Target’s Gun Ban Has Unexpected Results As Assailants Attack Store’s Unarmed Customers

Three days ago, Target enacted a new policy in which they asked customers to politely leave their guns at home or not bring them on the premises of any Target store. This was probably decided after a loaded gun was found in the toy aisle of one of their stores as reported here on The Inquisitr.

Unfortunately, their gun ban policy is proving to be problematic as numerous reports are coming in about Target’s customers getting robbed at gunpoint.

Perhaps as a reaction to the robberies, Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder said that there was no ban on guns, and it was just a “request” that the company hoped customers would honor. She said there would be no signs banning guns nor would customers with a gun be asked to leave.

I don't shop at Target

because I find what I need at cheaper store, but deep down I think of them when people say it is not politically correct to say Merry Christmas at Christmas time.

It always irks me that Target

It always irks me that Target doesn't sell bullets or targets:)

My Target Story

I haven't shopped at Target for the last 12 years because of their idiotic return policy. It's too bad, because I liked their merchandise selection.

I bought a package of 6 pair of socks, wore 4 pair, then encountered one new sock with a hole in it. I took the package and the receipt and the holey pair back to the store and tried to either exchange it, or get a partial refund. I was willing to be flexible.

No, they would only exchange it if I took the socks off my feet, walked back home (30 min walk), dug the socks out of my hamper and dresser, and brought all six pair back in and exchanged all six for a new package of six. Note that this makes the 5 good pair unsaleable and a complete loss for either Target or the manufacturer (if they bother to return them), as well as being a waste of time for me, the customer.

My immediate problem was solved by me. I told them I would go into the store, buy another package, open it, insert the pair with the hole, and return that before leaving today -- and I did (they got to keep 5 good pair).

That isn't why I won't shop there. I don't give up on an entire store chain because of one cashier or one "customer service" manager or store manager being overzealous or having a bad day -- I've been there.

The reason I'll never go back is because this stupid policy was parroted to me, without any interest in fixing my problem if it happened again, from bottom to top of the company. A civil letter to them online and a conversation by phone with their HQ showed that they have a company policy of treating all customers like fraudulent refunders, regardless of the illogic or lack of common sense. They clearly had no interest in pleasing me, ever, or of wanting my business, and when I said I could not shop anywhere with a policy based 100% on mistrust, they shrugged.

I am an individual, and I deserve to be treated with respect. I helped put a shoplifting and fraudulent refund ring in jail, so I'm not against common sense return policies. Target's policy is stupid and pointless.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Target a-go-go? I say no-no.

Target wants me back? Too bad. Their politics have been made known. I'm not going back until they admit their mistake. Simply back pedaling isn't going to get it.

It only takes one to KEEP AMERICANS FREE. Know your duties & rights as a juror. Stop the unconstitutional conviction of innocents in federal custody. The Fully Informed Jury CALL 1-800-TEL-JURY www.fija.org IMMEDIATELY if not sooner. It's that important.

Dumb criminals

If a Target shopper found a place to keep cash in yoga pants, I wouldn't want it.

Defend Liberty!

Well, Request DENIED!

My life and the lives of others are far more valuable than some request. My gun and I are good buddies. I would never offend my 1911 by leaving it in some car, out of my control while I go and shop. That to me is irresponsible! I must maintain control over my firearm at all times! It is my responsibility and I take it quite seriously.

I appreciate that they would NOT be kicking people out for having guns.

I will STILL SHOP AT TARGET because they do NOT have an anti gun policy in place and hope others will do the same. The moment they do put an anti gun policy in place, i will never shop there again.

As of now, Target is cool with me!

Love Liberty, be Vigilant

"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" (2 Corinthians 3:17)

Faith in God will prevail all things!

a simple explanation.

Someone should have just explained to them that they weren't allowed to bring there guns in the store.

Although if I were a target I would ban guns too.

Death to all pandas

I see what you did there.
