Attention Target shoppers: Popular retailer changing rule, how it could affect you next time you shop

Target has announced today, Wednesday, it’s adopting a no-gun policy.

The national chain is asking customers not to bring firearms to its stores, even in communities where it’s permitted by law.

Target’s interim CEO John Mulligan said in a statement bringing firearms “Creates an environment that is at odds with the family-friendly shopping.”

The company had recently come under fire by anti-gun lobbying groups like “Moms demand action for gun sense.”

The third largest U.S. retailer is the biggest company yet to ban the so-called “open carry” of firearms.

Chipotle became the first major company to ask customers not to bring guns to its locations two months ago.
