Kroger asks customers to not carry guns into its stores


(WIAT) — Grocery chain Kroger is asking customers not to carry guns into its stores. The request comes just hours after Walmart made a similar announcement. 

Kroger says it will also call on lawmakers to pass gun reform laws, such as requiring stronger background checks.

Last March, the company stopped selling guns in its 45 Fred Meyer stores in the Pacific Northwest.

There is no word on how the grocery store chain plans to enforce the request.
