Again?

Don't believe everything you hear. Specifically at your local gun store.

This just came up about a week ago and Kestryl (Moderator) produced a link debunking the rumor. Try using the search button.

Cerberus Group owns about 95% of Freedom Group

The rumor was that George Soros wielded control of Cerberus, but doesnt seem to be true. Looks like a straight up business deal.

No truth to a Soros connection.

Recently, an old rumor regarding Cerberus--the private equity firm that owns Freedom group, a holding company that in turn owns a number of firearms manufacturers, including Remington, Marlin, Bushmaster, and DPMS--was in some way tied to George Soros.

This rumor is completely false and baseless.
