April 13, 2018 | The tragic school shooting in Parkland, Florida placed a renewed focus on the gun industry. While many pointed their criticism - and rightly so - at the NRA and the gun lobby’s bought-off politicians, we also thought it was important to look at the key profiteers - the banks, hedge funds, asset managers, and top executives - who hold a lot of power within the gun industry.

To this end, we put together a series that surveys the main gun profiteers, takes a closer look at gun retailer Bass Pro-Cabela’s and its backing from Goldman Sachs, and examines Wells Fargo’s major ties to the NRA and firearms industry.

Some of these articles also appeared in the Public and Truthout, while the focus on Wells Fargo even found its way onto MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews.
