    Weapon of peace, Has been used and is still used by some of the worst people in the world for their dastardly deeds. Ironic isn't it.

    Though with how many M-16 pattern rifles that have fallen into terrorists hands in the last couple years i can see the image of it changing.

    That video shows how out of touch with reality the French news media are, to believe that the AK-47 is now "America's weapon of choice".

    I personally know several people who own AR-15's, and not a single person that owns an AK-47.

    Sounded like an American reporter and shown on MS-L.S.D., how is this "French"?
    According to the story in the link, the rebranding is being done by the Russian manufacturer, Kalashnikov, not by the "French news media."

    Maybe I need more sleep but don't seem to be getting the same out of this as some are. ?

    Anyhow I think the AK is a good weapon for the other guy to have; my Colt AR is very accurate, has never failed to work, and isn't gonna be traded in for an AK.

    Glad to see the author of that piece took a very unbiased approach to the story....

    TL;DR is all.... but!!!!

    Isn't 'war making' the same thing as 'peace making'? And WTF is 'peace keeping' anyway??

    RIP, Kalashnikov... I love your rifle, even if you were a commie puke! Haha!!
