Philly, LA, Chicago announce selling all gun company stock they own to protest guns
Fox News Live (no link) | 1/28/13

Posted on 01/28/2013 8:58:53 AM PST by pabianice

Fox notes that demand for guns is so high since Obama's re-corronation that manufacturers and dealers cannot keep up. Gun shows are stuffed with customers beyond capacity.

One would think that these financially-troubled cities would want to keep their high-preforming holdings.

I guess it’s easier to do that... than to take on street gangs. Cowards.

Yawn: They did the same about 20-30 years ago. All show and no go.

Good. More stock for me. This isn’t Burger King and their crappy fries we are talking about. Obama has made gun and ammo manufacturers more profitable than any libtard in history.

Maybe Rush should invest in guns instead of tea.

Oh what a left wing belly laugh this is. If you know these cities and how they operate, they do everything to make everything more expensive and less efficient for their citizens. So selling good stocks is par for the course.

And of course it’s liberal socialist thuggery.

The question should be....

Why are financially-troubled cities risking money in the stock market?

I recall this idiot in Orange County, CA....Robert ( Bob ) Citron..a DIM BTW.....

Great move by the cash-strapped rat cities. Now they'll have more money to invest in windmills and solar panels.

It's all and pure boojit!

I'd LOVE to have stock in any gun manufacturer at this time in American history.

I wouldn't be surprised if Daisy has increased sales.

Selling at a huge profit is now called a protest move?

If they really want to protest, they will donate the profits from the sale to the local hospitals to pay the care for last weekend’s gang violence.

“Why are financially-troubled cities risking money in the stock market?”

Since Congress is exempt from insider trading laws, I wouldn’t be surprised if the states’ representatives foward inside info, or at least a current buy list, to the Controllers of the cities.

I say this toungue-and-cheek of course...but who knows?

40, 80, 85, 50..............

40% of all O’Bumbler's most ardent supporters have an IQ below 80. 85 is the average IQ for one of Holder's people. By definition, 50% of ALL people are below average IQ level.

Sorry, facts are facts. Just over 50% of the voters voted for O’Bumbler. That is a vast majority of the lower intelligent half plus the sycophants and government parasites.

If one wanted to make a statement against violence, one would be better served to protest the unaccountable, one-party governments of Philly, L.A., and Chicago.

Stocks that pay a dividend, and HAVE paid a dividend over many years are hardly a risky investment.

Blue chip stocks, when bought at the right price, often are returning several percentage points above the highest ‘safe’ investment and the likelihood that they will go out of business are slim. NOT NONE, but slim.

Great! Cheaper stock prices perhaps! Yay! Guns and Ammo are hot stock commodities.

I disagree....

I've owned and traded DIV stocks...and IF you don't know what you are doing....which I think most politicians fit that description, they ALL are risky. That comes with the territory.

Your second point is interesting. Entry is not everything...but probably 80% of buying and selling stocks.

I can give examples....probably hundreds if you desire.

But the whole point is....Cities that are in trouble SHOULD NOT be trading stocks. Period. That's my opinion.

I think the exempt laws aren't as liberal as you think....now.

That said....doesn't stop these crooks from telling their Uncle Monty to buy or sell XXXXX stock...before they "rule" on the company XXXXX...

Apparently Bob Citron, Democrat...was out of the loop. Ha!!!

I think that they should reinvest the proceeds in carbon credits.

No, by definition 50% are below median.

The gun stocks have almost quadrupled in 2 years, they are just cashing in on the government created crises.

Well, most voters are certainly below average, median, or just plain stupid!

Too bad for them - these are some of the strongest stocks in America, and certainly don’t need the interest of socially backward and crime-ridden cities in order to continue to thrive.
