"Importing Russia’s Top Gun" -NY Times a-kalashnikov-factory-in-russia-survives-on-sales-to-us-

Izhmash benefits from American gun laws that are looser than in its home market. In Russia, consumers can buy a long-barreled firearm only with a police permit, which requires a clean criminal sheet, a diploma from a gun safety course and a medical certificate of sanity. In the United States, laws vary by state, but buyers often need to clear only an F.B.I. criminal background check

which means anyone who isn't a convicted felon gets a gun, i believe? lawyers? buehler?

1. And my theory

that the modern American conservative movement is a product of the boffins of Dzerzhinsky Square comes full circle.

2. An AK is a great weapon to have when the doodie hits the fan

 

Think Hunger Games/Zombie Apocalypse kinda thing.
