Disarm Your Mutual Funds

2-19GoodbyeGunstocks.jpg

Your DGB for today is to check your mutual funds (should you own any) for their investment in gun manufacturing. 

Simply enter the name of the fund or its ticker symbol, and the site will tell you how many stocks in that fund are gun-related, and what percentage of the fund they comprise. A link to the fund’s SEC filings will tell you even more. Go a step further and enter the amount of money you have invested in the fund, and the site will calculate how much of your money is invested in gun or ammo manufacturing. Armed with this data, you can make an informed decision about how and where to invest your family’s dough.

This country’s sick obsession with guns has got to stop, and we must address it from every angle. Those of us in a position to do so need to invest wisely and ethically.
