What Do You Think of This Ad Encouraging a Boycott of Kroger Stores?

After watching this ad for Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, I had mixed feelings.

Licensed gun owners with open carry permits are allowed to bring their gun in super markets (in states where open carry is legal). Guns are not allowed at Kroger in states where open carry is not legal. Basically, MDAGSA is asking you to boycott a grocery store for obeying the law.

More importantly, what about states with concealed carry laws? In those states, the old lady standing in line with you may well be packing … and she may or may not be well versed in handling a firearm. I think it’s the guns that I can’t see that I’m most fearful of.

There are several “expert mom” ads in this series of ads for Luvs. But this 30 second one is new … true … and funny.

This one is pretty funny too … “What do you have for cracked nipples?”
