    Sturm Ruger Will Track Gun Violence, After Shareholders Back 'Activist Resolution'

    Sturm Ruger, one of the largest gun-makers in the U.S., will track and report on gun violence involving its products, after its shareholders backed a proposal that the company's board had recommended not adopting.

    Ruger says that while it must now produce the gun violence report, the proposal — which it called a "shareholder's activist resolution" — cannot "force us to change our business."

    We have had a number of inquiries about whether we plan to discontinue sales to Dick's Sporting Goods. We do not sell to Dick's. Ruger utilizes a two-step distribution system in which we sell to independent, federally licensed distributors, who sell to independent, federally licensed retailers. Because the distributors are independent, we cannot control where they sell the products they acquire. However, we share your concerns about how Dick's is conducting itself and are disappointed by their recent actions. Given Dick's recent pronouncements, we expect it is safe to assume that you will not be seeing Ruger firearms in their stores.

    Thank you for your support!

    Best regards,

    Chris Killoy
    Ruger CEO
