By Ezequiel Minaya Mar 27, 2018 6:30 am ET 1 COMMENTS The U.S. corporate tax overhaul has helped make corporate bonds more competitive with municipal issuance said the finance chief of payroll processor Paychex, Inc. The Rochester, N.Y.-based company has a roughly $5 billion investment portfolio that has traditionally been heavily weighted toward municipal bonds, said Chief Financial Officer Efrain Rivera. Munis, as they’re commonly known, typically pay a lower rate of return than corporate bonds, but that income is treated as tax-free.

In the last week, liberal corporations and anti-gun interests have launched a new salvo in the gun control battle. But this time they are not merely advocating gun control policies or limiting the sale of firearms in certain stores. Instead, they are attacking America’s gun culture itself. By gun culture, I mean the culture that appreciates the value of firearms, promotes the lawful use of firearms, and respects the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Two different developments have occurred.First, the Kroger retail giant announced that it was removing from its stores any magazines or publications that feature “assault rifles.” Kroger wasn’t specific about which magazines would go, but that could potentially remove everything from Guns & Ammo to Outdoor Life. Kroger owns nearly 3,000 supermarkets and retail stores including Kroger, Dillon’s, Fred Meyer’s and Harris Teeter.
