A Gun Designer's Regret

Likely a common feeling among them all, the designer of the famous AK-47 has this to say:

It is painful for me to see when criminal elements of all kinds fire from my weapon.

We have steered away from this firearm for the related reason that we associate it with evil. Kalashnikov's comment, unfortunately, only refers to the evil in the criminal elements of society. He continues:

I created this weapon primarily to safeguard our fatherland.

But like the Ushanka hat that we named this site after, we associate the AK-47 to the logical next step that Kalashnikov cannot - Communism. Kill millions. Imprison millions more. All, or at least most, at the point of his AK-47.

It is not the weapon. It is who uses it, how it is used, and if it compliments a sexy ushanka...
