Why would any real American want an AK-47?

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.

    well for 1, you will have a hard time legally buying a m-16 since it has select fire capabilities, its civilian cousin the ar-15 though would be easier and cheaper to get. ak-47’s are actually very reliable, low maintenance guns. so easy to maintain and fire a child can do it….many do. Why would an American want an AK-47? why not? In Vietnam it was not uncommon for US troops to actually threw down their m-16s in favor of the Russian made Vietcong weapon of choice (guess what, it was the ak-47). Russia is no longer the only manufacturer of ak-47s. many eastern European states, china, and Egypt all make them as well. Ever see Red Dawn? if not ill just give you what you would read on the back of the dvd case. The USSR invaded the US. A bunch of teenager form a militia to fight against the soviet oppressors. They are all armed with ak-47s. Someone could be a big fan and would like to have their own ak. back in WWII a Japanese general once said he would never want to invade mainland USA because their would be gun behind every blade of grass. If we already have Aks here, will be way easier to re use ammo off of the invaders corpses (not suggesting a group of teenagers could likely take on the russian military, but resistance groups around the world have faced worse odds and arent dead yet.. Another reason, a person could be an avid gun collector.

    also i apologize for any bad grammar I have probably used. Its pretty late and I am really tired.
