The gun industry is a mess and someones trying to profit from organizing it - These companies are all competing against each other with essentially the same products in a market that two years ago exploded with the thought obama would take them all away.

There are numerous other firearms manufacturers that have continued to grow and have been born such as windham weaponry from the ashes of the laid off bushmaster staff when they moved production to Remys plant in NY.

Nothing to see here.

Nice find. This is getting creepy, now the stumps (criminals... useless as a tree stump) are going to up the anti on equipment they carry. These nice toys are going to trickle into the black market. Just like they did here in Canada, Hells Angels running around with military grade explosives and weapons. Game on!

I see a 3 step process taking place. First buy up all the US gun factories. Then ban all gun imports. Then the super gun company stops all non-government sales (the governmnet would really be the one who owns the gun company) The gun supply in the US dries up. It is the long way around but it would get them what they want.

Do you have any idea how many guns are already out there?

Limiting production would solve nothing. Plus with the new high tech C&C machines just about anyone can make any gun from scratch.

You can buy plans just like dress patterns for most guns.

I am sorry if this was posted already but I will throw my 2 cents in the hat for your consideration. 1ST. Inside intell says there is some serious money to be made in the cornering of the gun market. 2ND. Get your private investors onboard ( Think WWII ). 3RD. Start stirring thie Middle East kettle and apply the heat needed to bring it to a boil. And you have a possable answer. It called WAR people and IMO its just around the corner.

Interesting theory, but please keep in mind that although this company does have several firearms manufacturers, there are still soooo many other gun makers out there that if they did indeed attempt to price gouge, they would simply lose all their business.

If you cant afford a fancy DPMS AR style platform rifle, do what I did and buy a lower receiver for around $100 and build your own. I like del-ton.com for their rifle kits. I built mine for less than $700 and its exactly to my specs.

Or if you have a spare $600 laying around just go by a Glock. I'd like to see Cerebus try and buy up the Austrians!

This is very possible, they've been sabre rattling over Iran and are calling troops home from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Plus the Pentagon is facing some serious budget cuts, they'd go to war to protect their budget, I'm sure of that.

Eh, I'm just not seeing the conspiracy.

Like I said - manufacturers tend to condense after a time. Rather than closing down, you sell to someone willing to make a bid on your business (depending upon how you are set up - it may simply be a vote of share-holders).

Large companies and firms are always accused of many things - sometimes justifiably, sometimes not. I'm not too impressed by the typical "blood sucking corporate" argument. People don't understand that most of the # they complain about someone making a profit on only comes with a 3% profit margin on it (they make 3 cents off of every dollar). Then you all talk about your drinking buddies or talk about games - all of which run about a 30-40% profit margin (what you pay them, they basically pocket more than 1/3 of it).

So, again, I'm not really seeing the conspiracy in the gun market (but those drinking are getting raped).

As has already been pointed out - 50% of Americans already own a registered firearm. There are countless others floating around, unowned and/or unknown. Further - the "PTB" will have difficulty finding the mythical army that will come through and attempt to pacify everyone.

I don't see much cause for concern.

Plus - I intend to start up an arms manufacturer some day and create far superior weaponry and aircraft (I might let someone design ground vehicles if they enjoy it) than anything government funding will develop.


Aim,

It's too bad that I couldn't give you two stars. Even more interesting that other folks would rather sit around and and burbalate (my word...) over the nasty demonic conspiracy than take an honest look at what is going on and how it's doing, and why. However, this is a conspiracy forum so I guess it's to be expected.


Just thought you ought to know that someone thinks you're sane. LOL!

Yup, a friend of mine sent me an e-mail aboutt his earlier this year. There are laws against becoming a monopoly in this country of the USA but there aren't any in the coutry of the U.S. This is how they get around it, your zip code and use of the postal "service" instead of the Post Office, and there is a very big distinction, makes your home federal territory and YOU a federal employee subject to federal income taxes. THAT IS how it works, it has been documented by many people who have investigated the fraud and how we were duped. THIS is how they will attain gun control. No more guns for sale, they will buy up all the companies and destroy the equipment or move it overseas so only the militaries have weapons. That is why there are those gun builder shows on cable, some people have figured out what is going on and are making their own weapons.

