Apparently the law was changed to allow Iraqis to keep AKs. (Maybe because there's more AKs than people in Iraq and Kurdistan combined) [url]http://www.dailystar.com/star/today/30601iiraq-amnesty.html [/url] EDITED TO ADD: I bet the UN is not happy at all.

Right now the restricted weapons are: Crew-served weapons, including machine guns RPGs Anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons Indirect fire weapons (mortars, grenade launchers, artillery) Automatic rifles up to 7.62 caliber are OK to possess. They've got it better than we do.

I wonder if we can use this. The people of a former enemy nation have more RKBA rights than the occpying force's nation. There has to be a way to use this to our advantage, especially when crime drops and the Iraqi people start rounding up the badguys.

The only reason they changed the rules is because it would have been totally impossible to round them all up, it would have caused to many casualities and they are having a public image problem now. Lessons to be learned for domestic use.
