"Banning your way to a safer shopping experience!! That's the Meijer and ALDI guarantee!" 

What a load of horsecrap.

Meijer and ALDI are the latest companies to ban customers from openly carrying firearms in their stores. 

Meijer made the announcement on Twitter:

Clearly concerned about being expelled from the hip and trendy "Liberal Snowflake Association of America," ALDI quickly issued their own announcement on Twitter as well:

WIBC host Tony Katz offered a response to Meijer and ALDI's "follow the crowd" change in store policy.

"Only firearms in America are treated in a way to make people afraid and act in a manner that is totally irrational. You see a gun, you're supposed to immediately lose your mind, fall to the ground screaming, and wet yourself.

None of these are good for us. But if a company wants to make a decision about openly carrying firearms in their store, fine. But that decision shouldn't be based on fear, it should be made on merit.

Meijer and ALDI are making this decision because they are afraid of 'Moms Demand Action,' the Democrats running for President, and Dianne Feinstein. You're not a leader; you're a follower. You're more afraid of Shannon Watts than you are of the 9mm on my hip."