Exactly right. And for those who think there are a lot of guns already out there, sure there is, but kids today are not interested in hunting as much as 30 years ago and would not hesitate to turn the guns over, when given them by the mothers and fathers. Video games and sex and hollywood are all contributors to the crap society we live in and it is going to get much worse each generation forgets the suffering of the last and the struggles.

Sad world we live in, keep your head up and your eyes open and educate the kids that the government IS the only enemy. Albert J.Nock's book, "Our Enemy the State" should be mandatory reading for ALL Americans!!

Monopoly in gun manufacturing???

Any good machine shop can build guns and as the price goes up and other manufacturing goes over seas many small machine shops are doing aftermarket gun parts between larger contracts.

I am trained as a machinist and i do gunsmithing for fun and to build my own collection.

There will never be a real monopoly in gun manufacturing.

If you look at the list of companies bought up about half started a garage shops and built up to the point that the owners were bought out at a nice profit.

Also gun repair and gunsmithing is one trade that can not be sent off shore.


Mother of Gawd (And I'm neither Irish, nor Catholic)... Another person making sense without having to resort to a major conspiracy by the Right of the Left Politicians, neither of which have sense enough to pound sand in a rat hole.

We have a couple of Left leaners in this thread who just have to be vitriolic with the Right leaners, because it's the only way they know how to be... Nasty with or without cause. We have some Right leaners here against the Left leaners, just because Right always has to be "versus" Left.

It would be reaaalll interesting if some of these wonderful folks really got a handle on finances, and the human condition. They could, perhaps, become the kind of people that they envy and claim to hate... Get off their key boards and do something that isn't involved with yelling about Left or Right, or the Conspiracy to get the last can of beans.

Anyway, if you get around to reading this... Thanks for trying to be intelligent in your thinking.

Wow, this is very interesting info.

www.businessinsider.com...


1033 was passed by Congress in 1997 to help law-enforcement fight terrorism and drugs, but despite a 40 year low in violent crime, police are snapping up hardware like never before. While this years staggering take topped the charts, next years orders are up 400 percent over the same period.


Now we know where to go should we need a large amount of guns and amo.

Here is another tidbit.


While this year's staggering take topped the charts, next year's orders are up 400 percent over the same period.

How are these supposedly broke cities and states affording weapons they don't need, even at discount prices?

Actually when i read this story i could not hold back thinking of the hidden agenda. I agree of two possible reasons 1 is the good guys dismantling many weapons (wishful thinking) more like the bad guys are taking out the industry to dis arm the USA. In Australia we have been disarmed for some time, we had the buy back scheme a few years ago where our governement pays money to hand in your guns. No semi auto is allowed in Australia as well and offcourse no Full auto or machine guns other than military and police. We wish we could buy good guns here but we cant. To be honest i think Australia is a worse Illuminati run place than the US. Think about even the carbon tax passed through here first.

If you'd ask me is has all to do with the instalment of the NWO. The centralisation of companies, organisations that need easily control and oversight. The policy and monopoly in one hand.....better for the world they say.

Here is what Wiki's page about him says:


Steve and Gisela Feinberg are prolific donors to the Republican Party and related organizations. Former Republican Vice President of the United States Dan Quayle works for Cerberus as Chairman of Global Investments, and former United States Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was a client.

Yeah sure, on TV these clown people are tilted wing flockers..

Seeing as how the DC mafia loves to play sheep like suckers, I see it differently. The right wing of the mafia knew in advance, just like they all planned via divisive propaganda.. placing that guy who calls himself president in office would spark gun sales. Push sheep towards guns, make money.

Which goes towards the bigger picture.. more people with guns increases the likeliness some irresponsible dipcrap who just lost his job, house, wife.. before suffering the ultimate losses of his dog & truck.. will get drunk, devolve into a budweiser courage sponsored fit of rage no stoner would experience, and do something violently stupid "with an assault weapon".

Which gives them, our infamous PTB shadowy overlords, justification to take back the guns they just sold you.. else ye be a domestic terrorist, grrrr... not worthy of due process... by law!! Kinda like the houses / condos they sold, then took back.
