Target asks customers to leave guns at home
July 3 , 2014
Target has reportedly asked customers to leave their firearms at home. Media reports idicate that the store has respectfully banned guns even in regions where they are carried openly.
A group called Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, which started a petition to make the company prohibit guns, lauded the move. Target is the biggest company in the country to take this decision - other chains such as Chipotle recently banned firearms as well.
"Bringing firearms to Target creates an environment that is at odds with the family-friendly shopping and work experience we strive to create."
