New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli is indefinitely freezing investments by the public workers’ pension fund in firearms manufacturers and directed that the fund not buy any new stock in those companies.

The pension fund has about $2 million invested in Ruger and Sturm.  An outside manager sold the pension fund’s share of Smith and Wesson in December.
