TAMARAC. FLA. (WSVN) - - The Broward Teachers Union, state representatives and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School parents and students held a joint press conference, Thursday afternoon.
The union called for Florida Gov. Rick Scott to force the state pension board to stop investing teacher retirement fund contributions in three firearm manufacturing companies.
You have turned our teachers retirement fund into blood money, said Meiling Hoshing, Marjory Stoneman Douglas student. No teacher wants your unhealthy decisions on their soul.
One of the firearm companies receiving a bulk of the funds manufactures the AR-15 rifle, the weapon used in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting.
These people are stooopid.
Fine, then invest in lower return stocks.
ignorant is more like it and the sad thing is they are “spodah” be teaching your kids.
Typical liberal crap,”Cutting off the nose to spite the face”
They are invested in mutuals that have gun makers buried with in them but are to frigen ignorant to know how it all works.
F’em let’em tank their retirement gains
Unions are the foundation of communism. I can understand why they don’t want Americans to be armed.
Will the state cave to their “demands” as quick as publix? Will dizznee cave to the threatened die-in at dizznee world in orlando by little davey and hoggalites? Stay tuned.
Sounds like an investment opportunity. They didnt mention the names of the companies.
All teacher unions should do this. Short it then ride it back up. Yeehaw!
So investor X could short those stocks then call every teacher’s union in the country “suggesting” that they disinvest in such stocks.
Time for the state legislature to make union donations voluntary and taxable and force them to donate to the NRA.
I have an idea, let the state just turn over the entire BROWARD teachers union pension management over to the GENIUSES at the Broward teachers union.
These guys are so smart, let THEM invest their OWN money.
The state won’t touch it. You gun grabbing, criminal loving clowns in the BTU figure out how to make your retirement funds grow. Should be easy for you, after all you’re TEACHERS—the smartest people in the world.

The last time our tea party got into a street fight with the teachers union, we discovered that 400-lb commie slobs could run away real fast to avoid bloody noses and black eyes.
Just as an example, Ruger is at about $60 now and has been as low as $43 in the last year. It would only be fitting for the teacher’s union to donate all these ill-gotten gains to charity; by which I mean the NRA.
Maybe theyd be happier in some of bammys solar projects or shovel ready projects?
