#BurkaBoys Protest BlackRock Investment Over Gun Profits

Move over, beekeepers, you’ve got competition from the #BurkaBoys.


Chanting “gun money’s blood money,” a group of gun control advocates took to the streets Tuesday to rail against BlackRock, the investment management giant which, critics say, holds shares in at least two gun companies.

The protesters began in Midtown at the Omni Berkshire Hotel, where Smith & Wesson’s top executive participated in a “2016 Best Ideas Conference” hosted by another investment firm.

From there, they headed to BlackRock headquarters one block away.

The global company was targeted by the group, Gays Against Guns, because it holds shares in Sturm Ruger & Co. and Smith & Wesson.

Just like Moms Demand Action doesn’t speak for all moms, don’t assume that GAG speaks for all gays. There’s Pink Pistols and plenty of “Gun-toting gay people.
