During the 30-minute program, Mission San Jose Dominican Sister Jeanne Harris, OP, outlines Sister Judy’s work to prevent gun violence through corporate responsibility campaigns with gun manufacturers. Most recently, Sister Judy led the efforts of 15 organizations in the Interfaith Center for Corporate Responsibility to persuade shareholders of Smith & Wesson to pass a resolution that the gun manufacturer adopt a comprehensive human rights policy in light of rising gun violence in the United States. They drew support from 43.9% of the shareholders - a much greater show of support than at earlier shareholder meetings.

This should easily lead to other gun manufacturers following suit., Rifle, shot guns (both non-modified) should be available for self protection and hunting. The problem is being caused by the automatic military guns being sold in the retail market and getting into the hands of power crazy sickos. Just eliminate the AR 15l’s and AK 47’s etc. from being sold to the open market period. They are for ilitsry use and should be protected for that use only. We are allowing these guns into the hands of people who continue to kill innocent men, women, and mostly children. Have we lost our minds as we continue to do nothing about these weapons of “mass destruction”! They kill masses. They are murdering it children and we’ve not done one damn thing to keep it fro happening over and over and over. Thus country has gone mad.
