Hogg survived the shooting at a Florida high school in February that left 17 people dead.

BlackRock is the largest institutional shareholder of gun maker Sturm Ruger & Co. and the second-largest investor of Vista Outdoor and Smith & Wesson parent American Outdoor Brands, according to Morningstar data.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham has lost advertisers, but she's gained ratings: Last week she earned her best ever. As a result, some of the network's advertisers had ended deals with "The Ingraham Angle".

On April 5, BlackRock said that it would start offering gun-free retirement funds for investors looking to avoid owning a stake in those companies. The fund manager has also said it is in active conversations with gun makers about their businesses. Investors can also put their money in a Vanguard social fund that excludes gunmakers.

"Vanguard shares many individuals' concerns about public safety and firearm access and hopes that policymakers take appropriate action to protect Americans from gun violence".

And in another, he took a picture of a chart what seems to be five investment companies with share numbers held and the value of those shares - presumably in "gun manufacturers", though the chart does not specify.

She said Vanguard is meeting with gun manufacturers and distributors to discuss how they'll "mitigate the risks that their products pose and how they plan to help prevent such tragedies from happening again".

Parkland survivor David Hogg has calls for a boycott of two major investment companies for including gun manufacturers in their funds.

In a series of tweets Tuesday afternoon, Mr. Hogg sicced his 764,000 Twitter followers on five investment companies, singling out two most of all - Blackrock and Vanguard Group.

Hogg filmed students hiding from the gunman during the massacre and rose to prominence after giving an emotional speech at the March For Our Lives rally in Washington DC on March 24.
