Default Political Bias deletion sweep

I will be sweeping through the wiki, and will attempt to "neutralize" pages with blatant soapboxing and cheap shots at the AWB et al. Who's with me?

To be honest, there aren't many pages with the type of "bias" that you speak of.

you have an example?

And even if there is a pro 2nd amendment bias, I see no problem with that.

Before I chopped, this was in the page for the Cobray 37 flare launcher

Quote:
Cobray had been through many ups and downs throughout the years, much of which was created by the unsure business environment brought on by ignorant anti gun legislation.

Since a 37mm flare launcher cannot launch 40mm grenades, it was an uncontrolled item. However, gun ignorant politicians throughout several states have banned using the launcher in conjunction with AR15 rifles or added the launchers to items to be restricted. After all, in their minds, if it's "scary looking" it should be banned.

Well than I am not with you. IMFDB has bigger problems than pro-2nd amendment commentary.

I agree, and the other, more knowledgeable editors can see to those. I, personally, find those interludes annoying and unprofessional.

So you're against PRO gun commentary? That's a first. How about starting with just targeting the snarky or childish comments or insults or banter, not anything that criticizes the fully deserving gun banning politicians. I agree that we can still have information outlining the history behind a gun's disappearance from public sale, but in a more encyclopedic form. But IMFDB has way more stuff to fix than that.

Im okay with pro gun commentary, as long as its not stupid and is well informed. Just get rid of political crap on other issues that have nothing to do with guns, like if you see abortion/environment/gay amrriage debates, delete those. There was also that dumbass ira supporter putting crap on the patriot games page, get rid of that crap too if you see more.
