The Campaign to Unload is a national coalition working toward divestiture from the gun industry.
The campaign’s current target is Cerberus Capital Management, L.P., a private equity firm that owns 94% of the worlds largest firearms and ammunition manufacturer in the world, Freedom Group. Freedom Group’s Bushmaster XM-15 assault rifle was used to murder 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December, 14, 2012. Four days later, Cerberus pledged to sell its $700 million interest in Freedom Group. Cerberus has not kept its promise.
