Arms are for Hugging
are for Hugging Campaign
In the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre, we have called for a ban
on assault weapons and for background checks on all guns including
those sold at gun shows.
We need a comprehensive plan to address weapons in our communities

Unload Your 401K: Activists Launch Campaign to Defund Gun Makers
- CODEPINK has joined with a new front in the fight against gun violence:
divestment. A coalition of more than twenty well-known national organizations,
led by Campaign to Unload and States United to Prevent Gun Violence,
have launched a new hard-hitting campaign to defund gun manufacturers:
401K.” You might be invested in gun companies and not even
realize it. "Unload Your 401K" features a new tactic, divestment
of stock in gun companies, and a new tool to empower the public to take
action. UnloadYour401k.com will empower people upset with gun violence
to stop financially supporting guns. The campaign will target Sturm
Ruger (RGR), Smith & Wesson (SWHC), and Olin (OLN). Nearly half
the value of these three companies comes from mutual funds.
