A corrupt, probably bankrupt union does this while their members buy guns for protection. Nuts.

Yeah, let’s punish companies that manufacture weapons and ammunition for law enforcement, the same law enforcement that protects them every single day.

Yes, quite a few teachers are taking firearms training and getting ccw permits.

And there’s more good news: When the teachers’ pension fund sells their shares, there will be more shares available for purchase by you and me.

30,000 die from guns a year, including bad guys the police kill
650,000 Americans use guns to thwart criminal assaults a year that save there lives, there families, niegbors, and even police officers

Doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out that Guns save more lives then take away. 2nd admendment wise at least, over seas in warzones, its the opposite ( someone was gunna point that out)

When will these self rightous pension funds divest themselves of high fructose corn syrup drink and snack manufacturers? How many pension funds have tobacco makers in their funds? Must be OK if we kill kids slowly.
