Default Drums and Guns

I loved the bumpersticker: Drums not guns. But, I found on bongomania.com the following:

Most percussion instruments we find in music shops in the US and Europe were manufactured in a factory in Thailand. Some of the different brands are actually made in the same factory. Furthermore, the Kaman corporation now owns LP, CP, World Beat, Matador, Toca, and Gibraltar, so really some of our so-called choices just fatten one big corporate pocket. Many people don't realize that Kaman also manufactures parts for missiles, bombs, and other military equipment. They are proud of their military business.http://www.bongomania.com/eng/articles/selecting.html

I wonder if this is still true. Does it matter to you?
