Advocates, average citizens demanding that Kroger adopt common sense gun safety policies

The good people at Everytown for Gun Safety have launched a powerful new campaign to convince the giant Kroger grocery chain to prohibit customers from openly carrying weapons in its stores. The campaign features three powerful photographs that highlight the absurdity of Kroger’s current policies — which prohibit customers from bringing in outside food, skateboards or shopping shirtless, but that do not prohibit openly carrying, for instance, assault rifles.

Below is one of the powerful images featured in the campaign — click here to see the other photos and to lend your name to the petition:
