I guess all the Hillary panic fueled the market.

"American gun manufacturers made more than 11 million firearms in 2016 the most ever recorded, federal statistics indicate.

The Annual Firearms Manufacturing and Export Report compiled last month shows gun makers distributed 11,497,441 firearms into the commercial market that year, including 4.7 million handguns and 4.2 million rifles."

LOL, and Commiefornia is trying to say people are buying less firearms and its just a small demographic ( another lie). I did hear Remington is in deep shit thou. Maybe if they brought back some quality control in their 700s and 870s, they would be good to go

Crap, you already posted about remington. Guess i need to pay attention.

Who is "Freedom Group" that group sounds familar, I found this link online, but i dont know if its true. here is just an piece of it

From https://www.snopes.com/politics/guns/freedom.asp

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!!!!!!!!! One of the most evil men on this planet who wants to restrict or ban all civilian guns.

That was debunked.

In the link you provided: "However, there is no connection between Cerberus Capital Management and financier George Soros: Cerberus is a privately traded company which was established in 1992 by Stephen A. Feinberg, and the company’s list of senior executives does not include George Soros in any capacity (but does include such conservative notables as former Republican Vice-President Dan Quayle and former Treasury Secretary John W. Snow)."

And by the NRA: "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 found on the Internet."
