Moms Demand are still at it on their campaign to shame Krogers into banning guns from their stores. As manner of example of flexing muscle and showing people how butch they are, they exhibited exchanges they had with the recently merged Albertsons/Safeway and call it a triumph even though Albertsons had forbidden guns in their stores for a long time.

Now my curiosity was piqued. Apparently for Albertsons, we gun owners are a very powerful threat even if we are law-abiding. So I decided to contact Albertsons myself and ask them a question and expecting a prompt response like they did to Moms. I filled the customer comments form and got the automated response, normal thing. The question was:

I wish to enquire about your company’s policy and measures to keep violent felons and sexual predators from going in your stores.

Here is the first batch of emails:


Note the date. We are talking an impressive response time. Good customer service!

So, what was the answer? Well, it has been almost 2 weeks and not a peep.


So from April 16 till today, Albertsons has not dignified itself with providing an answer. I know I am not as cute as Shannon Watts, nor I have the name recognition of Moms Demand or Michael Bloomberg. And they may even have done some checking and say “Well, this guy here is a gun nut troll!” But to go silent on the issue? I mean a simple “Dear Mr. Gonzalez. Rest assured that we have policies in effect to avoid as much as possible that our customers face danger. But I know you will understand that these policies are to remain private so they could not be abused by ill-intended parties. Here at Albertsons/Safeway are always doing our best to keep your shopping experience safe
Julius C. Pumpernickel III”

It does not take much imagination to pull this one out.  Now my personal take will be that Albertsons/Safeway is more afraid of Law Abiding Citizens with a proven record of being good guys than actual armed robbers and child molesters or that at least the bean counters have decided it ain’t worth it to have any decent safety measures.

PS: In case Albertsons Lawyers decide to get stupid, print this post for your records. Insurance by Streisand Effect.

  1. Odd, I’ve been OC’ing at my local Safeway (Kirkland, WA) for over 5 years now. I guess I must be doing it wrong… 😉

  2. Moms Demand Action’s Kroger campaign follows similar efforts aimed at Target, Starbucks, Chipotle, Sonic, Chili’s and Jack in the Box that led these companies to take swift action to stand with Moms and enforce or adopt policies that prohibit open carry to protect the safety of their employees and customers.

    None of these stores have banned anything. They asked nicely for gun owners not to.They have never said they couldn’t. More lies from Mommies Demanding Attention.

  3. In Idaho a sign is required to restrict guns.
    The two Albertson’s store in Coeur d’Alene have no sign.

    1. In Idaho, a sign carries no weight of law. A property owner may ask an open carrier to leave. If he then fails to comply with the property owner’s request, he could subsequently be charged with trespassing. As there is no requirement in the Idaho statutes, the presence or absence of a posted sign is immaterial.

  4. I have open and concealed carry many times in the Albertson’s in Jackson, Wyoming without anyone batting an eye at it. Looks like a policy that is selectively enforced depending on if an area is pro or anti.
