security to millions of people around the world. The idea of creating a new weapon came to the young sergeant Kalashnikov in 1941, when he was hospitalized due to a serious injury wondering why do all Germans have their own guns and Russians only one

At first glance, I thought that was Toby Maguire!ReplyDelete
I never knew about the (1) gun to every (2) or (3) men until recently when I saw that Jude Law movie. They were standing on line with their fingers crossed hoping that they were going to be the guy with the gun and not bullets.
No resemblance whatsoevah LOLDelete
Yes, Hitler started the war prepared, but in other countries people had to fight with their own hands as everybody had to join the war and you cannot arm everyone, and plus, the Russians had millions of people in the war. Apparently, there has been about half a billion of these guns produced ever since.
I still see the resemblance, especially in the first and third photo.Delete
Any weapon can be used for offence or defence.ReplyDelete
Yes, but not all were designed originally like that. He designed it to protect his country against the Nazis, but later on it, sadly, became, due to it not being overly expensive, weapon of many resurgence fighters around the world, that is not something he wanted.Delete
Remorse after the fact does no good. That’s an incredibly scary number of these guns that have been produced since.ReplyDelete
He was still proud, and should be, for saving his country and soldiers who fought against the Nazis.Delete
And that is just the number of kalashnikovs, imagine how many other guns there are.
Too many are out there, in my opinion.Delete
They should be banned everywhere.Delete
