Wegmans says it prefers customers not to openly carry guns in stores

Wegmans is joining the group of chains suggesting customers not to carry guns openly in its stores, saying it would 'prefer' they didn't.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Wegmans is joining the group of chains suggesting customers not to carry guns openly in its stores; saying it would "prefer" they didn't.

Walmart, Walgreens and Kroeger made similar requests of their customers this week after recent mass shootings.  A gun control group called on Wegmans to do the same a few days ago.

New York does not have an open carry law, but Wegmans has stores in Virginia and North Carolina, both of which do.
