Florida teachers call on state pension to sell gunmakers stakes

(Bloomberg) – The Florida Education Association is urging the state body that manages pension funds for its members to sell its holdings in companies that make a semi-automatic rifle used in the recent massacre at a high school in Parkland, Florida.

"Surely there are better places for the state to invest its public employee retirement money than in companies that make products that harm our children," said Joanne McCall, president of the association.
