Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America:
Our new ad shows how Kroger policies are inconsistent and alarming – particularly given that the laws in a majority of states do not require a background check, permitting or even training to open carry a firearm. In all states, businesses have an obligation to protect their employees and patrons and until Kroger steps up, Moms will put our money where our mouths are and shop at stores that put our safety first like Safeway and Alberstons.
Kroger needs to know that their refusal to act is costing them money as Moms take our grocery shopping elsewhere. Now we’re keeping track of all the money Kroger is losing to its gun sense competitor and with the help of our supporters, we will create the World’s Longest Receipt.

This book will give you a sense of what might be possible, as well as the inspiration and the courage you need to get up and do something to improve and change the world we live in.

Quite fitting, if I might say so myself.
