Does AK-47 sound scarier?
I have a question. Why did Obama specifically call out the AK-47 today in his comments supporting more gun control? His comments are presumably in response to the CO shooting, and wanting to play on people fears and knee-jerk reactions to prevent that from happening again. Did he just assume that the AK sounds more violent and war like than an AR? Would not enough people know what an AR-15 is to be as scared and moved by his call to take them away from civilians?
Or, I guess it could just be the classic media guide to firearms where every rifle is a AK and everything else is a glock. Any other ideas on why he called out the AK? I would say maybe because it is foreign and a lot of ARs are American Made, but with this guy I think that would be the oposite motivation for him.
