NEW YORK — The private equity firm Cerberus will sell the firearms company that produced one of the weapons believed to have been used in the shootings at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., calling it a "watershed event" in the national debate on gun control.

Cerberus said Tuesday that it would sell its stake in the Freedom Group, which stood at 95 percent as of a 2011 regulatory filing. Freedom Group owns the Bushmaster rifle brand, as well as Remington and other gun makes.

On Friday, 20 children were killed, 26 people in all, at Sandy Hook Elementary School in one of the worst mass shootings in U.S history. The gunman, Adam Lanza, is believed to have used a .223-caliber Bushmaster AR-15 rifle in the attack. LINK: http://xfinity.comcast.net/articles/fina...dom.Group/

First reports indicated that the Bushmaster was found in the shooter's car...what if the details were changed by .gov to indicate that the AR was the primary weapon used...you know, never waste a good tragedy!

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

What does this tin foil hat crap have to to with the OPs thread?

Cerberus will make a decision based on the best interest of its shareholders.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile

Since then they claim the autopsies have shown that all of the wounds inflicted on the children were .223 cal. That might have been difficult with either of the handguns so I suggest that they have, yet again, changed the story. How did the Bushy get in the car if it was his main weapon?

It appears this yet another horrible incident that we will never get the truth from. The reporters have everyone hearing 4-5 different things and it doesnt seem like anyone is going out of their way to clarify anything.

They're waiting to be given their next set of talking points.

The truth was not and is not forthcoming regarding "Fast and Furious" and Benghazi. In these two events the federal government had no problems creating a story and chronology of events that had little to do with fact. Why would anyone believe that the Obama administration would be compelled to present the facts on this terrible tragedy when an altered story would be so much more useful to promote their anti-gun agenda?
