    Marlin Closing Its Doors: Can this be true?

    Can this be true I saw the "Marlin Suspends Production" thread in this rant forum and considered posting this on that thread, but this seems to take the discussion in an entirely different direction. I have not researched this, and I do not know if it is accurate (but I doubt it). I do know that Cereberus is selling its Freedom Group holdings, but I am not sure of all the other points presented here. I am posting this here to see if any MO members have more information about this.


    MARLIN FIREARMS CLOSING ITS DOORS
    Even if you do not own a gun you need to know this.
    checked this out on "Truth or Fiction" who verified it. I trust them more than snopes.

    Marlin Firearms is already closing its doors! They are doing it to us, America ! This needs to be spread to all gun owners and sportsmen/women. We cannot rely on the media to inform us of these types of matters.

    Something You May Not Know That Is Happening ... Who is buying companies, manufacturing guns 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, Obama's chief financier!! He 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. (Soros also owns Progressive Insurance). If you don't know who George Soros is, you need to do some Research. He the communist that backed Obama with millions of dollars and Obama is a puppet on a string controlled by Soros. Soros wants to own all of us so we can be his subjects and Obama is helping him.

    Send this to every gun owner you know!

    George Soros link = debunked.

    Cerberus IS selling Freedom Group, Taurus is the only one expressing interest in bidding as far as I'm aware.

    Marlin shut it's (CT) doors years ago....and moved to Ilion NY (Remington factory).

    Plus, there are also still many entrepuneurs in this country. If companies stopped selling products that the pulblic demanded, some smart person would start a new company doing just that and make a lot of money! Maybe we should start an ammunition manufacturing company

    From the NRA ILA:
    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.
    NRA has had contact with officials from Cerberus and Freedom Group for some time. The owners and investors involved are strong supporters of the Second Amendment and are avid hunters and shooters. In reality, at no time has George Soros ever been a part of the ownership group of Freedom Group or Cerberus, and as a privately-traded corporation, there is no possibility that he will be in the future.
    This unsubstantiated rumor has caused a great deal of unnecessary concern for gun owners. NRA-ILA urges our members to take great care before repeating baseless rumors[.]



    But I think George is still someone to keep an eye on. By the time you think he is doing something it will already be done.

    With the 'reputation' and quality problems of Remlin, how could it not be true? You can only lose money for so long. Investors will not stand for losses too long.

    Marlin in 2010 took positive action ref closing and laying some folks. Google it for yourself. Found no new mention of any other action. Like they say,"just the facts,folks."
    The best part of the hunt is not the harvest but in the experience.
