Editorial: Cigarettes. Drunken driving. Next: Guns?

To most people, a drunken driver is a public menace to be jailed, not a mistake-prone tippler to be tolerated. There’s a stigma attached to DUI and cigarette smoking. Americans resent the preventable deaths they cause. Will Americans now decide that minimizing gun deaths should come next?

To most people, a drunken driver is a public menace to be jailed, not a mistake-prone tippler to be tolerated. There’s a stigma attached to DUI and cigarette smoking. Americans resent the preventable deaths they cause. Will Americans now decide that minimizing gun deaths should come next?

Gun control activism is risk to bottom line, gun maker says

The maker of Smith & Wesson firearms said gun control activism poses a risk to its business, according to a company filing.

American Outdoor Brand Corp., which on Wednesday reported a 25 percent decline in fiscal fourth-quarter revenue compared with last year, listed the "actions of social activists" as a risk factor in its annual report.

Shares fell as much as 12 percent Thursday in New York, the most intraday in six months, and were down 4.6% to $12.62 at 12:13 p.m. Rival gunmaker Sturm Ruger & Co. fell 4.8 percent to $57.45.

    Cigarettes. Drunken driving. Next: Guns?
    One of the greatest public health triumphs of the last century impressively still gains momentum: Millions of Americans have quit smoking - and more will follow. Smoking among adults hit a record low in 2017 - to about 14 percent from nearly 16 percent a year earlier.

  • Sorry, one of the highest gun violent city’s. I am not here to argue with anyone. I am just saying we have bigger issues to tackle then worrying about law abiding citizens. That’s all. Have a good week everyone.

  • To J Sebek, No, I will not stop worrying about the inner city. All that garbage is moving our way, slowly but surely. You can't just bury your head in the sand and pretend that it does not effect you.
