There are 5 comments on Student’s Petition Asks BU to Divest from Gun Manufacturers

  1. Excellent initiative!

    I note that the petition at present only seeks BU students to sign. Many faculty and staff members would no doubt sign up if asked. Perhaps a modified version could be launched.

    Everyone needs to remember that the successful campaign asking BU to divest from fossil fuel companies embraced the entire BU community, not just students.

    1. As a former student at Sandy Hook Elementary School and a current BU Staff Member, I would sign this petition if it were open to the rest of the community (although, I do hope to also be a student in the Fall, so I could sign it then!). I recently contacted my financial advisor to ensure that my IRA holdings were also not invested in any consumer firearms companies.
