    Hi VaGunTrader- Thanks for the post. However it is way to early to know if their new policy is good or bad for their business.

    I do not support their policy, however they have very bright business executives that do studies to determine whether their decisions will in fact affect their bottom line, that bottom line is PROFITS. Today their decision may show that they made a good creative business decision however 5 months from now if their profits are down, the decision will be considered a failure. Therefore the policy will be changed.
    Big company's just don't make these decisions with out consulting their most savvy business executives and their brightest corporate counsel.

    I for one would never go to a place where I did not feel SAFE OR WANTED.

    Now do I believe the powers to be at target have the right to control what items a customer brings into their story, OF COURSE I DO.

    If my favorite diner, started implementing a dress code for dining in their establishment, would I continue to go there.. Yes, I would, the food is great and I kind of fancy myself a dapper dresser, however if they said I could only wear flip flops and a hawaiian shirt, then I would find another diner to spend my cash. Its not personal, its simply business, and businesses need to look out for their bottom line, and their stock holders..

    Just forget target and start shopping where you feel wanted and safe.

    Best regards.

    What post are you replying to?

    The question asked in the poll is: "Do you support Target's new firearms policy?"

    Your rant is not even close to on topic.

    Hi Tfred

    In my second sentence, I state, "I do not support their policy".

    The poll is stupid. There is no correct answer.

    maybe it is a security feature on the network I am currently on but when I select "No, the policy infringes on Second Amendment rights and click "Cast your vote" I get an error message saying "Please select an answer choice to vote". I am not willing to select one of the "other" answers to see if it will recognize those choices. Is anyone else having a similar problem?

    At ~90,000 votes the anti's have a 2% lead and my second vote was apparently counted.

    There are web sites that purport to detect and report site blocking - in the name of net neutrality.
