#4 And the AK is so easy to maintain that they will last for a long time, even if not one more is sold.

#5 Typical, blame the weapon but not the user.

I'm going to name my next son Colt, my daughter Beretta and my dog Glock.

#6 It is intersting if you think about it. Apparantly the dastardly US not only supplied Soviet (and their allies) built weapons around the world but we sent them primarily to Soviet client states and to rebels working against American clients. What a tangled web we weave.

#7 I hope they don't take our guns. It's damn incovenient to lure the burgler into the bathtub so that you can toss a radio in.

#9 If guns were outlawed we would be going to the sporting goods store and buying crossbows or throwing cups of bleach into their eyes. Those that refuse to be victims will find other weapons.

#11 My dad used to tell a story about a black Army private during WWII that used to sneak across the lines at night and come back the next morning with one or more German soldier's ears. Weapon of choice? Straight razor.

There are no such thing as dangerous weapons, only dangerous men.

#12 Old Patriot makes a good point.

By his bed my dad keeps a two foot long maglight that I gave him for his birthday. He is past 65 years old, but played middle guard for the New York Titans of the old AFL. He is 6'4" tall and 400 lb (1.9 meters and 10 Kg) He used to be able to cover 40 meters in 5.0 seconds - haven't times him recently.

He has no gun, but don't rob his house unless you come armed like Alaska Paul, when he takes a stroll through bear country.

He was burglarized once while he was out of town and didn't take it well.
