The 13 members -- which include State Street Global Advisors, TIAA’s investment manager Nuveen and pension funds in California, Florida and Connecticut, where mass shootings have occurred -- is asking for changes in business practices rather than threatening divestment, the group said Wednesday in a statement. It’s unclear how much traction the investors will gain, since they aren’t among the largest shareholders of two large publicly traded gun manufacturers, Sturm, Ruger & Co. and American Outdoor Brands Corp., formerly known as Smith & Wesson. “We’ve tried to do it alone in the past, but you need a group,” Christopher Ailman, chief investment officer of the California State Teachers’ Retirement System, who is helping coordinate the effort, said in an interview.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. , Sept. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- American Outdoor Brands Corporation (NASDAQ Global Select: AOBC) today reported voting results for its 2018 Annual Meeting of Stockholders held September ...
Activist Catholic nuns from around the country succeeded Tuesday in getting shareholders of Smith & Wesson's parent company to pass a resolution asking management to give an accounting of how the company monitors gun violence.
Investors in American Outdoor Brands Corp. on Tuesday won a shareholder vote urging the top U.S. firearm maker to do more to address gun violence. Nearly 70% of investors in Sturm, Ruger & Co. backed a similar shareholder proposal at that company in May. The percentage of shareholders who backed the proposal at American will be disclosed in later financial filings.

Proxy services have backed activist investors pushing for a report on gun violence and "smart gun" technology.
Investors at American Outdoor Brands Corp approved a call for the gun maker to produce a safety report, officials said during its annual meeting on Tuesday, marking a second win for religious activist shareholders focused on firearms makers after a series of mass shootings in the United States. The resolution, approved over the company's objections, asks its board to report by February on its efforts to monitor gun violence, to research and produce safer guns, and for an assessment of reputational and financial risks. All nominated directors at the Springfield, Mass.-based company, the parent of Smith & Wesson, received a majority of votes cast, according to a preliminary vote tally given by an official during the webcast meeting.
In addition to facing off with shareholders, American Outdoor also found itself on the receiving end of grievances from the law enforcement community. Leaders of the Major Cities Chiefs Association, a law enforcement organization that represents dozens of large North American police departments, sent the company a letter last week asking it to address issues ranging from gun theft to making firearms easier for police officers to trace.
The Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility won a resolution on gun safety at American Outdoor Brand's annual shareholder meeting, the same resolution it successfully passed at Sturm Ruger earlier this year. The group wants Smith & Wesson's parent company to make a report on whether it is adequately addressing the risks that its products are associated with gun violence and to show evidence it is exploring ways to make safer guns. The maker of Smith & Wesson firearms lost a prolonged fight with religious groups and other shareholders who have been pushing it to consider a plan to help reduce the harmful effects of its products.
At the heart of the matter is a decision by American Outdoor to stop training courses for police officers and soldiers -- while another company picked up contracts for similar training using virtual reality simulators. Saltz’s position on the boards of both companies is gaining scrutiny from shareholder advocates even as the company faces questions over gun safety from the religious leaders, a national police group and investors. American Outdoor had long provided firearms training at its 57,000-square-foot Smith & Wesson Academy in Springfield, Massachusetts.
The company’s “firearms are the most commonly used guns recovered at crime scenes by police departments in many cities across America,” states the letter, signed by Montgomery, Maryland, police chief J. Thomas Manger and Art Acevedo, Houston’s police chief.
American Outdoor Brands (AOBC) is seeing positive earnings estimate revisions, suggesting that it could be a solid choice for investors.
