Big pension makes statement on guns


The California State Teachers' Retirement System (CalSTRS) board has voted to divest itself of investments in gun and ammo makers if they product is illegal to purchase or own in the state of California. Recall that the pension came under fire when it was revealed that it owned a stake in the Freedom Group, a gun maker, in the wake of the Sandy Hook tragedy. Other big institutions are likely weighing their policies. This may be the start of a trend. Article
