    I'm not a fan of Bushmaster, however, you can not blame the manufacture!

    Buy a bunch of individual companies, close their plants and move them, run their quality, product line and reputation in to the ground and put 'em up for sale. I think the Chinese can afford to purchase all of Freedom Group. With owners like Cerebrus, who needs enemies?

    I think we've found our next presidential candidate.

    Cerberus is a Capital Investment company. They buy companies and strip them of cash, then sell them. Like Chrysler.

    Good, they ruined these companies, cheapening out the guns then bailing on them when it gets bad. Maybe we can get some descent rifles now.
