Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc WBA.N, CVS Health Corp (CVS.N) and supermarket chain Wegmans Food Markets Inc said on Thursday they would start asking customers to not openly carry firearms in their stores, joining Walmart Inc (WMT.N) and Kroger Co (KR.N), in a change of gun policy following several deadly mass shootings in the United States.
The retailers are among a growing number of U.S. companies, such as Delta Air Lines (DAL.N) and Bank of America (BAC.N), that are responding to calls for action to help curtail the rash of gun violence that has plagued the nation, risking backlash from powerful gun owners’ groups as politicians consider options.
Earlier this week, Walmart and Kroger said they would ask shoppers to stop openly carrying firearms in stores across the United States. Walmart also said it would discontinue sales of ammunition for handguns and some assault-style rifles in U.S. stores, and called for action on gun safety after a string of mass shootings, including at Walmart stores in Texas and Mississippi.

To all of these store owners I say; I respect your right to tell me not to carry my firearm into your store but know that you will have to respect my right not to carry my money into your store either.
Law abiding gun owners not welcome , Crazy mass shooters welcome . SMH

Has an open carry person ever committed a mass shooting in a store? If not, this makes no sense except big business caving to the whims of the jackbooted left.

I don’t get it. If someone is ‘open’ carrying then that means you know who they are & they are ‘out there.’ It’s the one’s who want to do harm who hide their weapons… So this is simply a publicity stunt to pacify the lefties. Idiots!!! https://t.co/ctZBcmNJEl
