NEW YORK (AP) -- Target is asking its customers to not bring firearms into its stores, even where it is allowed by law.<br />
In a statement on the retailer's corporate blog, interim CEO John Mulligan said that Target wants a "safe and inviting" atmosphere for its shoppers and employees.<br />
"Bringing firearms to Target creates an environment that is at odds with the family-friendly shopping and work experience we strive to create," he said.<br />
Target Corp. made the announcement after questions arose in recent weeks about its policy on the "open carry" of firearms in its stores.<br />
