Bowing to the left Publix has pulled all gun related magazines from its stores. Interestingly in my local store it replaced the magazines with several promoting Oprah as a great potential presidential candidate. I plan to try shopping at Publix's competition.

Did you tell their CEO? [email protected]

It's interesting that a number of these CEO's pushing these agendas became CEO in 2016.

My Publix in St. Petersburg took them out a week ago and I complained. Today they were still gone so I spoke to the same manager as last week. He said they got orders from corporate to take them out. With the extra space they just put extra magazines there and chance only put Oprah and O related magazines there. I checked two other Publix stores in St. Pete and they had no shooting magazines either.

If I just happen to HAVE to visit one of these establishments out of need or necessity.

Would it be wrong for me to be a condescending dick and display contempt to everyone, customer or employee alike, that I couldn't avoid interaction with?

So load up your cart (not buggy) with food, frozen especially, and then go looking for a gun magazine and when you can't find them, ask someone and then tell them to get a manager.  When he/she comes, tell them that if they can afford to alienate you as a firearms owner, who had nothing to do with any of what's going on, then they can afford to find someone else to take your place as a customer.  And then walk out.

This.  I was at my local Publix two hours ago and they had several gun magazines.

I do know they will remove magazines from time to time.  They did stop selling a non-firearms magazine that I used to purchase there.

All arfcommers living near Publixes must do the following:

1) Go to an_Publix
2) Overfill up shopping cart with merchandise. This works best if fresh produce is piled in the cart.
3) Abandon cart and leave Publix

Yes the continued stigmatization of gun owners is a minor thing not to be concerned over. It's not like public opinion on certain issues means anything during elections.

People read magazines? But seriously the day when the interwebs is swept clean of gun sites by liberal cock gobbling CEOS will be a bad day.

I fully understand that a company may do what it wants and this isn't a violation of the 1st amendment.

However, it is high time we took a page from the liberal playbook (the gay cake baking one) and demand that it is illegal for web hosts that use a PUBLIC entity (the internet) to block free speech.

There is precedent there too. A private Mardi Gras krewe is free to keep out black members, but isn't allowed to use public roads. "In 1991 the New Orleans City Council, led by Democrat Dorothy Mae Taylor, passed an ordinance that required social organizations, including Mardi Gras Krewes, to certify publicly that they did not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, disability, or sexual orientation, in order to obtain parade permits and other public licensure."

So if a company wants to use public space, whether literal or electronic, they cannot discriminate against free speech.

They're telegraphing this punch.

Also a lot more people have gotten into shooting.  There are also far more "I don't hunt/heritage/etc., I own guns because of rights" people than there were before.

It's going to have the opposite effect. People don't like being told what they can't have. They'll eat the forbidden fruit.

Smoking works because they jacked the price of a pack up to $10 in a lot of places.

Oh they're trying it, but it's not going to fly.

Nobody bought giant piles of cigs, lighters, and matches at great personal expense because they felt they were needed to safeguard fundamental human rights.    They are biting off more than they can chew here.

Almost nobody buys gun rags at grocery stores - just like almost nobody used the Delta NRA discount.   But plenty of people are going to tell them to go fuck themselves and find a new place to shop.

Do we have a link to any type of official statement?  All the gun rags were still up in my local Publix a few days ago.

In any case, I spend $300-$400/month there.  If this is true, fuck them.

Most likely a district manager rather than corporate?   One would think the such a publicity hounding move for social change would have been blathered out in a press release.

Has anyone in the OP's AO checked out their Publix for confirmation?

If I recall,  most prime shelf space, is "leased" to various vendors (which is why you see the uniformed Pepsi rep stocking their product, and not the store stocker).  I belive the same to be true with the magazine section.  So, Publix may not have too much say as to what goes there.

Perhaps arf.com members in the grocery industry can correct me on this?

I'm going to need to see some proof on this. Publix is really the only game in town in my area. Winn Dixie is trash, smells horrible and is 30 minutes away. Trader Joes and Whole Foods would be my other options.

I will do all I can to avoid Publix if this is the case as I am a firm believer that the vote heard loudest is the vote cast with dollars and I spend a lot of dollars at Publix.

About the only reason I'll set foot in the grocery store while my wife shops is to thumb through the gun mags and maybe buy if there is something interesting. Switching grocery stores is easy as pie, and I'd be happy to so if any decide to play that SJW shit here.
