UPDATE: Loaded Gun Found In Target Toy Aisle.
When you’re shopping at Target, you shouldn’t have to worry about someone parading around with a semiautomatic rifle, or whether your kid is going to find a loaded handgun while looking at toys.
More than 115,000 people have already signed the petition to Target asking for gun sense policies to protect customers and employees from gun violence — and over the next two days volunteers are going to be delivering these petitions all across the country.
Target’s paying attention. Can you sign the petition right now so we can include it when we deliver signatures to Target offices and stores?
TARGET, please issue gun sense policies to keep your customers and employees safe from the risk of gun violence by protecting against people openly carrying weapons in your stores.
The problem is that in the majority of states, virtually anyone can openly carry loaded weapons without any permits, training or background checks. That means it’s up to companies like Target to do the right thing and issue gun sense policies for their stores.
We’re making a huge impact. Moms and other supporters are taking over social media to ask Target to protect its customers, and our petition has been covered by media all over the world, including the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and CNBC.
Automatically sign the petition asking Target to create gun sense policies that ask their customers to leave their guns at home. We’ll deliver your petition signature along with more than 115,000 others tomorrow and Tuesday.
Thanks for standing with us,
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America
Everytown for Gun Safety is a movement of Americans fighting for common-sense gun policies. We are moms, mayors, survivors, and concerned citizens.
Thanks! Take the next step:
Members of Moms Demand Action will deliver this petition in person to Target. Please spread the word about the petition on social media.
Gun extremists armed with semiautomatic rifles have walked into Target locations around the country, weapons out and loaded, making sure customers saw their guns.
It’s often legal to do this, because many states have weak laws that allow people to openly carry around loaded weapons without any permits, training, or background checks. That means it’s up to companies themselves to protect their customers when the law won’t. Yet according to the Wall Street Journal, Target doesn’t have any policies to stop people from carrying weapons in its stores:
Target, which boasts on its website that between 80% and 90% of its customers are women, has no restrictions on customers carrying guns in its stores.
Chipotle, Starbucks, Chili’s, Sonic Drive-In, and Jack in the Box have already responded to petitions from moms and other gun sense supporters asking the stores not to allow guns. Now it’s up to Target to protect families who shop in its stores.
Sign the petition to automatically send a message to Target’s CEO asking him to create gun sense policies to protect customers in its stores.
Thank You For Taking The Next Step.
