Remington, Marlin, Bushmaster and DPMS are owned by Cerberus. Cerberus now owns the Chrysler Corp. as they bailed them out.
One positive aspect to Cerberus is that the huge political clout Cerberus commands should undermine efforts to ban AR-platform rifles if the Government tries anything like another AWB.
Cerberus is big enough to influence Washington. Money talks in DC and Cerberus has plenty.
This was as of 12/2008, I don't know if they still own them, anybody know?
