Target Asks Customers to Leave Guns at Home
Target is asking customers not to bring firearms into its stores.
Interim CEO John Mulligan calls it "a complicated issue" but says walking into a Target with a gun "creates an environment that is at odds with the family-friendly shopping and work experience" the company strives to create.
In many states, carrying unconcealed guns in public is legal.
A Target spokeswoman says today's statement is a "request and not a prohibition," and the company does not plan to confront armed shoppers. Target does not sell guns.
