Not in the house. You don’t want a weapon that shoots through walls.

I’ve seen a photo of three Israeli girls in tight civies with their M-16 rifles. They were at a concession stand getting drinks or whatever.

It’s funny how libs always refer to AK-47s. What is it with libs and their love of all things Soviet?

They just don't know any better ...

Oh really ??

While you cannot buy a fully-automatic AK-47 without a Class III Federal Firearms Licence, you can buy a semi-automatic AK or AK-clone very easily. People even manufacture them here in the States. To wit:

Romainan AK-47

Gunsamerica AK-47's for sale listing

You'd be surprised at how many Freepers own AK rifles. . .

““But I also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers and not in the hands of crooks.”

Right. So take them away from crooks.

“They belong on the battlefield of war, not on the streets of our cities,” he added.

Wrong. All lawful citizens should have one if they choose whether they’re “on the streets” or not.

All I will say is it is interesting this hits right before the vote on the UN gun treaty.

Expect a bipartisan push for approval, followed by the banning of all guns. The Elite see dark clouds on the horizon, and don't want the little people to be able to get to them.

“AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers and not in the hands of crooks. They belong on the battlefield of war, not on the streets of our cities”

He betrays his biases. The way he states it, the only alternative to soldiers having AK-47s is for “crooks” to have them. So, he really views all civilian firearms owners as “crooks”.

Okay so.....you said here:

He should know that an American citizen can not legally buy an AK-47.

Was wrong right?

Here's WHAT YOU WROTE:

Then Salgak writes,,,,Oh really ?? While you cannot buy a fully-automatic AK-47 without a Class III Federal Firearms Licence, you can buy a semi-automatic AK or AK-clone very easily.

But then you say, I'm fully aware of all those details.

Which is it?
