This title is to a letter that was published in today's Medford Tribune. I hope I can quote it here: "I have noticed a number of times in the last few months that gun dealers are allowed to advertise ak-47s for sale for approximately $400 to $595. "Have you folks at the Tribune lost your minds? Or, is it an oversight by the advertising department? As we all know, an AK-47 is a 'killing machine' and nothing else! Gun dealers should be prohibited from selling them and should have to divulge where they get them from! "As a veteran of the Korean War, I'm very much aware the damage this weapon can do. It's not used for hunting deer, elk or any other game animal that can be legally hunted. Most of the people that get their hands on this weapon of mass destruction are crooks, bankrobbers, etc., and the police department is totally outgunned by these criminals. I can't understand why anyone would want to own one, even a collector of guns!" R."Andy" Anderson, Phoenix Does any body see the lies and smears in this? He acts like these guns are being smuggled into America. He doesn't seem to know or care that each sale has to go through the BATFE and the State Police. He doesn't know that AKs have a relatively "pip-squeak" caliber. He doesn't know about the modern weapons that the police have. I think that he crawled out from under a rock in the Kalifornia Soviet Socialist Republik and came here to Kalifornicate Oregon. Jerks like this we don't need! Let him go back to the totalitarian regime he left and leave us with our Constitution! Long Live Freedom!
