Target ‘Respectfully Requests’ Shoppers Don't Pack Heat
Target is "respectfully" requesting that shoppers not bring guns into its stores. The retailer posted a notice on its website Wednesday and quickly drew attention on Twitter — #ontarget. "Our approach has always been to follow local laws and, of course, we will continue to do so," the notice says. "But starting today, we will also respectfully request that guests not bring firearms to Target — even in communities where it's permitted by law."
