the Cub Foods situation. As you may recall, I posted on Dec. 20, 2012, that I was
asked to leave Cub Foods, St. Anthony Village, while
grocery shopping with an open-carry, securely holstered firearm. And I was told
by the manager that ALL Cub Foods have a “no guns” policy (I have a permit to
carry and MN does not require concealment.) The store was not posted with a sign.
Here’s the link to the original post: https://www.facebook.com/tcGunsAndCarry/posts/363604410402608
(This isn't a debate about open carry vs. concealed, it's about the fact that Cub Foods bans guns, period).
After posting an ACTION ALERT about the situation, I was asked by
Andrew Rothman, VP of Minnesota
Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance, to hold off on calling for a boycott
until further information could be learned about whether the particular store
was a corporate vs. franchise (which could explain a variation in policy),
and/or whether the manager was simply mistaken (since many people have
commented that they open carry at other Cub locations without incident. And I
have open carried at that St. Anthony location without prior incident).
Andrew Rothman has spoken with Cub Foods’ corporate Director of Loss
Prevention, Kelly Brandes, and I’ve pasted his summary of the conversation
below, which also includes Andrew’s opinions of the situation. Below Andrew’s
comments are my personal thoughts and opinions on the situation as the founder
of MN-RKBA & TCGOCF. Thanks for reading.
