Opposing divestment in gun companies

Reminds me of those who opposed divestment from South Africa. The forces that prop up injustice and regimes of violence are relentless.

1. Pretty much.

Just like the people that wouldn't divest in a company that uses slave labor or busts unions: They don't give a damn where the money comes from, as long as the money comes. How fucked up do you have to be to think "Hot damn, a massacre! Time to buy up stock in gun manufacturers!"

I really wish we could've gotten gun control in steps, instead of trying to pass a larger bill with multiple things. If we could've gotten a quick ban on the sale or transfer of large cap magazines the gun industry stocks would probably be tanking.
