I am writing regarding the News Brief "De Blasio: get pension funds out of gun makers."
Public Advocate Bill de Blasio has asked City Comptroller John Liu to take all pension plan money out of gun manufacturers. He appears to be particularly after The Freedom Group, which manufactured the weapon that was used in the Newtown shootings.
What Mr. de Blasio fails to realize is that The Freedom Group is a major provider of weapons for the U.S. military. If The Freedom Group is forced to cease operating and close its doors, as Mr. de Blasio wishes, who would provide weapons to our armed forces?
Oh, of course, China!
