Show Target that moms mean business—by taking yours elsewhere. Target has allowed gun extremists to hold rallies in its parking lots and openly carry loaded guns in its stores. This weekend, go #OffTarget and spend your money at businesses that have gun sense. See below for a list of companies that already have taken a stand against open carry and for customer safety.
Then post photos of yourself shopping at Target’s competitors—or photos of what you bought there. Be sure to include an #OffTarget sign in the photo. Then, send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org;
Businesses with gun sense*:
- Toys R Us
- Babies R Us
- Food Lion
- Whole Foods
- Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores
- Sprouts Farmers Market
* All of these companies prohibit open and/or concealed carry of firearms in their stores. Amazon is not a federally licensed firearms dealer, and does not facilitate private gun sales via its website. See here for a list of restaurants and other companies that have adopted gun sense policies.

About the #OffTarget Campaign
Semi-automatic assault rifles don’t belong in the baby aisle—or anywhere else in Target. Yet gun extremists around the country have made it a point to bring their rifles into Target stores. Moms don’t want to feel unsafe and intimidated when we go shopping with our children. We’re asking Target to immediately end open carry in its stores. Target needs to follow in the footsteps of Starbucks, Chipotle, Chili’s, Sonic and Jack in the Box and put customer safety first. Nearly 90% of Target customers are women; they need to know we expect them to get gun sense.
