Tell Target: donít be bullied by a billionaire!

An online outlet claims that Target is apparently paying attention to gun control groups and seriously considering a sweeping ban on firearms except for law enforcement.

This broad ban may end up being a formal policy change that could even result in stores posted. The reasons are likely due to the fact that they were targeted by the gun control groups and then someone, likely a shoplifter based on the evidence released so far, left a gun behind in the toy aisle of a Target store in South Carolina.

Isn’t the name TARGET kind of scary? Somebody needs to tell them to change their name.

Maybe it’s one of those “trigger” words we keep hearing about.

Appropriate, actually.
If they jump onto the "Gun Free Zone" bandwagon, that's what they make of themselves and their customers.

Target was one of my favorites at one time. Then, they embraced the image of catering to gays (<4% of our society) and now they are sucking up to another liberal cause.

Too bad.

I would simply stop going to Target if I could not carry, particularly after my wife’s Bible School teacher had her purse stolen in the parking lot (on a day that we were there). I don’t go to dangerous places unarmed.

When I saw an article about a couple eating places I sent them the below letter.

Chili’s, Sonic enforce no-guns policy
http://www.msnbc.com/the-last-word/chilis-sonic-enforce-no-guns-policy

Your rule about guns and particularly targeting individuals with concealed carry permits seeks to confiscate a person’s inherent natural right of self-defense.
Unfortunately psychopaths do not cower before rules such as yours excluding firearms, but instead seek the sanctuary you create for their brutality, terrorism and suicide. For example consider Adam Lanza at the Newtown shooting. He stole his mother’s guns (which was against the law), and then killed her with them (which was against the law). Next he transported these loaded guns onto school property and inside the building (which was against the law). He discharged the weapons within the city limits (which was against the law), and murdered 26 people (which was against the law). Finally, Mr. Lanza committed suicide (which was against the law). As usual he was the only person with a gun and the police showed up for body counts and paperwork.

At this point I could provide you an essay explaining the futility of popular gun control initiatives including yours. However, you have clearly adopted a primitive faith position that can best be compared to chanting an unintelligible mantra while beating chicken entrails with a rock. You have invited your customers to join you in a suicide pact that overrules the judgment of Sheriffs who inspected an individual’s personal life before granting them authority to use deadly force for self-protection. Since any thinking person should never venture unarmed into a gun free zone, the only reasonable step I can take now is to warn the 50 or so people on my email list and the unnumbered legions reached on Facebook and Twitter to never enter your restaurants again.

I bet you could post this one at different times of the day and get a different group of people. I know I am lazy enough not to check the website throughout the day.
