Bushmaster Firearms International, LLC, based in Madison, North Carolina, United States, is a manufacturer and distributor of firearms. The company’s product line revolves around semi-automatic pistol and rifle variants of the M4 / AR-15 design.
In 2002, Bushmaster and a Bushmaster dealer were targets of a civil lawsuit brought by two survivors and six families of victims of the October 2002 D.C. sniper attacks, also known as the “Beltway sniper attacks,” in which two snipers used a Bushmaster XM-15 semi-automatic rifle to kill ten and injure three. On September 8, 2004 Bushmaster agreed to pay $550,000 of a $2.5 million settlement in the lawsuit and Bull’s Eye Shooter Supply of Tacoma, Washington, the Bushmaster dealer from whom one of the perpetrators said he had shoplifted the rifle, paid $2 million.
The parties agreed to mediation after a judge denied a motion to dismiss. The dealership could not account for 238 firearms that should have been in its inventory, and more than 50 guns from the dealership were traced to criminal acts between 1997 and 2001, according to an audit by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Plaintiffs claimed Bushmaster failed to exercise due diligence in ensuring their dealer was not supplying their products to criminals.
