Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

That's a 3 year old article.

The Freedom Group botched everything and went bankrupt. Everything was broken up in the bankruptcy auction. Marlin went to Ruger, Remington Arms went to another outfit, H&R was bought by Palmetto State Armory, Remington Ammunition Manufacturing was bought by the outfit that owns Federal and CCI, as some examples.

I believe they just moved the factory to Alabama.

If I could, I would........and the very FIRST thing I'd do, is move the company OUT of that Communist State!

Remington Ammunition has/had a ammo plant in Lonoke AR (IIRC). There's no reason they couldn't relocate their firearms manufacturing facilty down there.

They had a rough time getting sued over those 700 triggers.
