AK-47s For Sale On Home Shopping Type Network

Obviously fake, but pretty awesome:

The muzzle sweep on the initial presentation, and continuous poor muzzle discipline was a nice touch.

Child soldier too!  Trolls gonna troll.   Interestingly enough the commercial was made many years ago by Amnesty International.

Funny how it has the opposite effect they would have hoped for on gun owners, especially those with a sense of humor.

Thoughts?

Reminds me of the real HSN dude who accidentally stabbed himself with one of those junk Japanese swords (it broke) several years back.

Deminds me of Stern magazine’s cover of GWB as Rambo and his cabinet as action heroes. They thought it was insulting and sarcastic; President Bush thought it was funny, and the mazgazine sold out from Bush supporters wanting a copy as a souvinear.

Why don’t organizations like this differentiate between ILLEGAL arms selling and LEGAL arms selling? If Mother Russia were allowed to ship whatever they wanted to the United States legally, our gun owners would single-handedly bail out their arms manufacturing companies and we would generate thousands of jobs here. Legally. OMG *run away everyone*

Because most of these people come from gun hating Europe and are brainwashed into a guns = bad mentality. They don’t have a concept of civilian legal firearms so they don’t think to address it in their ads and slogans.

You have got to be kidding me.

I would call them in a heartbeat for an AK at that price.

I really want to question some of these liberals on why the gun violence is so high in Chicago, NYC, and D.C. These are the same places that have tried to ban firearm ownership.

And the worst is that for this price, in certain countries, you can get a crate of them, and the ammo and magazines for all of them. (although they may not technically be AK47 if I remember well, but you got the point).

Pretty funny video, but once again Amnesty International uses the wrong means for their (obviously) good goal.

this was put on the UK DVD edition of “Lords Of War”, the one about a Viktor Bout-type figure building his arms dealing empire.

Whoever put the clip on was at least savvy enough to remove it from the US version of the DVD, realizing that Americans would not view selling an AK over Home Shopping Network as a horrifying parody but instead as good an idea as putting Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms together in a drive-through store. :P
