Cerberus Capital to sell off all assets in firearms

Via HuffingtonPost

Cerberus Capital Management, a private equity firm that owns a stake in Bushmaster, the gun manufacturer that produced the rifle used in the massacre of students and teachers at an elementary school in Connecticut, announced early Tuesday that it intends to sell that investment.

“We were shocked and deeply saddened by the events that took place at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT on December 14, 2012,” the company declared in statement sent out to news outlets. “We cannot comprehend the losses suffered by the families and friends of those killed by the unthinkable crimes committed that day. No words or actions can lessen the enormity of this event or make a dent in the pain that was inflicted on so many.”

Seriously just looking at that, what exactly do you hunt with something like that? I could understand a basic rifle, but that's just getting ridiculous.

Well, Tamayn, you know how it is...you go out into the wild and you can just never know what kinda weapon those forest creatures have tucked away in their caves. #sarcasm
