happened to be a Kroger shopper) stopped seven individuals who were beating an elderly man in a Kroger parking lot in Little Rock, Ark., on April 22.

“Gene” (last name withheld) kept his finger off the trigger and used cover; he refused to respond to the attacker’s taunts and forced them to retreat; and he saved the victim from further harm, or perhaps even death.

The event must vex Shannon Watts of Moms Demand Action, who is currently staging an ineffectual boycott of Kroger in an attempt to force them to ban the carry of firearms in their stores. Kroger stated that they would continue to allow carry in accordance with local law, and their profits rose 21 percent in Q3 2014. 

No word yet from Watts on how the outcome would have been better had Gene been disarmed.
