Do you see the puppet strings?
The plot to disarm Americans and suspend the 2nd Amendment is working with furious pace. But it is anything but head on.
The 2nd Amendment makes gun ownership an inalienable right and guarantees armed and formidable populace. The NRA and other lobbies have gun rights firmly entrenched in the Republican party.
So the other side works the back door. Infiltration, sabotage and other dirty tricks.
Is that what is happening?
By all appearances, Soros, the elite wolf in sheep’s clothing has been investing in firearms companies not to profit from them, but to destroy them, and destroy the access of people to guns and ammunition.
Via the International Business Times:
Advocates for divesting from the firearms industry got a boost from Wall Street titan George Soros last week. The billionaire investor is in a strong position to make such a call: He’s one of the leading financiers of the gun control movement, and the fund he leads recently owned a piece of the firearms industry.
On Thursday, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Soros expressed interest in the divestment idea. Asked by International Business Times if investors who support gun control should sell their holdings in firearms companies, Soros responded: “I’m very much against guns. And if it can be organized on a large enough scale, I wouldn’t be opposed to it.”
Securities and Exchange Commission filings reviewed by IBT show Soros Fund Management as a top institutional shareholder in Vista Outdoors — considered the country’s top ammunition manufacturer — and Olin Corp., which makes ammo under the Winchester name.
Many of the biggest Wall Street donors to President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton — who have both called for stricter gun regulations — are among the largest institutional investors in guns and ammunition manufacturers.
If all these Wall Street donors moved in unison against gun stocks, there is every sense that a great firearms pump-and-dump could be underway to cripple the market, and force firearms, ammo, parts and accessories off the shelves.

Is that what is happening?
George Soros is effectively advocating a policy of economic sanctions against the firearms industry – using a tactic of war to, ultimately, limit guns in the hands of the people.
In 2011, an email chain letter circulated among the right claimed that Soros was controlling a hedge fund buying gun and ammunition manufacturers and wanted to “restrict or ban all civilian guns.” The email was false and widely shared. The National Rifle Association condemned it and urged its members not to pass along a rumor that had “caused a great deal of unnecessary concern for gun owners.”
But for all of the worry from gun owners that Soros might try to keep weapons out of their hands, a firm run by Soros purchased shares in ammunition companies last year without causing any stir.
The price of ammo has been driven up drastically in recent years with pressures on supply. Meanwhile, gun sales have soared to new records each time President Obama has announced new gun control efforts. But will gun control policies ultimately tie the guns into knots with red tape?
It remains to be seen how it will play out.
But there has been a war of propaganda underway on the gun effort throughout the Obama Administration. There has been a great deal of toying with supply and demand and using public fear and outrage as marketing models.
Who does this ultimately serve?
This pattern parallels many deceptive political movements to undermine the rights and sovereignty of this country. The Council on Foreign Relations publication Foreign Affairs published this quote by Richard Gardner in 1974 describing how billionaire operatives like George Soros would conspire to undermine American freedom:
In short, the ‘house of world order’ would have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down. It will look like a great ‘booming, buzzing confusion,’ to use William James’ famous description of reality, but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old-fashioned frontal assault.“
Another CFR man, James Warburg – whose father oversaw the creation of the Federal Reserve system – bluntly stated:
The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.
Stay vigilant; the right to keep and bear arms is under sneak attack.
