Target says leave your firearms at home

(WFLX) - Target is requesting that you leave your guns at home while shopping in their stores. Even posting a notice Wednesday on its Web site.

Target hopes this will create a safe and inviting atmosphere for both customers and staff. This is in response to a petition from Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

Other chains across the U.S., like Chipotle, Chili's and Sonic, have also banned firearms in their buisnesses.
