A letter in the Tribune Sunday, March 30, gives us strong reasons to keep AK-47s out of the hands of macho men like Gordon Jacobs. Jacobs opined that if all the people in Crimea had been armed with AK-47s and a hundred rounds of ammo, President Putin would have backed off.
The Crimean people are mostly Russian, Mr. Jacobs, and under your scenario, they would have been killing the invading Russians!
