    But he brought joy to so many! Who am I to judge?

    Maxim , Browning , Colt , Smith&Wesson all of them moved mankind up the food chain over the last two hundred years Kalashnikov stands at their sides like it or not

    The nice thing about the AK-47 is, when you’re thinking what sized bullet holes you want in yourself, an AK-47 is pretty humble. It’s basically saying “Here I am, God. Just me. No fancy high-falutin’ Glock did this. Just the people’s gun.”

    Yep. All of those deaths were Mikhail Kalashnikov’s fault. RIGHT. Go find another sand mound to stick your head into, Matt Bors.

    One of the greatest man to ever live. If there is such thing as heaven, and such a thing as god, sucker better let him in.

    Like King, I thought it looked more like George Carlin, intentional?? As to weapons, Maxim’s invention was much more horrific, but Gatling got thins started, as with “Vulcan” 20 mm, or “miniguns” in either 7.62 or 5.56 for “anti-personnel”. Our first minis on “Puff” were devistatingly scare to watch, let alone being targeted by, at night a red firehose with a “burp” sound…

    We really don’t need nukes to kill a lot of people with modern weapons, like cluster bombs that wipe out a lot of kids as just “collateral damage”.

    @Troy Young

    Don’t shoot the messenger. Bors is just an artist with a view of what’s going on. You wouldn’t yell at a guy doing sketches of people under trial in the Supreme Court just because he didn’t leave out their warts and bald spots. (Unless it was an unflattering portrait of yourself, perhaps, or an unplanned photo of the Dear Leader.)

    It all depends on whether you defended your own freedom with an AK-47 or defended it against someone who had an AK-47. It’s not the weapon, it’s the reason it’s being used. When people stop using weapons for aggression, then we can get rid of them altogether. Until then: “In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king”.

    Kalishnikov was just trying to build a gun that would work for poorly trained, undernourished, unsupported Russian soldiers in the Siberian winter. The fact that it could be easily used by other people outside Russia was not on his mind at the time.

    If he’d lived under capitalism rather than Communism, we might now have a Kalishnikov Peace Prize committee.

    It’s all based upon the use of fire. Imagine the number of kills that guy has to take credit for. Kalishnikov is only another victim of Prometheus. I say we chain him to a rock and let the eagles eat his liver forever, or at least put on Hotel California on a loop so he has to listen to it forever.

    I like your comment. The perfect Capitalist weapon, it seems to me, would be the presently “abhorred” neutron bomb. How long before we rationalize its use in warfare? No fuss, no muss — except for the bodies, but maybe those can be used as compost.

    The perfect weapon is government. It can kill softly, but still keep major force in reserve against need in the case of non-compliance. any government rules by the will of those it governs, and where they do not allow themselves to be ruled willingly, then force is always available to help them think clearly.

    MortyForTyrant: Maxim’s was a true machine gun, it didn’t require power other than its own recoil. The hand cranked Gatling gun was electrically powered by the Spanish-American War, but only use on ships, because it used ammunition too rapidly to be supplied on land.

    The 47 was intended to help defend “the homeland”. Were “fat man” and “little boy” likewise, and now we don’t want anyone else to have them? Kalashnikoff didn’t see the misuse of his weapon that would follow, but Oppenheimer and others well knew the danger of THEIR little “inventions”.
