Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/03/2014 - 00:39

The sign outside the Target store in ArvadaBy Lisa Maria Garza DALLAS (Reuters) - U.S. retail giant Target has asked people to keep guns out of its stores after being the subject of campaigns in Texas where people have brandished firearms in store aisles in their attempt to secure more rights to carry guns in public. "Starting today we will ... respectfully request that guests not bring firearms to Target – even in communities where it is permitted by law," Target chief executive John Mulligan said in a posting on its website on Wednesday. "This is a complicated issue, but it boils down to a simple belief: Bringing firearms to Target creates an environment that is at odds with the family-friendly shopping and work experience we strive to create," said Mulligan. A number of national eateries, including Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc, Sonic Drive-In, Chili's Grill & Bar and Jack in the Box Inc have also asked patrons to keep their firearms at home.
