Silly Taxpayers! Only Government Should Invest in Gun Companies!

So, we’ve already established that the gun-hating government of New York has spent nearly $6 million in taxpayer money to subsidize the New York-based Remington Arms Co., which manufactures the politician-hated Bushmaster rifle used in the Newton school shooting. We know that New York is part of a group of states (including Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Oklahoma) that has doled out more than $19 million in subsidies and targeted tax breaks to gun manufacturers over the past decade.

In between gifting gunmakers and trying to outlaw their products (or I should say, their competitors’ products; we can always carve out exception for hometown factories, amirite Joe Lieberman?), politicians are now pressuring state-run pension funds to disinvest from gun manufacturers, and even using their bully pulpits to shame the banks that lend to them. From the New York Times:

Fresh from persuading a $5 billion pension fund in Chicago to divest from companies that make firearms, the city’s mayor, Rahm Emanuel, on Thursday urged the chief executives of two major banks to stop financing companies “that profit from gun violence.”

    I’m not quite as bad as GDC97, I would lock him up in a homosexual bath house and not get out until his buddies like obozo screw him until he can’t walk or talk.

    What gun mfrs do we have in Ellanoise? Armalite, Springfield Armory, LMT, Rock River Arms, Les Baer went to Ioway, a KrinkMaster near Shitcago, and a couple three more that escape me. A lot of taxation that Rahm is pissing away!

    There is some question about the assault type weapon being used Sandy Hook. There are reports of it being found in the car. If that is the case, only hand guns were used. The anti-gun nuts and media are trying as hard as they can to capitalize on this unfortunate incident.

  • Sukhotai

    Data has already been released by NBC that NO “so-called” assault rifle was even in the school, only (4) hand guns.. but never let the truth get in the way of some lying politician
