Moms Demand Action Kicked Off Staples Property While Trying to Deliver Anti-Gun Petition
Moms Demand Action is apparently trying to change corporate policy on gun carry at every retailer in the US, one company at a time. The group already got Starbucks to take a slight anti-carry stance in their corporate policy.
In recent months they have been focusing their efforts on Staples stores. This week, the Moms tried to deliver a petition to Staples headquarters asking the office supply chain to prohibit legal concealed carry at their stores. They were shown the door and asked to vacate company property.
According to Patch.com,
Members of the Massachusetts chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America tried deliver a petition with more than 12,000 signatures at Staples headquarters in Framingham on Tuesday morning to Staples’ CEO but were asked to leave the property.
The organization did deliver the signatures to Staples security.
The signatures ask the retailer, headquartered in Framingham, to stop allowing guns in their stores, nationwide.
It should be noted that nearly every major retailer in the country has a policy of abiding by local laws and allowing legal concealed carry in their stores.
The Moms were also ran off at a Staples retail location earlier this year when the manager revealed that she herself was a concealed carrier.
