Open-carry law at Kroger challenged by activist group

Posted: Updated:
Michigan's open-carry law allowing adults to carry a firearm is being challenged by an activist group against Kroger.

The group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America says Kroger should say no to customers with guns, despite Michigan's open-carry law.

The same group previously went to Target, which agreed and now asks customers to not bring guns to its stores.

"I don't know about you, but I'm not scared when I'm in the cereal aisle thinking I need a gun," said Linda Brundage of the moms group. "I don't want to see someone else carrying one either. It's not safe."

Kroger responded to the moms group with a statement:

"Millions of customers are present in our busy grocery stores every day and we don't want to put our associates in a position of having to confront a customer who is legally carrying a gun. That is why our long standing policy on this issue is to follow state and local laws and to ask customers to be respectful of others while shopping."

Kroger shoppers had a mixed reaction to the issue.
