Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America called on their troops to join the “stroller jam” outside of Targets Shareholders meeting in Dallas to protest open carry in their stores. Unfortunately for them, a group of 12 showed up.
The dozen women were holding signs that stated, "Texas moms expect more” which is a play on Target’s motto of “Expect More. Pay Less.”
“We’re asking them, like we did successfully with Starbucks and Chipotle, to put a national policy into place that covers states like Texas where open carry of guns is allowed,” said Stephanie Lundy, Texas spokeswoman for Moms Demand Action.
According to Dallas News, Lundy also said “I’m a Texas mom. I love me some Target, where I can get a gallon of milk and anything else. This skirt I put on this morning is actually from Target. But I won’t be going there for a while.”
Although it was called the “stroller jam,” Dallas News reported only one woman showed up with a stroller and her granddaughter.
Moms Demand Action currently has a petition urging Target to ban open carry in their stores. According to the organization, they have more than 200,000 signatures.
