    "...In recent years, many top-selling brands — including the 195-year-old Remington Arms, as well as Bushmaster Firearms and DPMS, leading makers of military-style semiautomatics — have quietly passed into the hands of a single private company. It is called the Freedom Group — and it is the most powerful and mysterious force in the American commercial gun industry today.

    Never heard of it?

    You’re not alone. Even within gun circles, the Freedom Group is something of an enigma. Its rise has been so swift that it has become the subject of wild speculation and grassy-knoll conspiracy theories. In the realm of consumer rifles and shotguns — long guns, in the trade — it is unrivaled in its size and reach. By its own count, the Freedom Group sold 1.2 million long guns and 2.6 billion rounds of ammunition in the 12 months ended March 2010, the most recent year for which figures are publicly available..."

    Mr Skeet, what's the name of the trap club you claim has a "whites only" policy?

    Or did you just make that up?

    I don't get it. This article seems credible and does not come off as anti-gun. What's wrong with an equity investment group buying up gun companies to make money? As long as the quality of the product stays the same I don't see anything wrong with any of it. The executive director of the group is not anti-gun and this was backed up by the NRA. If the poster is an anti-gun troll, seems to me he posted the wrong article.

    It ain't the article. It's that the original poster is as phoney as a three dollar bill. With Obama's picture on it.
