    This is something that looks good that might cause more trouble than it solves. What if the customer "respectfully declines" Target's "respectful request"? Then you've created a conflict where none might have been.

    Yes, they have not banned them. They are asking people not to bring them in.

    Right, I mean they can't "ban" them. What if someone shows up at the door and didn't get the message? Does the security guard then say, "Well, we'd like you to lock it in the trunk of your car..."?

    I mean, if you're going to Target WITH your gun, legally, I don't think you're going to be taking kindly to the "request"? I'm just not sure if they've thought about this long enough (apart from Target's lawyers not wanting their client sued if someone gets shot in their store).

    So do you plan to take YOUR gun into Target?

    Targets are supposed to be shot at, not walked into. icon_twisted.gif
