George Soros' Evil Plan of Buying Up American Gun and Ammunition Companies- Fiction!

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.
 

The Truth:  
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 Cerberus web site and reported that, "George Soros is nowhere listed on the company’s roster of officers, as is required by law."   Click for Field and Stream article.

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.

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:

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 !!!!!!!!! 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......
