Is Target targeting its own customers with its "no guns" policy?
by Gina Cassini | Top Right News
Within three days of a new policy asking customers not to bring their guns to Target stores, reports have surfaced of armed attacks on customers at those stores.
Three Target shoppers at three different stores in Georgia alone have been robbed by armed thugs since the discount retailer announced on July 2, in a letter from its CEO, that customers should leave their guns at home when they visit Target.
This news follows an unfortunate but rather obvious pattern of establishments whose businesses or customers have been targeted after putting anti-gun policies in place -- and comes on the same day that a major study revealed that concealed-carry permits dramatically decrease violent crime.
In May, I reported on a North Carolina restaurant which posted a prominent "No Guns Allowed" sign and was promptly robbed by armed gunmen the very next week. And 3 Jack-in-the-Box locations suffered robberies and a shooting within 2 weeks of their new corporate policy "requesting" no guns on site, similar to the Target policy.

It’s now too dangerous to go into Target ... :-) ...
I've got an idea for a new slogan for them:
Target Our Customers!
Will these idiots ever learn???
That was the first thing I thought of when I heard about this story. You would think Target would have enough problems with their debit card breach that occurred last year.
Brilliant line. Perhaps the "Target" name will finally make people aware of how insane these anti-gun policies are.
It is still stupid that a store called TARGET with targets all over the place, has to have a gun policy.
I’m a Target, he’s a Target, she’s a Target
We’re a Target wouldn’t you like to be a Target too?
“At Target... We’re ALL Targets!”
“I know! They could hand out little lapel pins showing their target-shaped logo, bearing the slogan: I’m A Target”
I’ll up the anti. A label pin in the shape of the target logo with the words, “Target Me.”
The short answer is no they won't. The average, run of the mill gun control freak, is clueless. The hard core gun control leaders know exactly what they are doing. They are trying to help with the socialist/communist take over of America. They know that well armed Americans, would not like that too well, and might resist them. They are not well intentioned at all.
Fewer Words Fewer Letters Always Makes A Slogan Betters.
Oh! Oh! I've got another great idea! How about..."
"We've Armored The Hell Out Of Our Credit Cards, But Now Our Customers Are Sitting Ducks!"
Ill up the anti. A label pin in the shape of the target logo with the words, Target Me.
= = = = = = = = = = = =
A simple T shirt with the logo on front AND back, handed out as customers enter the store.
OR WALMART could sell them....
I almost always carry a gun into target because I almost always carry a gun when I go shopping.
I hear you. Maybe they think they are too big to fail.
In the past I would occasionally shop at Target because it was near other stores that I patronized. It was not my main store for shopping. TARGET is now on my NEVER SHOP LIST. I refuse to go into any store that will not respect my “Right to Conceal Carry” in the great State of Texas.
If I am not mistaken they have not posted the require 30-06 sign that says you can not carry concealed. I do not care if they have or have not. I will never spend one damn penny in their store again. I will also encourage all that I know to not buy in any Target Store.
I forgot to add this comment. When I am in a public place and know many law abiding citizens are carrying concealed weapons I FEEL SAFE!
The President’s secret service do not carry little signs that say this is “a gun fee zone.” They carry Uzis and and 1911s. Perhaps the Secret Service knows something that Target does not know.
Most times I carry. Sometimes I do not.
Look for the lawsuits to grow against Target.
Wait until the lawsuits start flying.
Target sells nothing I can’t get elsewhere a lot cheaper. Target really to be honest sells very few things I want. It’s about like a post Rosie O’Donnell K-mart only cleaner.
Won’t affect me. The closest I get to Target is when I’m going to the Lowe’s down the street from them.
I’m one of the people of Wal-Mart (without the crazy clothing).
JC Penny took their eyes off the marketing ball appealing to gays...my how they pay. Business should do the parallel of “shut up and sing”. Businesses are not good vehicles for social experimentation...Target will regret this UNNECESSARY move.
Oh come on, that cannot be happening given their new no guns policy, after all we know that criminals are eminently scrupulous about following the law..
Its not like outlaws would take advantage of people due to some silly rules there must be another explanation.
Bump for reference.
The one thing I wouldn’t take to Target is a credit card. You’d think these guys have enough issues just taking care of biz and not compromising their customers private information. Wading into this gun thing now was pretty stupid.
I asked (quietly) about this at our local Target.
The manager stated he will not confront anyone about lawful carry in his story. Then he asked about how to get range time.
From a legal perspective, someone needs to sue stores and venues that do this. If I get robbed because I have to leave my legal carry at home, then the venue should be liable for not providing protection.
Hey, crazier things have happened.
target nuance by making it a “request” not an edict.
