3 weeks ago anti-gun groups like Moms Demand Action were celebrating their “win” after Target sent out a memo asking their customers to leave their guns at home. The store never officially “banned” guns from their stores per se, but many believe their new “no gun” policy was simply to appease the anti-gun radicals that were setting up protests at Targets across the country.
Now the first murder has taken place at a Target since the new policy came into effect. A known gang member with a gun shot a man in a Target parking lot, all while ignoring the store’s policy and any regard for human life.
According to abc7,
VAN NUYS, LOS ANGELES (KABC) —
A suspect has been arrested after a man was fatally shot at a Target parking lot in Van Nuys early Tuesday morning.
Authorities say the shooting happened at Hatteras Street and Sepulveda Boulevard at about 5 a.m. A man in his 40s was rushed to Holy Cross Medical Center, where he died. His name has not been released.
A suspect was arrested, and a weapon has been recovered. He was also taken to a local hospital because police suspected he was under the influence of drugs.
The circumstances of the shooting remain unknown. Authorities say the suspect is a known gang member, but the victim is not believed to be involved with gangs.
The investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
This story underscores the fact that criminals do not follow laws and they definitely don’t abide by store policies. Attempting to disarm the law abiding only makes life easier for the criminals, while putting the innocent at risk.
But to save face and be politically correct Target decided to ask all gun owners to law aside their 2nd amendment rights and basic rights of self-defense. I’m not going to say that their new policy is what caused this fatal shooting, but it’s pretty obvious that it sure didn’t help keep it from happening.
