Buy gun makers; commit financial suicide - for the children...

Web page: http://www.cnn.com/2012/12/27/opinio...html?hpt=hp_c1

Summary:
First, Michael Bloomberg, George Soros, David Geffen and the like should establish a nonprofit SPAC (Special-Purpose-Acquisition-Company) called BidForFreedom.org (BFF)...

They should appoint George Clooney, Angelina Jolie and Matt Damon to the fundraising committee ...

...BFF will probably need to start with at least $250 million in cash and commitments (no problem given the billionaire status of the sponsors) ....

Second, BFF should lobby all public pension funds ... to roll their investment into BFF ... naming and shaming any unwilling public investors.

Third, BFF should pay "whatever it takes" to acquire control of the Freedom Group...
(i) Appoints a high-profile CEO with impeccable credentials as a hunter and/or marksman who is nevertheless in favor of gun-control.

(ii) Elects a new board of directors including representatives from the families of victims killed in Newtown...

(iii) Operates the business as if sensible gun laws were in place
discontinuing sales of the most egregious assault weapons ...
offering to buy back all Freedom Group assault weapons ...
micro-stamping weapons ...
(iv) Voluntarily waives its rights to support the NRA and other lobbying groups.
(v) Creates a fund to compensate those who, despite its best efforts, are killed or wounded by its weapons.
(vi) Agrees that if the effort to provide moral leadership in the weapons industry doesn't succeed within a year, BFF should consider corporate euthanasia....

Is Obama going to bail this failing business out too, when it comes to that ?

Let 'em waste their money on a stupid scheme like that. They can shut down Remington, Bushmaster, etc. if they like. Other companies will spring up elsewhere to fill the demand. Net result: some fine people lose their jobs, some liberal idiots lose a bunch of money, and the weapons we want to buy will still be available.

I couldn't believe it when I read that piece this morning prominently displayed on the front page of the CNN website. Of all the misguided opinion columns and inaccurate news stories recently, this one takes the cake. This fool doesn't have a clue about how guns or capitalism work.
