I've seen many many people who freely stop and let the clerk who's running up to them go through their bag when the magnetic strip sets off the alarm. I guess they're free to let the store trample their rights in that way but I won't allow it. I'm with you (see my earlier post), if I pay for the item and it still sets off the alarm, oh well, I still keep walking.. Nothing they can do. They lay a hand on you, they had better have some hard evidence to back up their actions or they've now just opened themselves up for a lawsuit.I've found that there's not enough interesting stuff in Target to keep me occupied while the wife looks for whatever she came for. Even Walmart is more interesting, though the parking lot at the local one is miserable.
What really drives me up a wall is those alarms that trigger if the counter clerk forgets to nullify the anti-theft device. Once I pay for something it's mine and they have no right to paw through my stuff when I leave.
Probably not. Really looks like more a matter of not wanting the upper-middle-class/lower-upper-class soccer moms in their giant SUVs to get upset (most of that sort are anywhere from truly hoplophobic to just not very familiar or comfortable with guns). Since that is their target (heh, heh, heh) demographic, can understand it. Now - that ain't the same as approving, either that or a number of other policies they have. As previously noted, I don't shop there.From what I read, it is not a ban. It is simply a statement made by Target that they don't want firearms on their property.Simply, a legal caveat in case something happens down the road so they can say they do not support firearms so they can't be held l iable. The liberal media is the one that used the word "ban" just to see how many ******* guntotlers they can dig-up to come out of the woodwork and say something stupid, that's all. If anyone open carries and has never gone through gun retention classes, they are a fool anyways. Keep it hidden. Dah
Didn't Target sell guns and ammo at one time...........or am I mistaken? Seems like I remember them doing so when I was a very young kid but I could be wrong. Isn't their store name about as politically incorrect as the "Redskins"? Maybe we should start calling them something less controversial so the anti's won't be clammering to shut them down.
