It's not his Assualt Rifle, it's his families!
Kerry has his chauffeur fire it for him!
If he indeed owns an AK, odds are it's a Dewat.
And if a dewat (DEactivated WAr Trophy), we'd need to
know if it's of the registered or unregistered variety,
and then any local laws that might apply.
So don't go ballistic over this just yet.
It could all be perfectly legal.
Maybe- but its illegal to bring back "war souvenirs".
But it is possible that he could own one. He would have to apply for a Class III permit and if he cleared a background check (which I doubt he could, Commie ties an all) he would pay $200.00 for a Tax Stamp and he could own one. I have a Class III permit myself, it took me 4 months to get cleared, but it's not a big deal to get as long as you have a pretty clean record
"...OL: Are you a gun owner? If so, what is your favorite gun?
Bush: Yes. My favorite gun is a Weatherby, Athena 20-gauge (over/under).
Kerry: My favorite gun is the M-16 that saved my life and that of my crew in Vietnam. I dont own one of those now, but one of my reminders of my service is a Communist Chinese assault rifle..."
It's O.K. for HIM to own....it's just not O.K. for YOU to own, says he.
A True, Dithering Ditz, and I hope it lands him in JAIL.
I'm sure the Viet Cong gave it to him as a token of appreciation.
That's why they sold those Sansui SP3500 Speakers (Beautiful Cabinets) at the old Papa XRay, daddy-o.
Inside you could hide all sorts of booty.
Maybe he has it to keep his lunatic wife at bay!
It's not his, it belongs to his Chinese laundry man. No tickee, no laundree!
That's just for HIM..not for you little people.
Does Kerry Own Assault Rifle? If So, Where is it, Second Amendment Foundation Asks

BELLEVUE, Wash., Sept. 16 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Does Sen. John Kerry, a supporter of the so-called "assault weapons" ban, own a "Communist Chinese assault rifle," as suggested by his remarks in the October issue of Outdoor Life?
If so, the Second Amendment Foundation wants to know where Kerry keeps that rifle, if it is legally registered, and how the senator got it into the United States, SAF Founder Alan Gottlieb said today.
"Senator Kerry's own words once again trip him up in an apparent hypocrisy," Gottlieb stated. "Responding to a question from Outdoor Life about whether he is a gun owner, and if so, what's his favorite gun, Kerry strongly intimates he has an assault rifle, which is illegal to own both in Massachusetts and Washington, D.C."
The Kerry quote appears on Page 82 of the October issue of Outdoor Life. In that comment, the senator states, "My favorite gun is the M-16 that saved my life and that of my crew in Vietnam. I don't own one of those now, but one of my reminders of my service is a Communist Chinese assault rifle."
"Here's another example of Kerry running on his Vietnam service history," Gottlieb observed, "which has become a major campaign issue, for the wrong reasons. Now he's talking as if he's got an assault rifle stashed somewhere, while he's been railing against their ownership by other law-abiding American citizens.
"Senator Kerry," Gottlieb demanded, "where's the rifle? In which one of your mansions are you hiding that gun? Why should it be okay for you to have a Communist Chinese assault rifle when you think nobody else should have one? And if you don't have one, why would you intimate to Outdoor Life that you do?
"Senator," Gottlieb continued, "you told a crowd in St. Louis on Sept. 10 that, 'As a hunter, I have never ever thought about going hunting with an AK-47 or an Uzi or anything else'. So, then why would a Communist Chinese assault rifle be your favorite gun?
"Whether he is lying about owning the gun, or just being a hypocrite," Gottlieb concluded, "this remark is just more proof that Senator Kerry is full of crap."
The Second Amendment Foundation is the nation's oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 600,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control. SAF has previously funded successful firearms-related suits against the cities of Los Angeles; New Haven, Conn.; and San Francisco on behalf of American gun owners, a lawsuit against the cities suing gun makers & an amicus brief & fund for the Emerson case holding the Second Amendment as an individual right.
Off topic but it's late. W's gun is an over/under. The 20 Ga sounds like it's for birds? Am I wrong?
Also, somewhere in the dark recess of my mind, I remember reading my uncles gun catalogs from back in the 50s. I seem to recall that an over/under could refer to a shotgun and a rifle combined. Anyone ever see one of those? Like a 12 ga under a 30-06. Or has a once great mind gone to waste.
No, no, it was given to him in 1968 by a "CIA guy" when kerry was sent by President Nixon, who wasn't president yet, on a "secret mission" to Cambodia, a secret mission that nobody else remembers -- except Doug Brinkley who wasn't there. Hope this clears things up.
Can you imagine: If you believed in the DNC, and were a part of his campaign staff...
Your candidate piles it up...
...and then steps in it at every opportunity...
They don't make enough Paxil....
Yeah, but it's George Bush's fault. His tax cut made this purchase possible. Doesn't he know I can't be trusted with my own money?
