An AK 47 can hit a target 2,000 feet away in one second. It weighs no more than 10 pounds. It is 14 inches long. It can be cleaned without hassle. It disassembles easily. It never jams. It is effective, light, portable, reliable – and no military expertise is required to use it (AK47). This gun can be fired by any man, woman, or child. And in third world revolutions across the world, it has been fired. Type “AK 47” into a library database and books on almost every revolution from the late 20th century will appear.
