social experiment

A politically-loaded experiment involving a man walking through central Moscow with a replica of an AK-74 assault rifle has hit the Russian blogs. Not a single police officer reportedly stopped or questioned him.

Pavel Tarasov, apparently armed with an openly displayed automatic weapon, strolled through central Moscow, while Vadim Tsibankov took photos of him standing right next to police officers. Vadim describes the experience in a report which is currently top of the Russian blogosphere.

In Soviet Russia, replica AK muzzle sweeps EVERYONE!

From what I can gather, open carry isn’t legal in Russia, so the fact no one batted an eyelash is interesting.  If you ask me, that’s the way it should be though.  The guy was just chilling with his buddies by the look of it, so even if it was real a real firearm, he obviously wasn’t a threat.  I’m so sick of the “only police should carry guns” mentality.  Thankfully even the people in the US that believe that nonsense still have to put up with a growing number part of the population that can’t afford armed security 24/7 so they decide to protect themselves.

Thoughts?
