Can anyone verify the following?

Date: Wed, 28 Sep 2011

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

Some of these companies are:

Bushmaster,
Marlin,
Remington,
DPMS,
Dakota Arms and
H&R.
DPMS Panther Arms
NEF
Dakota Arms
LC Smith
Parker
AAC
Barnes Bullets
EOTAC
INTC


Some people worry that Freedom Group is going to control most of the firearms companies in the United States . Of course, If you control the manufacturers you can decide not to sell to civilians, or, you can raise the prices to ridiculous levels or you can make the supply of guns and ammo scarce - all sorts of logjams.

What a perfect way to control America 's guns!

If you do some digging you will see that The Freedom Group is owned by a Wall Street investment company called "Cerberus Capital Management".

"Cerberus" in the epic book "The Inferno" by Dante Alighieri, is a three-headed demon hound (from Roman mythology) that guards the Gates of Hell to prevent those damned souls who have just crossed the river Styx , from escaping back to the world.

Investor GEORGE SOROS owns Cerberus!

@ehBeth,
If you follow the Snopes link, you'll see that the NRA asks members not to pass on this rumour.

n.b. Dan Quayle is a Cerberus executive.

Hopefully that makes you feel better.




(I have to wonder why a very successful capitalist investing in a company would be so frightening)

@farmerman,
Precisely.

He didn't come here to ask a question. He came here to spread a lie.
