The Anti-Gunners in General, and Michael Bloomberg’s “Moms Demand Action” have lost the war. They can’t get anti-gun bills passed, so they have yet again moved the goal posts to have national corporations make non-binding anti-gun press statements.
Most of these statements can only be found on anti-gun lobby sites, and not even on the corporate sites of the companies.
Still the antis are trying to get the largest grocery chain in the country, Kroger, to make an anti-gun statement. Kroger has made a statement, and it has been for the anti-gunners to go pound sand.
So the anti-gunners have doubled-down, any gun-related bad thing to happen in a Kroger, or near a Kroger gets reported as if it has a whit of relevance to their claims. Yep they want to ask Kroger to politely ask those who lawfully carry to leave their guns at home when shopping a Kroger or their affiliates, or take their business to another store, and until they do every assault, robbery, and mugging will be ALL THEIR FAULT!
(Do note when crap like this happens it is in no fault or relation to gun control laws! Also No Backsies…)
Leaving an Arkansas grocery store Wednesday night, one shopper said he witnessed a disturbing altercation — an elderly man getting beaten up while surrounded by a group of seven people.
“That’s just not good odds,” he told KOLR-TV.
So the 24-year-old Kroger shopper — who gave only a first name, Gene — decided to do something about the scene in the Little Rock parking lot.
He told KOLR he threw down his bags, stepped to the side — and then pulled out his gun and pointed it at the group.
…But the move got the group’s attention. ”They kept yelling this isn’t your fight, you need to walk away, you need to put the gun down,” Gene recalled to KOLR.
By this point, other shoppers had pulled out their cellphones and began documenting the standoff and calling police. ”Some lady behind yells, ‘There’s a man with a gun,’ to 911,” Gene said.
The group and the victim took off before police arrived. Police said they’re all related, and it was a nephew attacking his uncle. The victim, his face bloodied, told police he didn’t want to press charges.
While Gene told KOLR it was the first time he’s drawn his weapon after years of legally carrying one, he would make the same choice if faced with the situation again.
So let’s see we have a Kroger shopper with a gun. He’s had his permit for a while, yet has never drawn down on somebody before. He saw a total stranger in a very bad predicament (Multiple attackers, all likely stronger due to age). He drew his gun and diffused the situation. Meanwhile bystanders called the police.
The man didn’t shoot anybody, or even fire a shot.
The police didn’t confuse the good guy with a gun for a bad guy, and shoot him.
Really it’s just a general feel-good story.
Meanwhile I saw this story on Boston local news…yet none of the anti-gun people I follow have said PEEP about it….I wonder why…
