Target for Criminals? Two Robberies Occur at Target Soon After CEO Asked Customers Not to Bring Their Guns to the Store

On July 2 Breitbart News reported that interim Target CEO John Mulligan “respectfully” asked law-abiding citizens not to bring their guns in Target stores.

Just days after Target’s request the Gainesville Times reported that three men were arrested for allegedly pulling a handgun to rob a man in a Target parking lot.
