While you may not know this name (or perhaps you do) they probably own a firearms company you recognize. In the last two years Cerberus has aquired either directly or indirectly:
Rumor has it Cerberus is on the prowl for a handgun manufacturer as well. They also own Chrysler. Rather a fascinating portfolio.
