Let's be accurate here

Let's be accurate here people. The AK-47s you saw in gun stores ARE NOT "assault rifles". They are "military pattern" rifles meaning they are modeled after real assault rifles but make no mistake - an AK-47 is simply a semi automatic rifle not unlike the multitude of semi-auto shotguns or hunting rifles out there.

Second - the bullet fired out of an AK-47 is NOT bigger than a 9mm. The shell casing is LONGER but the bullet itself is 7.92mm in diameter. A 9mm bullet is - you guessed it - 9mm in diameter. Last time I checked 9mm is bigger than 7.92mm.

As a point of reference, a 7.62x39mm round is smaller and less powerful than the extremely popular .308 Winchester and 30-06 rounds that are very common (and popular) hunting rounds.

The fact that the gun used was an AK-47 is pretty much irrelevant to the story as countless other COMMON HUNTING RIFLES could have been used with the exact same result.

Stick with the FACTS and stay away from the ridiculous hysterics and hyperbolic political agendas WWAY!
