Summary of the eRumor:
A warning that says George Soros controls
Cerberus Capital Management, the parent company of the Freedom Group,
which is a group of American gun and ammunition manufacturers. This
rumor says that Mr. Soros has an evil plan to restrict or ban all
civilians from obtaining firearms.
A company spokesperson with
Cerberus Capital told TruthOrFiction.com that they have no affiliation
with George Soros.
The Freedom Group is a branch of Cerberus Capital that, according to
their web site, provides
"firearms, ammunition and related products to a diverse set of global
customers and markets." Among their brands are
Remington®, Bushmaster® Firearms, DPMS/Panther Arms™, Marlin®, H&R®, The
Parker Gun™, EOTAC™, Mountain Khakis®, Advanced Armament Corp. ®, Dakota
Arms® and Barnes® Bullets.
There was also an October 12, 2011 article in Field and Stream debunking
the "evil plan of George Soros" and his alleged ties with Cerberus
Capital. The author, David E. Petzal,
examined the list of board members on the
site and reported that, "George Soros is nowhere listed on the
company’s roster of officers, as is required by law."

Among the board members at Cerberus Capital are former Republican Vice President
Dan Quale and George W. Bush's former Secretary of Treasury
John W. Snow.
For the last several years a company
called The Freedom Group has been buying up gun and ammunition
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 !!!!!!!!! One of
the most evil men on this planet who wants to restrict or ban all
civilian guns. Please pass this on to all your freedom loving friends.
This needs to come
out. Why have we not heard about this in the "mainstream" media? I would
think this would be BIG news......
