The not-so-nice folks at Target seem prepared to cave to former Mayor Bloomberg and his paid-for Moms who Demand Action (go to a singles bar, ladies).
Sources are telling us, from about every direction, that Target is looking to prevent a repeat of the Open Carry Texas jackwagons bringing rifles into their stores again.
Unfortunately, they aren’t stopping at kindly asking folks not to open carry in their stores.
The corporate policy set for adoption would preclude anyone except on-duty law-enforcement from carrying in Target stores.
In other words, they don’t want our business.
Here’s what our friend Mr. Kubicek over at Days of our Trailers has uncovered:
From this and chatter from the undersphere, it’s looking very likely that Target may cave to pressure from the Bloomberg mommies and ban all forms of carry in their stores. It certainly didn’t help that they were highlighted by OCT to ‘normalize’ open carry as well as the jack-hole who left a loaded gun in the toy aisle.
If you shop at Target, here’s the way to get ahold of them and encourage them to stick w/ state/local laws on carrying:
Pass this on. We’ve had enough PR losses due to this and every one means more money in Shannon Watt’s pocket.
What do we do if and when this happens?
Shop elsewhere. Save your receipts and mail them to Target headquarters. Let them received a million dollars’ worth of Walmart, Meijer, or other competitors’ receipts, along with a “NO GUNS = NO MONEY” card.
Send a short, handwritten note.
“I used to be a Target customer. I *might* come back if you take down your “No Guns” signage which makes your store an attractive target for violent criminals. Until then, as you can see, I’m taking my money and my family’s safety to your competition’s store. Hugs and kisses.”
Of course, nothing bad every happens at a Target store, right?
