Nevada Carry, an organization and website dedicated to promoting the right to safe and legal open and concealed carry of firearms in Nevada, would like to publicly support Kroger in its recent decision to trust their customers to carry firearms responsible when shopping. Kroger has ignored the unreasonable demand by a small, but vocal anti-2nd Amendment group backed by wealthy donors and interest groups. It is clear that this interest group does not represent the will of the majority of Americans, and by spending money, seeks to promote the false notion that the longer American tradition of keeping and bearing arms is on the decline. Rather, support by average Americans for their 2nd Amendment rights has never been stronger.
It is deplorable that this group, which has less influence than it does money and an abundance of emotionally charged and fallacious advertising, seeks to force Kroger to meet their demands through force of humiliation. This group would prefer defenseless citizens, disseminates propaganda, and attempts to crush all opposition.
Every Nevadan who may legally possess a firearm has the right to openly carry a firearm for their protection. While private businesses may decide on permissible conduct upon their premises, Kroger has stated that armed citizens obeying their local laws are welcome to shop at their stores. They have not bowed to the pressure of an extremist organization that seeks to deprive Americans of their natural right of self-defense and force other private entities
Nevada Carry supports Kroger in refusing to compromise with this organization that is short on facts, high on emotion, and engages in bully tactics to make Americans less safe and deprive them of their rights. Every business that ignores the taunts of a bully deserves our money.
