In a new ad put out by Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in Americathey perfectly point out the very really dangers and utter stupidity of allowing open carry of guns in stores, or really anywhere.

The ad has the caption:

“Watch our new ad aimed at Kroger employees – from cashiers to the C-suite in Cincinnati: “One man is here to open carry, the other to open fire, how does she know which is which?””

“Which is which?” is exactly the right question to be asking. How can any person spot the difference. You’d like to think you’d be able to, but the reality of any situation in that moment, you would likely not be able to… or at least not until it’s too late.

The ad shows a cashier at a grocery store waiting and working at the check-out stand. Then, with a split screen, it shows a man in either screen walking into the store with a gun hanging over his shoulder. The girl stares at him, and then the ad asks the “which is which” question.

There is absolutely no reason to walk around stores with giant rifles hanging from your back. It’s stupid, and doesn’t eliminate any clear and present danger, but rather adds more guns and fear to what could potentially already be a very scary and violent situation. Guns are the NOT the solution to gun violence. That’s like saying cheeseburgers are the cure to obesity, or more cars will help eliminate car crashes…. the logic isn’t there.

The truth is, these “open carry” situations include guns that are carried by wannabe vigilante make-believe law enforcement. The Second Amendment is clear, guns are to accessible to all to arm the local militia’s, as stated in Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution, to fight foreign invaders, and they are to be well regulated.

Kudos to Moms Demand Action. Keep up the good work and promoting common sense solutions.
