Default Who really owns Remington & DPMS



Advertise Here

So i was curious, and wanted to know who owns Remington Arms, turns out the same company that owns Remington owns DPMS among others. And then i did a little more research and found George Soros, owns these companys Why would a ANTI GUN activist want anything to do with firearms, is it so that he could pull the plug on all firearms all together . http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE59K4MC20091021 http://bulletin.accurateshooter.com/...arnes-bullets/ What could soros possably want with all the firearms manufactures?

Wow! That is some eye opening information. However if you consider the way the U.S. has had our industrial base gutted, it kind of makes sense that the progressives who are trying to chang the face of industrial, armed American society would purchase ang gut the arms industry. Or possibly be more open to allowing regulations placed on manufacure and distributions.

Or he knew that the very mention of a possible gun ban would incite panic buying yielding huge revenues. Let the panic die down and then bring up another possible ban to restart the panic. Maybe his anti-gun stance is a cover for greed.

Where did you find the connection to Soros? Do you have a source for that?

Thats alot of headlines stating that he owns or runs the funds or companies that own the firearms manufacturers, I suppose in a "supposedly capatilist society" theese thing can happen, we should of seen the possibilities or even probalities, what could "we the people do?"

I see no actual credible reference anywhere in any of those links that Soros has anything to do with Cerberus, let alone "owns" it.

Cerberus is the ultimate owner of Remington.
That is fact and easily documented.
OP is claiming that Soros owns Cerberus.

My understanding of what Soros does is that he heads up funds and financial vessels if you will and "owns" might mean he runs the investment funds or companies that own the physical assett, whatever that may be.

You know guys i've been thinkin about this...Since he is a BILLIONAIRE many times over it is possible that he himself does not even know about some of the companies his managers are purchasing....Either way it would be great to hope for a miracle that he donates a few million to the NRA.......

ya that would be nice, this is life and to think that a ANTI GUN billionare would not know or forget about one of the companies that he owns/runs/has money invested in would just be assnine.

Sorry, but he doesn't own that many corporations and any that his managers/vice presidents would buy would have to go through him, since it is his money...Rich people stay rich by knowing what they are getting involved in, if for nothing else then a liability issue.

If he is that much of an anti gun, hoplophobe, then I can assure you he would be having anything to do with guns at all and no there isn't any conspiracy of him suddenly closing everything down because he hates guns--not with the hundreds of millions involved and they would just be bought by someone else.

So what I trying to say, he doesn't own, nor would he own, or be involved with any company that is involved with his antithesis unless he wasn’t so much anti gun as anti pistol.
