A Bunch Of Gun Activists Wore Assault Weapons While Walking Around The Baby Clothes Aisle In Target

People are not thrilled about it.

Posted on

Last week, Sonic and Chili's released statements asking their customers to not bring their weapons in with them to their restaurants.

Chili’s and Sonic joined other national food chains Starbucks, Wendy’s, Jack in the Box, Applebees, and Chipotle that have all publicly told patrons not to bring guns into their stores, regardless of what local open carry laws may dictate.

Now, many users on social media are demanding Target release a statement about its policy on customers carrying guns in stores.

Target has yet to respond to the #OffTarget hashtag that has started in response to the photos.

My kid plays a game where she jumps out from behind a clothing rack and says "BOO!" while I'm shopping. I'm #OffTarget til #gunsense @target

.@Target you stopped selling toy guns that look realistic, but you allow openly carried assault rifles? What gives? #OffTarget
