California Teachers Pension System Divests From AR-15 Company, But Not Smith + Wesson

The 500 is much more powerful than the 44. It is also much more demanding and punishing on the body of the shooter as well as the shootee. Shoot one before you buy one. You and the gun may or may not be compatible with one another. It's also considerably more expensive to feed than the 44. A high end 44 load stopped grizzlies just fine in the past. Grizzlies aren't cockroaches. Cockroaches become nearly immune to the same poisons over time. Grizzlies haven't evolved to where they're immune to a 300 grain 44 caliber bullet with enormous shocking and penetration power.

As part of the national stampede of politically-correct moves in response to the Sandy Hook tragedy, the California teachers pension system very publicly divested from a hedge fund that owns the company that makes the so-called “assault rifle” AR-15.

But according to the pension system’s website, it continues to own nearly $2 million in Smith + Wesson stock – $1,988,000 to be exact.

The gunslingers at Smith + Wesson are perhaps best known for making the .44 Magnum, “the most powerful handgun in the world…it could blow your head clean off,” in the words of Clint Eastwood’s Dirty Harry movie...
