JR @ A Keyboard and a .45 pointed this out and I got quite a surprise.
Last year American private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management bought a 80.1% stake in Chrysler who, although I am sure you already know this, effectively blackmailed the US government by threatening to close their plants 6 days before Christmas and have now gotten their share of a $13.4 billion bailout.
Cerberus is also the firm that has been playing collect-the-whole-set with American firearm manufacturers. They own either directly or indirectly Remington, Marlin, DPMS, Bushmaster and H&R.
Wikipedia has a list of Cerberus owned companies.
