The Trump administration is preparing to publish on Thursday long-delayed proposed rule changes for the export of U.S. firearms, a State Department official said on Tuesday.

Gunmaker Sturm Ruger & Co directors faced little opposition at its recent board election, a securities filing showed on Monday, despite its policy of not talking with shareholders even in the midst of a national debate over gun control. All nine of Ruger's candidates won more than 10 million votes "for" a one-year board term at its annual meeting on May 9, the filing showed. Ruger's proxy showed BlackRock with 2.9 million shares of Ruger's common stock, just under 17 percent, as of March 15, and Vanguard with 1.7 million shares, or 9.5 percent, meaning neither could have withheld all support from the directors.
Sturm Ruger outperformed the S&P 500 by roughly 700 per cent over the past ten years. For decades the self-styled “arms maker for responsible citizens” has been one of the largest gunmakers in the US, ...
You could buy shares in banks and encourage them not to finance gun manufacturers.

Or you could buy shares in gun manufacturers and lobby them to stop manufacturing guns.
A majority of Sturm Ruger & Co investors on Wednesday voted to support a call for the gun maker to produce a report on the safety of its products, in what shareholder activists called the first victory for such a proposal. The resolution passed in the wake of marches and demonstrations in support of gun control during the three months since 17 people were shot dead at a Florida high school. It calls on Sturm Ruger to report by next year on how it monitors the use of its products in violent crimes, on research to produce safer firearms and on risks gun violence could pose to its reputation and finances.
There’s a long history of socially motivated shareholders noisily calling on corporations to improve their record on progressive issues, only to watch their proposals whither and die when big institutional investors side with company management. That’s what makes a vote yesterday (May 9) among shareholders of Sturm, Ruger & Co., a US gun maker, so…
& Co. said Wednesday it would heed a shareholder call to publicly detail what the firm is doing to prevent gun violence. The resolution was put forward by a small coalition of investors who began buying gun stocks two years ago so that they could pressure executives for change, Sister Judy Byron, a nun with the Adrian Dominican Sisters, said in an interview earlier this year. BlackRock hasn’t disclosed how it voted in Sturm, Ruger’s case, but it warned gun industry executives in March that it could vote against management on shareholder proposals.
It was the first major test this year for faith-based shareholder groups, which have been urging the nation's gun industry to act after recent extreme examples of gun violence.
On a per-share basis, the Southport, Connecticut-based company said it had profit of 81 cents. The firearm maker posted revenue of $131.2 million in the period. Sturm Ruger shares have climbed slightly ...

President Donald Trump enthusiastically embraced the National Rifle Association on Friday, vowing not to tighten U.S. firearms laws despite suggesting after a Florida school shooting that he would take on the powerful gun-rights group. At the NRA's annual convention in Dallas, Trump called again for arming teachers and increasing school security to head off future mass shootings like the one in Parkland, Florida in February that killed 17 people. Such measures are supported by the NRA.
According to the FBI's National Instant Criminal Background Check System, firearm background checks improved 6.3% year over year in first-quarter 2018. This, in turn, is likely to boost sales of Sturm, Ruger (RGR).
Some groups are threatening to withhold votes for a Sturm Ruger director because they claim her presence on the board makes the gun maker too close to the National Rifle Association. The upcoming shareholder meeting will also be the first test of a shareholder proposal to have gun makers report on the risks to their reputations and finances. Proxy advisory services have recommended shareholders vote in favor of the board members but support the shareholder proposal, which the company's board recommends voting against.
What are the top 10 rifle manufacturers in 2018? Let’s find out. Although guns can be dangerous when in the wrong hands, they can be very useful when used correctly. Guns are used by the military everyday to defend the homeland. Many civilians use guns to defend themselves in case danger really presents itself. Many […]
Greg Wodack opened Elite Shooting Sports in Manassas, Va., in 2014. Greg Wodack likes a challenge – which is probably why, about eight years ago, he started trying to build the "coolest gun range in the world." Elite Shooting Sports' lobby glistens, from the polished floors to the giant script of the Second Amendment on the wall. You can also sign up for an eight-hour, $250 course that teaches you how to respond to an active shooter.
Shooting ranges, where tens of thousands of people work and millions go, still operate under outdated standards. Greg Wodack bent over a desk in Elite Shooting Sports, pointing at a multi-colored computer screen graphic showing air flowing throughout his gun range. Elite is one of the top ranges in the country, touted by the National Shooting Sports Foundation as a model.
Proxy adviser Institutional Shareholder Services on Wednesday recommended investors vote to support a shareholder proposal calling for gunmaker Sturm Ruger & Co to report on gun safety, which could put new attention on so-called "smart gun" technology. In a note to clients, ISS also backed the election of all director nominees at Sturm Ruger ahead of its shareholder meeting scheduled for May 9. The board of Connecticut company Sturm Ruger had recommended investors vote against the call for the safety report.
Not satisfied with the gun industry's response to demands for help ending an epidemic of gun violence, groups representing millions of workers are pressuring what they see as an even bigger change-maker.
