Retail giant Target announced Wednesday that it is asking people not to bring firearms into its stores, even when those stores are located in towns that allow open carry.
Our approach has always been to follow local laws, and of course, we will continue to do so, interim Target CEO John Mulligan said.
But starting today we will also respectfully request that guests not bring firearms to Target even in communities where it is permitted by law, he said.
Mulligan said Target has spent considerable time weighing this complex issue, but said the chain wants to create an atmosphere that is safe and inviting for our guests and team members.

This should do it for “guests” and “customers”. What’s the policy about criminals bringing guns in? Like if a robber...
No Guns , No Credit Cards ,Just Cash ,LOL
another gun free zone for me to avoid...that’s why I love Wallmart!
Carry concealed, and FU Target.
It’s nice to know who doesn’t want my business.
Dear Criminal Element,
Target stores are now easy pickings. No one will be armed but you!!
That is all....
My take on it is, THEY CHOSE TO NAME THEMSELVES. So live with it. Incidentally I have not been in a Target store in over five years, especially after I learned they were owned by a French bunch.
I don’t personally like it that much, but it is their right.
So plain to me, but they seem to be confounded by the concept that someone coming into to rob/kill/maim is not going to be deterred by your policy not allowing firearms on the premises.
Each of us can make a statement that individually will be ignored, until enough people make it, to rattle their chains.
Enter the store, ask to speak to a manager, and say to them, “I would like to shop at Target, but because of your new anti-gun policy, I do not feel safe here anymore. Goodbye.”
There’s actually been a spate of armed robberies following such announcements by other businesses.
Now that Target has officially declared itself a defenseless victim kill zone for criminals with all forms of weaponry, it’s a place best avoided.
I stopped shopping at Target years ago when they kicked the Salvation Army out at Christmas time .
Another place that I can’t boycott because it’s another place I already don’t patronize.
My gun goes where my money goes hello walmart bye bye target.
So... f*** Target.
Who needs ‘em.
I wasn’t too happy when they called Humpback Mountain a “Love Story” - in a promo they ran in their Electronics Department.
In this case, I’ll double-check with them before going there again - just to be sure that I’m not wanted.
I don’t see it as a big issue. How many will be offended that a bank refuse to let ppl who carry guns in?
