In the end, some manufacturers will go away and new ones will pop up. Tradition and traditional manufacturers are wonderful and I hope the best of them are around for a very long time. New ones, on the other hand, might be very exciting. Neither Sorros or anyone else can actually stop that.

The key is liberty and the truly free market.

Click here and Microsoft will send you a check for 842 bazillion dollars.





Good thing you deleted the trash you should have know was trash to begin with. Did you forward the trash filled e-mail to a few hundered people also? Maybe post it on facebook as well?

Then you use google as well, strike 2. :banghead:

Then you are the victim of fraudsters and your own gullibility. Those are owned by Freedom Group, which is owned by Cerberus, which Soros does not own. Cerberus is run and I think started by this guy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Feinberg.
Cerberus Capital Management - by way of "Freedom Group" - acquired Remington, Marlin Firearms, Bushmaster and DPMS (another maker of semiautomatic, military-style rifles) as well as Dakota Arms, a maker of high-end big-game rifles. It has also acquired several manufacturers of ammunition and tactical clothing. Feinberg himself is an avid hunter and motorcycle enthusiast. That ridiculous, left-wing commie clown Soros, has nothing to do with Cerberus, or any of Cerberus' holdings, thank God! Pax... :)

Self Fact-Checking is Dead

If I had a federal reserve note for every time someone posted some vague and unsubstantiated information they received in "an email from a friend," I would be slightly better off than I am today.

True or not, I am only limited, today, by the 'fatness' of my billfold where the purchase of arms and ammo is concerned....and the size of my arms safe, and ammo safe.

This brings to mind a valid follow-up question: Let's just say, hypothetically, that some liberal, anti-gun, gazillionaire like Soros DID start buying up gun manufacturers......

...what would be the likely outcome? What would he do with his newly owned businesses? What would be the most damaging action he could take?

After all, he just spent half a gazillion dollars.......My guess is, he would likely liquidate. How would this affect the gun industry? Liquidation would simply mean...selling the business. Wouldn't this simply transfer the manufacturing process to someone else, therefore, causing negligible damage to actual gun manufacturing? In order to damage the actual manufacturing process, he'd have to liquidate...AT A LOSS. He'd have to fire the employees, and eat the cost of everything else by selling it piecemeal. Sell the buildings to shopping cart manufacturers, and the equipment to......other gun manufacturers? Nope. Can't do that. This would boost their production volume/profits......He'd have to take a loss on the equipment by scrapping it in order to negatively affect gun manufacturing.....

...but then, competing manufacturers would have a HEYDAY!

I would sure as HECK feel tempted to start a business! After all, now that (Insert major manufacturer) is out of business = LESS COMPETITION!

Yup. I would imagine, if Remington is bought and liquidated....WINCHESTER WOULD LOVE IT! Their sales/production/profit would skyrocket! You wouldn't affect the market other than to make the last run of 870's COLLECTOR'S ITEMS! You couldn't afford the last Model 700 off the assembly line! It'd be worth a mint! Your Wingmaster would command TOP DOLLAR!

Not to mention, Winchester, Savage, FN would all profit from the loss. New manufacturers would start hedging on the Remington market by designing 870 knock-offs, and spins on the 1100. There'd be shoot-up fledgling manufacturers pop up overnight.

So, other than the loss of a wonderful product, (and Soros losing bazillions by having to stupidly waste money liquidating at a loss) how would an Anti-gunner buying up firearms manufacturers actually affect the industry?

Any ideas?

The outcome would probably be relatively inconsequential - UNLESS... a cabal of high rollers (such as Soros, Bloomberg, and moneyed anti-gun others who wish to decimate our Constitution and to destroy our country) pooled their rabid anti-gun financial resources, and mobilized their foot soldiers (like the "Brady Bunch"), buying up ALL firearms manufacturing facilities in the country, and then simply close them. (Personally, I would see it as borderline insanity to just throw billions of dollars away, but the anti-gun crowd IS "borderline insane", and I wouldn't put such an action past them.) Pax...

Or... these gun haters simple get "laws" passed to make the manufacture and use of all guns "illegal" by us peons.

Of course, then they'd get to deal with all of us who would not take kindly to that situation... and have been preparing for it.

Either way... they're going to lose.

Thank you for your plausible response. The previous posts by 'others' jumped the tracks in hypotheticals. It would be cheaper for them to push laws, than to purchase firearm businesses.

In which case I WOULD CELEBRATE! Woo-Hoo!

Because I am now going into the firearms manufacturing business!

With all the other competition bought out and closed, I will be running a multi-billion dollar company in no time (I'm now the only game in town! Thank you, George Soros!) I will soon become a firearms manufacturing POWERHOUSE! After all, since all the other competition has been decimated, I (and probably 1,000 others popping up out of the woodwork) will try to lead the charge to fill the void caused by lack of gun manufacturers! Guess who is now the top selling gun manufacturer in the world: Superlite Arms!

Bringing us back to the original problem.....

Wouldn't Soros then have to buy MY firearms manufacturing business, as well? Cool! I'll sell it for a cool $5,000,000,000! (Which he'll then have to close at a loss, too.)

In which case, MAC702 would probably want to get in on the game! Congratulations! MAC702 Arms Manufacturing is now the top grossing firearms manufacturer in the world! Wouldn't you love Gorge Soros to offer you $6,000,000,000 for it? Are you going to sell? Why not? It will just lead to someone else getting into the firearms manufacturing business.

Now that 500 NEW firearms manufacturers have popped up like mushrooms to take advantage of the dead competition.......

He'll have to buy those,as well.....losing even more money when he closes.

So, since there's a void....MORE new firearm manufacturing businesses will spring up. (Is he going to buy those and sell at a loss, too? When does it end? Oh! When he inevitably GOES BROKE!)

How does this affect the industry other than making your 870 a collector's item?

How does anti-gunners forming a cabal and buying all gun manufacturers lead to the end of firearms? I agree with the above posts: It doesn't. It can't.

Anti-gun legislation and laws are the animals we have to hunt. Anti's buying gun manufacturers = So what? It's hypothetical anyway. Even if it wasn't = no big deal. Those concerned are worried about the sky falling. Buying and selling of companies is a smoke screen. It's the legislation that has an effect.
