After a North Carolina-based grocery caved to Moms Demand Action over the weekend, here is a list of five businesses who have made it a point to reject these radical anti-gun policies.
Although many gun owners may associate Starbucks as a place for liberal hivemind policies, the coffee chain has actually become a haven for gun owners. Not only has Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz ignored Moms Demand Action, but he’s allowed open carry to continue in Starbucks – as long as open carriers stopped holding “Starbucks Appreciation Days”.

Kroger subsidiary might not be a household name for certain parts of the country, but the business has rejected Moms Demand Action, telling CBS-Portland “The safety of our customers and associates is one of our most important values. We don’t want to have to put our associates in a position of having to confront a customer who is legally carrying a gun. That is why our longstanding policy on this issue is to follow state and local laws.”
Speaking of Kroger, Moms Demand Action launched a campaign specifically aimed at targeting Kroger to ban guns in their stores. The Cincinnati Enquirer quoted a statement from Kroger in response, “We know that our customers are passionate on both sides of this issue, and we trust them to be responsible in our stores.”
When Moms Demand Action attempted to hand deliver a gun-ban petition to Staples CEO Ron Sargent, they were ushered off the property by security personnel. How’s that for sending a message?
Arguably the most shocking business on this list, Target interim CEO John Mulligan “respectfully [requested] that guests not bring firearms into Target.” Not even a day later, Target PR amended the CEO’s comment to say that the announcement was a request, not a prohibition – ending Moms Demand Action’s petition with the large retailer.
