Illinois` largest pension fund to re-evaluate gun company investments

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The managers of the largest pension fund in Illinois say they will review their investments to see if they have any money invested in gun manufacturers.

The review follows the deadly shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Connecticut.

The teacher's retirement system has a $37 billion portfolio and says it will review its investments to see if it needs to make any changes.

Many pension funds invest in gun manufacturers because they offer good returns.
