Target asks customers
to leave firearms at home

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 7/2/2014 12:17:42 PM

NEW YORK — Target is asking its customers to not bring firearms into its stores, even where it is allowed by law. In a statement posted Wednesday on the retailer´s corporate blog, interim CEO John Mulligan said that Target wants a "safe and inviting" atmosphere for its shoppers and employees. "Bringing firearms to Target creates an environment that is at odds with the family-friendly shopping and work experience we strive to create," he said. (Snip) A group called Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America gathered nearly 400,000 signatures for a petition asking Target to prohibit shoppers from carrying guns

Comments:
After a shakedown by a probable Bloomberg front group, not even fully closeted gun owners are welcome within warm embrace of Target stores. Muslims in full burkas, public displays of affection by the alternative lifestyle set? Strike up the band.

So I won´t shop at Target. And if I do have a need to go in, I´ll be concealing.

Shocking! Asking me to give up my Constitutional right to bear arms?

What´s next ... no condoms and birth control pills in the pharmacy? /s

I´ve never been inside a Target store ... do they have a pharmacy?

Oh, really? I´ll make sure I let them know I won´t ever be shopping at Target. Fine with me, I find their "gay pride clothing" quite offensive, and I´ll tell them that too. Recently, some other foolish establishment posted a sign in their window, "gun free zone"; and they were promptly robbed. When you advertise your own stupidity, you usually end up paying.

So what, just carry anyway. Its just a store "policy", not an actual state law. If you´re discovered by a store employee, just state, "Oh, sorry. Do you want me to leave now, or after I spend a bunch of money?"

Target lost some of my business after allowing my credit card data to get hijacked at Christmas last year.

Now they want me to come to their store unprotected.

Target can stuff it. They´ve seen the last of my money.

But, we shouldn´t just leave. We should tell them why.

Once again, Target shoot´s itself in the foot. They are already struggling because of declining sales. When they banned the Salvation Army bell ringers during one Christmas season, I avoided them completely. Moron liberals running that corporation will soon kill it off. Sears and K-Mart and Radio Shack are about to bite the big one. Just how many shootings have there been in any Target store? Probably not even when Cabbage Patch dolls were all the rage.

Target asks customers to leave firearms at home - and be good little victims.

If I ever go into another Target store, which I doubt, I´ll be asking the nearest clerk for the code and location of the Safe Room they provide for the customers when someone doesn´t follow their wishes. Or are we supposed to just crouch in some clothing isle and wait to be injured or killed?

What do we expect from a MN-based company? Seems like Target could make for a more family-friendly atmosphere by convincing the customers that their credit card won´t be maxed out by data thieves by the time they make it home.

There are few places that I go that I don´t feel much safer knowing that I am armed, and so are other law abiding citizens.

Being a sitting duck for an armed bad guy doesn´t make me feel safe at all.

Gee, I wonder how long it´s going to take before the first Target gets robbed by a robber who knows he won´t have to worry about getting shot? I´m guessing in 5-4-3-2-1...

The problem with Moms Demand Action is they believe they are safe and secure from harm. You can bet most of these moms consider their comfortable world out of harms way. In their favorite store or their cubicle at work all is well. I knew four moms who probably would be alive today if someone in their nice suburban office had concealed carry. Six children in all get the news mom isn´t coming home. Sorry kids.. the office had a no weapons policy and one nutcase customer didn´t hear about the policy.

many years ago we lived in a small town in the White Mtns of AZ. The law was open carry, but the local Wal-Mart had a sign at the cust. service desk requesting that customers check their personal firearms at the cust. svc desk. So really, this isn´t a new concept nor is it particular with Target. I think they´re trying to walk a fine line. The Wal-Mart sign wasn´t annoying in 1997 - but that was then. Life in these United States is a little more threatened these days...

She walked through her running tests and got winded climbing stairs, yet a physically unfit female FDNY probie was still allowed out in the field like a normal graduate — and given a year to pass, The Post has learned. “She’s literally the most pathetic specimen of physical fitness I’ve ever seen,” fumed an academy classmate of Choeurlyne Doirin, 39, who was given a uniform and a “light-duty” assignment even though she did not graduate on June 2 with the other 286 cadets.

Shortly after Jared Lee Loughner shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords as she met with constituents at an Arizona strip mall, FBI agents rushed to his Tucson residence, fearing it was rigged to explode. Technicians with bomb-sniffing dogs found the front door locked and blocked by furniture, so they entered through the garage. After searching the kitchen, front room and hallway, they arrived at Loughner´s bedroom, where dogs focused on a small safe behind the door. Using radiographs to peer inside before opening it, they detected bomb-making components — batteries, a circuit board, wires and a numeric keyboard system.

President Obama insists on flirting with impeachment even as House Republican leaders insist there’s no such possibility. Obama uses a passive-aggressive strategy that can be judged as a political maneuver, a personality disorder, or both. Secure in the knowledge that impeachment is not the same as removal from office, Mr. Obama brings up the topic on his own and with bold defiance. Martyrdom goes well with a Messiah complex and Mr. Obama’s speeches are a non-stop litany of depicting himself as a victim of Republicans. Already operating beyond the constitutional bounds of presidential power, Mr. Obama’s strategy is to push the bounds

The president’s demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached from the world’s convulsions. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it’s for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement. Regarding Ukraine, his detachment — the rote, impassive voice — borders on dissociation. His U.N. ambassador, Samantha Power, delivers an impassioned denunciation of Russia. Obama cautions that we not “get out ahead of the facts,” as if the facts of this case — Vladimir Putin’s

When President Obama issues executive orders on immigration in coming weeks, pro-reform activists are expecting something dramatic: temporary relief from deportation and work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants. If the activists are right, the sweeping move would upend a contentious policy fight and carry broad political consequences.

The IDF has not yet located and destroyed all of Hamas´ terror tunnels, but the consensus about the intent behind them is quite clear. This is Jonathan Dahoah HeLevi of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. Ismail Haniyeh, the Hamas prime minister, delivered a revealing speech on March 23, 2014, in which he stressed the strategic importance of the Hamas attack tunnels, which, he argued, have changed the balance of power with Israel, when taken together with his organization’s military build-up. In the meantime, the IDF’s war against the tunnels continues. On Monday IDF forces thwarted another terror attack after two groups of Hamas

Even as President Obama grapples with the crisis of immigrant children arriving at the Southwest border, White House officials are laying the groundwork for a large-scale expansion of immigrant rights that would come by executive action within weeks. Officials signaled strongly Friday that Obama´s move would shield from deportation large numbers of immigrants living in the country illegally, as advocacy groups have demanded. Roughly 5 million of the estimated 11 million people who entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas could be protected under a leading option the White House is considering, according to officials who discussed

One third of Americans think President Barack Obama should be impeached, a new poll says.
