Target: Please leave firearms at home

NEW YORK – Target is “respectfully” asking its customers to not bring firearms into its stores, even where it is allowed by law. In a statement Wednesday interim CEO John Mulligan said that Target wants a “safe and inviting” atmosphere. “This is a complicated issue, but it boils down to a simple belief: 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.
