View Full Version : Gun Stories not helping with their AK-47 piece tonight

Tonight they are covering the AK. They haven't shown it in semi-auto all night. Only full auto. In America, which is the ONLY place on earth that matters, 99% of the AK's out there are NOT full auto. This show is doing a disservice, IMO, to the AK, as it is known in the US. :upeyes: Normally I like this show alot. And I like this episode on the AK, but with the current media anti-gun propaganda/election spin cycle currently happening, this story could have been told a little better. I also realize that lefty nimrods probably don't watch this show, but they have their little spies always lurking to help spread their :puking:

End of rant. :)

I'm watching it right now. Within the parameters of TV it is pretty accurate. I will wait to see if they make the distinction between the semi and the full auto. I have a strong hunch they will.

Americans are MORONS!

Always have been and always will be.

This is what the demoCRAPS count on.....and they are never disappointed!

Americans are IDIOTS! Plain and simple.

I'm a gun lover but when I think of AK's, I think of full auto weapons used by Commies, Islamists, and other third world warlords. I realize that some are made mostly in the US nowadays, but I don't think I'll ever think of them as guns that belong in this country.

They did give a one sentence mention of "semi automatic models for the civillian market" but I think they could have done a much better job if they had taken about 30 seconds to spell it out.

Well, if they are talking about the AK47... its not some semi-auto imported by Century arms, its a full auto Assault Rifle. If the people viewing the show do not know that semi auto variants exist, its not really the fault or concern of "gun stories".

Don't get me wrong, I've shot them when I was younger and I understand the appeal when surplus AK's and their ammo were dirt cheap, but now that prices are up and quality is down, and quality AR's can be assembled for the same price, I don't see the point. Same goes for Makarov's.

yep.. I love AK variants but I would never buy one at todays prices. I am glad I bought them when I could get a Polytech for $325 and any ole SKS was $50.

Yeah, I learned my lesson on AK value. Everyone recommends an Arsenal. The SGL runs $820-850. I bought a Colt LE6920 FDE MOE with 2 PMags for $1050.

At this point in time, the AR is a better value, IMO.

I am with the OP. if you are going to have a show on TV covering AK's or AR15's you need to make numerous references that full auto is not legal without numerous hurdles and lots of $$. Most Americans think guns you see in the movies are totally legal, buy Walmart, ..... So when gun control bills come up most people agree that a full auto M60 machine gun is not needed for hunting and support the ban. My wife lives in a house full of guns. Sees guns everyday. She has no idea what's what or how they work. She is very smart and pro gun but if not for me who knows what her stance would be as she doesn't know what she is talking about when it comes to guns. She just is not interested. Somebody like her sees a show on TV and that is their new reality.

Hence, my point!:wavey:

Most people believe what they see on TV or read in the paper (or on the Internet), two VERY POWERFUL mediums, and the liberals use that to THEIR advantage.

They count on people being stupid so that they can control them. It is their agenda and it is very dangerous!

...This show is doing a disservice...

Forgive me, but I don't think showing an AK operating in full-auto mode on a gun show does anymore of a "disservice" then someone driving a Ferrari at 180mph on Top Gear.

If you understand full-automatic firearms then you know that they are no more "deadly" then a semi-automatic firearm. You also understand the strict laws surrounding their transfer, purchase and possession.

Additionally, if someone is truly scared of a firearm simply because it is full-auto then they are ignorant of the facts and probably also just as scared of the equivalent semi-auto version.

I agree with H&K 4life,

I happened to catch the AK gunstories last night around midnight, watched the complete episode and thought it was very good. The show is about the AK47 not the legalites of the rifle and its variants in the USA. Gunstories is exactly that, "gun stories"... its not about gunlaws is about theGun.


The media knows all about full auto/ semi auto and I would be inclined to beleive that 99% of the general public do as well. They simply are not going to acknowlege it outloud becuase it doesnt bolster their argument or spin. The other 1% who believe that any ole joe can purchase a full auto AK at the store is probably not going to be convinced otherwise.

A lot of anti-gun people know there is a difference between full auto military and semi-auto civilian. But they also think everyone is buying a 25 cent part to convert them to full auto.

How do you do that, I ask them?

I watched it twice, and I thought it was pretty accurate. I like Joe; he's got the right tone and attitude/persona for the show. The only thing that bothered me about this particular episode is when the old guy in the cowboy hat said that he wouldn't buy an AK-47 because they're "Un-American". :upeyes: Seriously? You still call fries "Freedom-Fries" too?

Whatever. When the end of the world comes, you can clean your AR after 1,000 rounds, and I'll pick up my "Un-American" Romanian and keep on truckin'.
