    BTW, the NRA doesn't represent nor does it get any money from the Russian AK-47 market. Just in case you didn't think about that in what appeared to be a "misfired" (pun intended) jab at the NRA?
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Well, maybe I was wrong about NRA.
    But the fact that the Americans who came to love the Russian AK-47 for reliability, simplicity and power, ran to the store to buy the rest of the legendary Russian-made guns makes me laugh

    You know, I'm not the least bit surprised. I wonder when my husband is going to beg me to let him buy one of them.

    I love your premise that Obama is the best gun salesman. That's what my husband always said about Clinton.

    Why laugh? What you said were the reasons, are true.

    And for the record, it isn't just Obama that raises firearm sales. There are a large number of Democrats that can have that same effect, such as that wonderful California Senator that every few years brings her bill back to the floor (again and again) to ban as much as she can - which makes the shelves clear each time of ammo, magazines, rifles, hand guns and of course t-shirts galore.

    Hope that he doesn't. A Russian made AK-47 bought with a Class III license would cost you about 35 to 50 grand - before the ban went into place. I have no idea what they're going for now.

    I found this for you:

    These guys are only showing one left at $55K and it's a Chinese Communist model that looks pretty rough.

    Oh don't worry. He isn't getting that kind of money to buy a gun, I don't care if Sean Connery personally delivers it to our house naked.

    It would still be a real cool thing to own though.

    Re: Barack Obama - the best sales agent in this century

    From the article:

    "Gun sales tend to spike whenever American consumers believe that new restrictions are imminent".

    This couldn't be more true.

    "Mr Obama's 2008 and 2012 election victories both caused surges in demand and gun owners went on a buying spree after the Sandy Hook shooting".

    Amazing how the election of a president caused a surge in gun ownership twice over.
    People felt the need to protect themselves.
