The 74 year old chairman James Joseph Minder notified Smith & Wessonís board members of the revelation and itís accuracy Wednesday and simultaneously offered his resignation, but the board declined to accept it.
According to some sources Minder stated ďAs long as itís their pleasure, Iíll stayĒ. Quite frankly Iíve done nothing wrongĒ.
