Smith & Wesson Report Sure To Upset Anti-Second Amendment Shareholders ^ | 2/12/2019 | Tom Knighton

Posted on 02/12/2019 12:44:23 PM PST by rktman

A while back, a group of activists bought shares of Smith & Wesson to try and force the company into what they saw as a more socially responsible direction.

Of course, that’s all a bunch of male bovine excrement, but what else do we expect from anti-gunners?

What they accomplished was to push the company to conduct a study on product safety, which was supposedly a major victory.

Well, Smith & Wesson conducted the study, and it’s unlikely the activists will like it.

The group called Adrian Dominican Sisters, led by a nun named Sister Judy Byron, is part of the Northwest Coalition for Responsible Investments, an anti-Second Amendment activist group. Their latest target was American Outdoor Brands Corporation (AOBC), which owns Smith & Wesson. The company was forced to do a study, which was released late Friday, but the results likely won’t make the nuns happy.

In their report, AOBC defended itself against critics of the Second Amendment, writing, “Specific terms sometimes are used to craft a narrative in support of those agendas. For example, phrases such as ‘gun violence’ are used to create a perception that the presence of a gun, in itself, somehow creates the conditions for violence.”

The M&P 380 Shield EZ is great for those with less hand strength. It is a 9mm sized pistol chambered in .380 ACP, which as a result has an extremely light recoil spring making it very easy to manipulate.

Ruger has a similar handgun, that was actually out first, the LC380. It is the LCP 9mm chambered in .380 ACP with a lighter recoil spring.

I do focus groups and surveys for a few extra bucks a week.

Any 2nd amendment or gun questions are usually phrased:

Do you DISLIKE, HATE or REALLY HATE the 2nd amendment?


Same with Trump.

If the survey pays well enough I’ll skew a poll and try to answer as a “moderate” :)

I’m sure these whacko protestors will turn over any profits they make on the stock sale to some worthy children’s assistance group.

My wife uses a Taurus Slim 9MM - mid size for smaller hands and fairly small recoil. I use the Ruger LCP .380 as it’s small enough to be convenient.
