Off Target

The retail giant Target has adopted a no-guns policy in all of its stores even if the law in your state or locality permits the carry of firearms on private property.

The change in policy follows agitation by anti-gun group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, most likely just the latest iteration of a pro gun control group with a fax machine.

Target’s interim CEO John Mulligan said in a statement,”Bringing firearms to Target creates an environment that is at odds with the family-friendly shopping and work experience we strive to create.”

By his statement Mr. Mulligan insinuates that gun owners are family unfriendly. Maybe he should have gone to a local gun range, shooting or hunting club where he would have witnessed families of all shapes and sizes enjoying and exercising our constitutional rights.

Responsible gun owners must combat and push back against this type of mushy and ill-informed thinking regarding the shooting sports. Perhaps Target should spend more time protecting the identity of their customers credit card information and less time on bogeyman.

Now that you know, choose to spend your dollars wisely.
