      of gun manufacturers through its ownership of the Freedom Group. I was surprised to see how many Cerberus (a private equity firm that includes Republican notables  Dan Quayle and John W. Snow) had in their portfolio. They own about a dozen firearms manufacturers including some well known names such as Remington and Bushmaster. Here is a list.
