Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, August 10, 2019

Foreign nations are warning their citizens that traveling in the United States could put them at risk of becoming a victim of a mass shooting. A statement Monday from Uruguay's Foreign Ministry warned about "growing indiscriminate violence" in the U.S. It urged Uruguayans traveling there to avoid "theme parks, shopping centers, festivals, religious events, gastronomic fairs and any kind of cultural or sporting events." U.S. authorities are unable to prevent mass shootings because of "indiscriminate" gun ownership, the statement said. Venezuela's foreign minister released a similar statement, also warning its citizens to avoid large gatherings where mass shootings might occur. The Japanese Consul in Detroit on Sunday published an alert that said Japanese nationals "should be aware of the potential for gunfire incidents everywhere in the United States," which it described as "a gun society."

Notice the only countries complaining are the ones where citizens are not allowed guns.

They would faint even if shown just a picture of a gun.

I was talking to a Chinese friend by Whatsapp (before they banned Whatsapp) and showed him a picture of a Beretta (mine). He was shocked... "Your govt allows you to keep such a weapon???" he asked. I said, it's just a 9mm pistol, dude.. what's the big deal?

But he just couldn't imagine. Took him a while for that to sink in.

Thing is, China makes some of the best gun related stuff. When in Pak, I only use chinese ammo. I got chinese laser for one gun, a chinese red-dot sight for a shotgun and chinese scope for a rifle. And China makes the best AKs (better than the Russian originals) and Tokarevs (Norinco) and Makarovs. They also make a clone of the Beretta chambered in some weird ammo for the civilian market overseas.

But the Chinese people have no access to any of that. ZERO. As far as they are concerned, China doesn't make any guns.

The power of restricted information....

All that is Chinese stuff you can home-order. LOL

Some of it makes your gun 10 times deadlier but it's all sold openly.

And China makes the best AKs

Stamped POS. Want to shoot the actual top of the line AK? They're made in Texas. Billet everything, machined perfection.

You call these guns PoS but I'm pretty sure you never fired one.

Whatever....

I am pretty sure the American made gun would be machined great.

But is it better than a NORINCO made AK?

I don't know that and neither do you.

I would agree both would be better than any Russian.

BTW, the American AK would be downgraded to fire semi-auto... best feature of a Kalashinkov gone. So NOT the best in that regard. LOL

You can keep that "AK" for yourself. I want no part of that nonsense.

It's better in everything except price tag. It won't even blow up in your hands if it's badly maintained. If you have your NFA trust, it will be full-auto. Of course you know that, being a Texan.

and Chinese accessories are what people buy when they can't afford the real thing lol. Zeiss & Trijicon are expensive for a reason.

... When they want value for money.

They work just fine, thank you very much.

Zeiss & Trijicon

Also now made in China. LOL

It's better

So you keep insisting.

Of course you know that, being a Texan.

No I do not know that because I never even tried.

Thing is... what you will never understand.... I make or alter my accessories. I even make guns.

It's far easier on me to mess with a Chinese accessory and alter it in any way I like than to mess with a Zeiss optic for example.

I subscribe to the theory, "Buy cheap tools and change them to suit your needs".... NOT to "get the best". There is no "best" and never will be.
