Evidently the Obama administration banned importing Russian-made AK-47 assault rifles as part of sanctions against Russia for invading Crimea. This has created an AK-47 buying frenzy from people wanting to own one. According the Washington Post, some people stockpiled the rifles, buy up to 10 of them at around $1,000 each, as investments.
I don’t get it. Why would any American wan an AK-47?
The AK-47 is the official rifle of communists and people from countries where they don’t love Jesus. I’m an American. I was born in America. My parents were born in America. Their parents were born in America. If I ever wanted a military rifle that I had no real possible need for, I wouldn’t buy an AK-47, I’d do the patriotic thing and buy an M-16.
I’d no more buy an AK-47 than I would take goose step lessons or ask my server at Golden Coral if they have Russian dressing at the salad bar.
I’m frankly embarrassed that Americans have to be told not to buy AK-47s or anything else made in Russia. This is something a true Americans should already know, like taking off their hat during the National Anthem.
