Many businesses across the country have begun banning guns on their property.
It is a free country after all. They are free to ask you to leave your gun at home, and you are free to take your business elsewhere.
Here’s a list of 53 businesses who would prefer to keep you unarmed.
Many of these businesses are large chains. While some local establishments may turn a blind eye, their corporate policy calls for a weapons ban. Target was one of the few to publicly announce that they would not actively enforce their own ban. In 2014 Target announced their decision to ban firearms as an attempt to placate gun reform groups like Moms Demand Action, but have refused to actually enforce the ban to prevent alienating their customer base. In public statement Target interim CEO John Mulligan wrote, “we will also respectfully request that guests not bring firearms to Target – even in communities where it is permitted by law.”
