    Even firms which promised to liquidate their firearm investments in the wake of Newtown -- such as Cerberus Capital Management -- have been slow to do so, suggesting the extent to which "money talks" in the gun control debate.
    An investment firm hesitating to walk away from gains? How surprising. Money talks and bravo sierra walks, as we all know.

    Unfortunately, the people in power don't give a fig whether we "want" gun control or not. Unless we vote out all the bad guys and Impeach a few national figures - and do a lot of both very fast - we might wind up with it anyway.
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    It's no different than when Al Gore was denouncing the tobacco industry back in the 90's, while he was invested in it.

    I would actually be surprised to find out that the Little King, Shotgun Joe, Aunt "lets take em all" Feinstein and some others arent reaping financial gains on the stock market in some way from the run on guns and ammo.

    Politicians don't need to invest in gun companies to reap ridiculous profits. They are exempt from insider trading laws. They know some company is about to get a juicy gov contract and they can buy it up before any announcement. Look at their net worth after a single term. As a registered principal I would get a $10,000,000 fine for that (yes, 7 zeros). An effort was made to stop that advantage but it got "edited out" so they can still do it last I heard. It's an even sweeter deal than they get for health insurance and that my friends is a SWEET deal.

    Didn't know that. Not surprising, though.

    "Yet this government never of itself furthered any enterprise, but by the alacrity with which it got out of the way... The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way."
