A Russian's View Of American Guns

 Stanislav Mishin in Pravda:

The Second Amendment never pertained to sporting arms, but military-style small arms. Viewing the superiority of ordinary citizens' Kentucky rifles over military muskets, one could presume that the Second Amendment was indifferent to this disparity of force. The effort to ensure that citizens are barred from owning superior weaponry is foreign to American tradition.
