Which stocks are associated with the NRA?

Asked by skfinkel (12884 points ) December 21st, 2012

I mean other than obvious gun companies. I need to make sure that I don’t inadvertently support/own anything that has even a whiff of NRA around it.

A Google search will give you plenty of lists of companies that donate to Republikans. Pretty much any of them is guilty.

I caught a tail-end of a report on NPR the other day about fund managers and the complexities of knowing which funds contain companies who may have some dealings with the NRA or the firearms industry in general.

Trying to be politically correct with stocks is a major challenge, considering that the whole concept of stock trading is just legalized gambling and fuels a lot of the unethical ‘corporate greed’ behavior that challenges our society today.

I realize this is hard, and we are all involved in some way with pensions, etc., but after hearing them talk at the press conference today, I need to do whatever I can to distance myself from that nuttiness.
