In light of the shooting, I suppose a lot of people are having some sort of PR-motivated, misplaced feeling of guilt. Or they’re making projections about the market that haven’t historically been accurate. To wit:
Cerberus to sell gunmaker Freedom Group after shootings. Seems a teachers’ union is threatening to pull its funds.
Discovery Channel cancels hit “American Guns” after the shooting. Because, you know, showing lawful activity on TV is bad.
And I’ve heard mutterings, but no confirmation, that “Sons of Guns” might be getting axed too.
And Dick’s Sporting goods has decided to step selling the most popular rifle in the US. Doesn’t seem like that’s a smart business move.
A bunch of weak-willed ninnies, if you ask me.
For a while there, we were winning the good fight because of the exposure to the shooting sports on reality TV. We’ll see if that can continue.
