I read an article regarding 30+ companies refusing to sell to state and fed gov't who want to impose restrictions on citizens. In the comment section there was a question as to where the largest gun manufacturers are with all of this? (Remington, Smith and Wesson, Colt etc...)
I'm interested as to why they are not speaking up, leaving it to smaller manufacturers to stand their ground on behalf of the entire industry.
I’m sure it is more complex than this but my assumption is that most of the big boys are publicly held while the little guys are private. Once a company becomes public, all decisions basically boil down to the effect on the 6 month stock horizon.
