    Ignore it, it's a push-poll, the options are ...

    Answer 1 of 3 Yes, Target did the right thing
    Answer 2 of 3 No, the policy infringes on Second Amendment rights
    Answer 3 of 3 Its a step in the right direction, but it's not enough

    I certainly don't like the options given in the questions, but it's all they've got.

    After a year of such crap polls, we'll be hearing about another 97% consensus. It has taken a year to beat back that crqap in the AGW/Climategate debate.

    Why, do you think he's even dumber than an anti-gun legislator than can't fine his [DELETE] key?

    I don't think that the CEO is stupider than a legislator...that's a tough one to beat.

    them selves in the foot. No need to being such negative attention to the cause, thats just plane stupid!

    Not from what I see, Target instituted a opinion, a NON binding opinion. Nothing has changed other than the whining of OC Fudds. OTH OC Fudds post a picture of a man pointing a HANDGUN at the head of a little girl, not realizing this idiot not only had a handgun, but was a conceal carrier.

    Is it not funny how silly Fudds can be when clouded with emotion.

    "No, the policy infringes on Second Amendment rights" Stupid available answers. Yes, they did the right thing for their stockholders and none of it anything to do with the 2nd Amendment.

    hey sell widgets. The don't want to waste time listening to women demanding crap unless it is more widgets for which they are willing to pay Target more money. They don't care about guns obviously as for years they were like WalMart and many others - we follow the laws where the store is located. But now it is an issue, in great part because of our fellow OC supporters. So Target took a non-committal way out - we ask you not to carry guns into the store but we aren't going to post signs or anything about it - please carry on with your shopping. I would have done the same darn thing. It is Target's job to sell widgets and make money for stockholders, not argue about gun rights on either side.

    I'll continue to go to Target as much as I ever did.

    The poll looks fairly accurate to me...

    How does one carry "only for self defense?"
    No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. Thomas Jefferson (1776)

    If you go into a store, with a gun, and rob it, you have forfeited your right to not get shot - Joe Deters, Hamilton County (Cincinnati) Prosecutor

    I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians. - George Mason (father of the Bill of Rights and The Virginia Declaration of Rights)
