Target is no longer selling Pokémon or sports trading cards after a brawl in a parking lot that involved a gun

May 17th

Trading cards are hot right now due to crazy popularity during the pandemic.

They are so hot, in fact, that stores like Target have been limiting sales per person but are still getting lines of people looking to score some rare Pokémon or Lebron James.

Things ramped up to a whole new level on May 7 when four men in Brookfield, Wisconsin jumped a man in a Target parking lot who had just bought cards:

The perps, aged 23-35, got a taste of their own medicine when the 35-year-old victim pulled his legally concealed pistol to defend himself.

No shots were fired as the weenies that attacked him quickly scrambled away when they saw his weapon.

Smith & Wesson, I choose you!

In response, Target suspended sales of all Pokemon and sports trading cards at all 1,900+ of their stores "out of an abundance of caution."

All four of the perps were arrested and charged with battery, strangulation, and disorderly conduct.

You know the end is near when peeps are almost killing each other over things like Pikachu.
