From what I’m told parts of Long Island are now a human cesspool.
The last time I looked at an AK47 at a gun show, the price was $15K, and that was probably a decade ago. A few years later I bought the semi auto version with a couple of spare 30 round mags for something like $200.
I’d take long odds that he didn’t have an AK, but that’s just me.
With 30 gang members threatening to kill me and mine, I don’t think I’d waste time on warning shots: I’ve only one round per person without reloading. The threat has been made and they have the means to carry it out, so what other option do I have to protect our lives?
