Mystery company buying up U.S. gun manufacturers

> Who is buying companies, manufacturing guns ?????

> For the last several years a company called The Freedom Group has been buying up gun and ammunition manufacturers.

>Some of the companies are Bushmaster, Marlin, Remington, DPMS, Dakota Arms and H&R.

>Some people worry that this Freedom Group is going to control most of the firearms companies in the United States. If you control the manufacturers you can decide to stop selling to civilians. What a perfect way to control guns.

> Now if you do some digging you will see that The Freedom Group is owned by a company called Cerberus Capital Management.

> Guess who controls Cerberus??? GEORGE SOROS !!!!!!!!! who wants to restrict or ban all civilian guns.

Founded in 1992, Cerberus is named for the mythological three-headed dog that guarded the gates of Hades.Firearms — Acquired Bushmaster Firearms, Inc., from Windham, Maine native Dick Dyke for an undisclosed sum in April 2006, and purchased Remington Arms in April 2007. Under Cerberus direction, Bushmaster Firearms acquired Cobb Manufacturing, a well-respected manufacturer of large-caliber tactical rifles in August 2007. Cerberus also acquired DPMS Panther Arms December 14, 2007.[29][30] Remington Arms acquired Marlin Firearms in January 2008.[31][32] In October 2009, Remington Military products acquired silencer manufacturer Advanced Armament Corporation. These companies were combined into the Freedom Group.
Freedom Group is an American firearms manufacturer holding company which has acquired notable brands such as Bushmaster, DPMS, and Remington Arms.[3]

The Freedom Group has been causing many in weaponry circles to scratch their heads, and it has been the focus of a few conspiracy theories. Some allege that it is a clever gun-grabbing ploy, or that a foreign enemy is quietly undermining the US gun industry. Some claim George Soros is behind it all.

The Freedom Group appears not to be backed by Soros, but by Stephen Feinberg, the chief executive of Cerberus Capital Management. Cerberus is a huge but little-known private investment company that acquired Chrysler in 2007. It's name, "Cerebus," is often the source of uneasy joking in certain financial circles, for this is the name of the three-headed Hound of Hell in Greek mythology that stands at the gates of Hades. But hey, tha's neither here nor there...right?

Freedom Group is owned by Cerberus Capital Management, a private equity investment firm.

That may be why the Taliban have a clear preference for IEDs.
