    Which Company sells you your guns, and how much longer will you be able to buy any gun from them? This is NOT some Øbama plot, but it is just as real:
    Ever heard of George Soros??
    http://bulletin.accurateshooter.com/...arnes-bullets/
    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 new guns to civilians. What a perfect way to restrict our access to guns.
    Now if you do some digging you will see that "The Freedom Group" is owned by a company called Cerberus Capital Management. Well, guess who controls Cerberus?

    GEORGE SOROS -- One of the most evil men on this planet, who by using deception and manipulation of our free-market capitalism system, would try to eliminate your unalienable 2nd Amendment Right.

    Please pass this on to all your freedom loving friends. This needs to come out.

    Why have we not heard about this in the "lame-stream" media?

    If you believe in Capitalism, then you also have to believe it is Soros' right to do this (as long as he's not breaking the law), as unfortunate as it would likely be.

    Just hope he doesn't get control of the whole industry.

    Don't sweat it. Close down every gun maker in the world and new ones will spring up; its called supply and demand. Even Soros, especially Soros, is not that stupid.

    Of more interest is the sheer hypocrisy of the connections.

    I think you forgot the "FW:FW:FW:FW:FW:FW:FW" from the beginning of your post title. ;)

    Clicking on the link gives me a 404 error.

    Do you have actual proof that Soros owns Cerberus?

    If so, please post it.

    I agree, please post anything you have on this. I find it hard to believe (not impossible though) that G. Soros would be hanging out with these guys.

    You realize it would be financial suicide to stop selling to civilians, right? These companies have all this equipment and facilities that could never be fully utilized by government contracts.

    I wish folks would vet this stuff before posting. Soros does not own Cerebus.

    Stephen Feinberg runs Cerebus: He's a co-founder of the company. Former VP Dan Quayle runs one of the Cerebus companies. Former Sec Def Rumsfeld has a relationship with the company. John Snow runs one of the Cerebus companies.

    BTW: Here is the article from accurateshooter. Nothing about Soros.

    Most likely because it's not true.

    I got a good chuckle out of the OP: as an auto industry journalist, I follow Chrysler, which was formerly owned (and nearly destroyed) by Cerberus. It would hard to find anyone more completely opposite to George Soros than Stephen Feinberg.

    OTOH, Cerberus does have a track record of squeezing every last penny out of their investments, both by cheapening product and by getting rid of expensive (i.e., experienced or talented) personnel.

    The solution, then, is to find someone who does not.

    Regurgitating BS that was gobble up like a starving rat because it fits your prejudice makes all 2A advocates look stupid. At least fact check before endlessly forward emails, blogs and "articles". :banghead:

    The "boogeyman" does not own Cerberus. :rolleyes:
