Since I don't have my tin foil hat on yet, I don't like this, one bit. I have visions of Cerberus buying all the gun manufactuers and closing them down. I don't believe in putting all your "eggs in one basket"

Freedom group owns lots of gun companies and PARA USA was hurting for money after the PARA AR-15 did not sell well.

According to the NRA freedom group is very pro 2A .

I get a bit nervous with the eggs in one basket thing too.

another gun company to be taken apart by the Freedom Group

I agree. I am sure that it cost them some funds to move from Canada to the US, and there is the AR thing. However, I don't think it's ever a good idea for a big mega corporation to purchase a smaller company. It stifles competition, and as was also said. it often results in a company being scrapped because of "duplication". If I can help it, I will only purchase firearms from independent companies , e.g Mossberg, Savage, etc.

Actually the merger into a megacorp can help too. It makes a boycott against one particular brand have less effect on the whole.
