Moms Demand Action Asked to Leave Kroger Property in Lansing, Michigan
Moms Demand Action has suffered another setback in their effort to get more corporations to ban guns.
Members of the group were asked to leave a Lansing, Michigan parking lot.
According to local media reports,
Kroger’s stance won’t stop Moms Demand Action’s ongoing protests at Kroger stores, however, said Linda Brundage, who heads the group’s mid-Michigan chapter. Brundage led a group of about 12 women at this morning’s protest.
The group was initially asked to leave the parking lot at 921 W. Holmes St., but was then invited inside to speak with store management.
Kroger reps from their Michigan offices say that changes to Kroger’s current policy, which is to simply follow local laws, are unlikely to occur. From the Lansing State Journal,
Chris Albi, Kroger’s vice president of merchandising for Michigan, said the company’s Cincinnati headquarters was aware of today’s protest, but isn’t expected to change its policy.
“Our policy is consistent with what it’s been all along, that we follow the state’s regulations and we don’t have a specific policy for Kroger at all,” Albi said.
