Bushmaster Firearms International

Bushmaster XM-15

A great deal of anti-gun bias in these articles focusing primarily on the Sandy Hook massacre and little else. Why is the Bushmaster website an archive link? Are they trying to make it seem like its defunct?

Good find. Biased encyclopedia is biased.

Have you read any of Lightbreather's blog posts? According to her WP has a pro-gun cabal that runs the articles and expels gun control people. She documented her assertions, but I haven't checked her work.

Some of Jimbo's early edits were to gun-related articles. His very first edit was this:

Wikipedia's early community was very libertarian and libertarians don't like government intervention like gun control. Maybe things have changed since then, for all I know.
