As many of our readers know earlier this week Walmart then Kroger enacted bans on open-carry in their stores as a knee-jerk response to the recent spate of mass shootings in our country.
Well now three more retailers have decided enact in-story open-carry bans of their very own. The three retailers are Wegman’s Food Stores, Walgreens and CVS.
In fact CVS took it a step further as you’ll see in a moment.
Wegman’s Food Markets jumped right in asking customers not to open carry in it’s stores:
“There’s nothing more important than the safety of our customers & employees. The sight of someone with a gun can be alarming, and we don’t want anyone to feel that way at Wegmans. For this reason, we prefer that customers not openly carry firearms into our stores."
Then the drug store chain Walgreens stepped up and issued the following statement on gun control:
“We are joining other retailers in asking our customers to no longer openly carry firearms into our stores other than authorized law enforcement officials.”
To make matters worse the chain’s communication team then tweeted a statement in support of Shannon Watts and her anti-gun Mom’s Demand Action group:

Finally CVS got in on the fun and decided that banning open carry in their stores would somehow reduce gun violence:
““We join a growing chorus of businesses in requesting that our customers, other than authorized law enforcement personnel, do not bring firearms into our stores.”

As you can see CVS took it a step further and asked their customers to refrain from concealed carry as well.
So what do these chains hope to accomplish with these bans on open carry?
Do they think criminals will learn of their new policies and refrain from robbing them?
My guess is the most significant things these chains will accomplish with their bans on open-carry is generating a ton of new business and customers for their non-Second Amendment hating competitors.

The only thing these bans will accomplish in terms of public safety is increase the risk of gun violence in their stores.
When will liberals learn that banning guns solves nothing? Probably never is my guess.
Will these open-carry bans change your shopping habits in any way? Sound off and let us know in the comments section below.
