Target PR Group Manager: The Request to Leave Guns Home is ‘Not a Prohibition’
You have to love it when liberals try and take a step back. Target is probably about to go the way of Heck’s and K-Mart.
Check it out:
Following the release of Target’s request that law-abiding customers “not bring firearms” into their stores, Target PR group manager Molly Snyder tried to clarify Target’s position by saying, “This is a request and not a prohibition.”
On July 2 Breitbart News reported Target interim CEO John Mulligan “respectfully [requested] that guests not bring firearms into Target.”
According to the Los Angeles Times, Snyder spoke on that same morning to clarify Target’s position: “At this time, we don’t have plans to pro-actively communicate with guests beyond the initial ask from Target leadership that is taking place today.”
In other words, Target is lining up with Starbucks instead of Chipotle, Chili’s, Sonic, and Jack in the Box. Whereas the latter four asked law-abiding customers not to bring guns into their restaurants, Starbucks simply asked customers not be so flamboyant in openly carrying them. But Starbucks’ CEO Howard Schultz made clear that customers carrying guns would still be served.
