Although I am against Communism,but it looks like we all know why we have AK-47 created in the first place.it's because of this one legendary Russian gunsmith,Mikhail Kalashnikov,he recently passed away.

The inventor of the iconic AK-47 assault rifle, Mikhail Kalashnikov, has died at the age of 94. His ingenuity earned him widespread admiration, but his legacy became more controversial when his weapons were used in some of the world’s bloodiest conflicts.

here's his testimony to the weapon he created himself,which is known as AK-47

"I invented it for the protection of the Motherland. I have no regrets and bear no responsibility for how politicians have used it,"

Mikhail Kalashnikov

The amount of things that gun has killed, must be pretty insane.

Also Kalashnikov has nothing to do with communism, he was a soldier that fought for a country that wasn't even communist, and designed a gun.

TC being against communism means you hate the worker and are supporting the oppressive ruling class.

Thank you comrade for defending the worlds people from the US imperialists.

"I'm proud of my invention, but I'm sad that it is used by terrorists ... I would prefer to have invented a machine that people could use and that would help farmers with their work — for example a lawn mower. Blame the Nazi Germans for making me become a gun designer ... I always wanted to construct agriculture machinery."

I'm glad in the last few years of his life, he got to produce things that were not weapons

And thousands of the original, first-built AK-47s are still functioning, and will continue to function for another 94 years, at least. What an awesome gun.

They should make a special limited edition AK 47 and attach it to a lawn mower in his honour.

I don't recommend it, but if you go shoot up an elementary school you'll be "immortal". Scratch that - I can't recall the sandyhook shooter. Trying to assassinate the president is a guarantee, though.

@osirisx3: well,I am to the fact of being an anti-communism,the truth comes to the matter that Russia at that time when Kalashnikov built his first rifle,was under Communist's rule,now I took my chance to prove this to suppress Chinese economy(God,I hate how the system worked there,I mean from one-child policy to selling cheap stuffs,will that help them so much?)
