    There are likely a hundred reasons to be an ex Catholic other than guns, but it is a start.As Rand indicates , it's disheartening when great scientific achievements are attributed, not to the minds of men but to that of a ghost.In most religions self-sacrifice is the key to understanding, and Rand had a hard time swallowing the fact that some thinkers whom she admired had deep religious beliefs.When meeting one of them she would ask, "You really don't believe (You fill in).....do you?"

      Yes, more than hundreds of reasons to reject them. There all kinds of "liberation theology" leftist activists but it is only a consequence of a rot that is much deeper and much more fundamental.

    So will this "Report" categorize gun violence in both legally owned gun and those illegally owned?

      Absolutely. I'm sure that the intent of the nones is for pure, scientific data that will present an accurate, unbiased representation of reality. As long as it supports their wrong-minded position.

        Therein lies the problem when ever we as legit gun owners bow to the gun grabbers demands. Information gleaned from these reports will be picked and parted for their nefarious usage and anything that goes against their desires will be redacted out. Not a chance in hell this info would be used in any form of an honest manner.

    If you are going to protect the world from violence by controlling things instead of those who commit violent acts then everything needs to be controlled or eliminated. I don't think anyone could name one object that has not been used to cause harm to another human or their property at some time. Controlling objects really controls all those who might use that object, not the act committed by an individual.

      This also apples to redirecting blame based on political correctness. Example: Blaming an artist that draws a controversial cartoon instead of the indiviualds that preach murdering people who draw these cartoons is just utterly, wrong. Not right! Left!

    This is what did it? Although terrible, certainly not the worst of what that organization of manipulative, totalitarian, invisible friend liars has done. Not even close.

    This is unsettling that the CEO of Sturm Ruger would bend to such a demand by minority stockholders. I was going sell/exchange Remmington 380 that I bought for my wife for a Ruger 380 now that is not going happen.

      The company's board of directors And CEO opposed the policy but have no choice when the shareholders voted against their recommendation.

      It wasn't just a minority. According to the article, "Shareholders — apparently including large institutional investors — sided with advocates who included nuns from the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary in Marylhurst, Ore., to back the proposal. Ruger's largest shareholder is money management firm BlackRock; Vanguard is also a large investor in the company."

      Those voting for it may or may not have been a minority of stockholders and some of them may or may not have understood what it meant, but those voting for the policy were a majority of those voting.

        I added a new article about this today. These were the original miscreants. I also saw an article by Reuters that had an actual tally of the votes. The numbers are disturbing and apparently a large number of Ruger stockholders are either ignorant or anti-gun.

    From another lapsed-Catholic, let us not forget the current Pope is a socialist, big time. When will they require the same record keeping from schools, which have been a contributing factor since Clinton's curriculum was first in Columbine? You can't demand students be put on psychotropic drugs, turn their back on values, do psychology malpractice in classrooms, then fail to call police on troubled youth, and expect to keep stdents safe.

    Could this be another Wall St stock manipulation?
    Never would I under any circumstances take a private company public and give the scum on Wall St a chance to steal my life's work. It's been a rigged game for more than a century.

      As usual, FFA out-ranks me in cynicism (I must try harder).

      If an investor wants to buy stock and proposes some sub-optimal financial return, well ok, it is their money.
      But in this case, and many others, the investors are not investors,
      they are not investing for maximum (or satisfactory) financial return.
      They are using other peoples' money for their own pet projects.
      The other people could be contributors to a pension scheme, supporters of a
      charity, and so on, they have weak control of, and low interest in how the money is invested or used.

      I wonder if a legal case against this sort of thing is possible on the grounds of failing fiduciary duty?

        I believe that this is an abdication of fiduciary responsibility by the "shareholders" to the financial well being of the company. I believe the CEO should have immediately challenged the motion and referred it to legal counsel. The "data" the "nones" hope to produce would be used to hurt the company and firearms industry in general. I can't believe that someone at the meeting didn't challenge these leftists phonies. It's absolutely time to remove the religious tax exemption for the factions who engage in politics.

    Without thinking about it the idea has merit.

    After 2 seconds thought, the auto industry is going
    to be in trouble bigger than the VW scandal.
