Philadelphia police want to warn the public about "a dangerous high-powered weapon" linked to the shootings of four different people in two separate incidents.

The shootings happened in one week, all in the same neighborhood, and all with an AK-47 semi-automatic assault rifle.

Actually, I remember a time when AK's were the original "assault rifle" to be feared by the masses. Vietnam vets, who were then postal employees, would use them to shoot up kids on playgrounds and such.

Ramsey says "no one needs this type of rifle" well I am not going to bring a revolver up against an AK.

Right?  It would almost be like bringing a knife to a gun fight. I'd need more than a handgun to go against what arguably is the rifle that has killed more people than any other, to even begin to feel comfortable ( not that I'd be comfortable in a gunfight at all ).

It's an AK? That will make you REALLY dead. Hopefully it's just an SKS which kills you less.

If I had been at the presser, I would've been a smart ass and asked, could'nt it have been an SKS or an AR-15 in 7.62x39?
I think that is why they hated me in that newsroom.....

They should keep an eye on that neighborhood, maybe the guy who keeps shooting people there...lives there?

Also, if I was a betting man i'd bet the shooter did not vote for Romney, doesn't buy cases of ammo online, and doesn't have membership at a shooting club or support the NRA.

I expect that the Lee-Enfield, Mauser 98, and Mosin-Nagant have all been used to kill more people than the AK.
The Arisaka Type 38 is probably up there as well.

I'd throw a bet on the old maxim gun(and its offshoots) as well.

I'd suggest that it might be a Mini-30, except that apparently they've actually hit the people they were shooting at.
