In 1945, at the close of the Second World War, Soviet gun manufacturers produced a weapon that continues to have a serious impact on the world to this day.
The AK-47, commonly known simply as the “AK”, was wildly ahead of its time when it began rolling out of assembly lines. Unlike many assault weapons produced in western countries, the firearm rarely jammed, and has been proven to perform under harsh geographic conditions. Adding to this is its affordability, easy of use, and lethality on the battlefield — and it was made by socialists.
Interestingly, the leftists of yesteryear seem to have less in common with their modern contemporaries every day. While communist revolutionaries often praised the prospect of armed insurrections, today’s neo-progressives seem convinced that a blanket gun ban for every individual on earth would erase conflict and war as we know it.
Calling the AK-47 the only good thing socialists ever created isn’t too much of an exaggeration, as it’s difficult to recall any other accomplishment.
