Anita Britt: Resign from the Smith & Wesson Board of Directors

Anita Britt is on the board of directors of American Outdoor Brands, the parent company of Smith & Wesson, which makes AR-15 style rifles including the one used to kill 17 people at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14th, 2018. Ms. Britt, we urge you to please resign from the American Outdoor Brands board!

Why is this important?

Anita Britt is a member of the South Florida community and serves on the Board of Trustees of St. Thomas University in Miami Gardens. She is an alumna of Penn State University. She joined the American Outdoor Brands board on February 6, 2018, just eight days before the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School. Ms. Britt, we know this is not what you signed up for! As members of these communities, and the greater public, we urge you to end your association with a company that profits from making and selling the AR-15 style rifles used in numerous school shootings and mass shootings across America!


Reasons for signing

  • Please resign and do right by the peopl
  • AR-15 maim and kill human beings. Please do the right thing.
  • Downright disgusting to have Ms Britt in the board of a gun manufacturer in a Catholic. School. Fire her
