Remington’s Moral Lapse…

Perhaps I harbor a naïve belief that companies can be a force for good. I hope that you can be socially responsible and profitable and avoid selling your soul.
Obviously, there are PLENTY of examples to the contrary, so that’s not news, but when you see something as egregious as potential compromises of morality when it relates to manufacturing and selling of guns…man, that just puts you to the test.
I watched this CNBC documentary called “Remington Under Fire” which alleges that the rifle manufacturer knew about a defect in its most popular model as early as 1948.
5 million guns sold later and there are numerous claims of accidental firings resulting in injury and death.
Just sad.
