And again you post, proving your ignorance. Being "raised around" guns proves nothing, and adds to the stupidity of your statements. You addressed none of what I said. It is not a "high-powered" rifle. It is in the .22 caliber category (.223). Most rifles are larger and more high powered. They are used for small game hunting and target, because of that fact, that are a smaller caliber. Cheaper ammo…

Who are you to decide what is necessary? That's a bogus argument as these are not the same weapons and this is about ammo. 30-06 or 223 tell me which is more lethal?

Say WHO? You? Fortunately, the Constitution says differently. Just because you want to give up your rights doesn't mean the rest of us have too. If you don't want to own one of these guns don't buy it.

It's super-convenient that right after the DOT releases a report warning about train derailments, a train derails. Life sure is funny.

Men's Wearhouse raises offer for Jos. A. Bank

1 year ago from Chicago Tribune

From from Chicago Tribune:

Men's Wearhouse Inc. raised its offer for Jos. A. Bank Clothiers Inc. by more than 10 percent, nearly two weeks after its smaller rival looked to fend off the unsolicited bid by agreeing to acquire Eddie Bauer.

Men's Wearhouse raised its cash tender offer to Jos. A. Bank shareholders to $63.50 per share, from $57.50, and added it could increase the offer to $65.00 if it was able to conduct limited due diligence.

Jos. A. Bank shares rose as much as 13.4 percent to $62.45 in premarket trading, while Men's Wearhouse stock rose as much as 7.7 percent to $48.59.

Men's Wearhouse said the amended offer is conditional on the termination of Jos. A. Bank's agreement to acquire outdoor clothing retailer Eddie Bauer.

Men's Wearhouse also said it had filed a lawsuit in the Delaware Chancery Court alleging that the Jos. A. Bank board breached its fiduciary duties to shareholders by adopting measures to “thwart” Men's Wearhouse's tender offer.

Under the lawsuit, Men's Wearhouse said it seeks to prevent Jos. A. Bank from proceeding with the Eddie Bauer acquisition and wants the Jos. A. Bank board to revoke its poison pill.

Jos. A. Bank was not immediately available for comment.
