I Think This Should Read …

a journalists guide to Firearms Identification.  I’d be pretty impressed with any journalist that could correctly identify all of these, but the joke is amusing, nonetheless.

UPDATE: Thanks to Robb for the photoshop correction.

    I would be impressed with a journalist who could identify a 1/3 of them.

    Wasn’t that bottom one on the left some kind of Star Trek phaser?

    I agree it’s very amusing and makes a good point.

    Ok, I’m gonna give it a shotL

    AK 47, AR 15, P90, Mini Uzi, Barret (bolt action), Walther PPK/S, CZ75, RPG7

    Don’t know what the car is, but the “phaser” is actually a pneumatic toy gun…

    The item on the bottom-left of the chart is a toy gun that shoots raw potato pellets, mikeb. You can pick one up off Amazon for about five bucks (“).

    It has always amazed me that major newspapers and networks could not be bothered to hire one veteran or firearms expert onto the editorial staff. It shows real distain.

    All in all, it’s funny, and makes a valid point to anyone with intelligence and a sense of humor.

  8. Carl in Chicago says:

    Yes, they are all AK47s.

    Have some fun. At random, just ask strangers if they know what an AK47 is … they will inevitably say “yes.” Then ask them to describe one to you. The answers will go all over the place (and usually not even close).

    I still think their poor little minds would come apart if they learned about AK-74s …
