This picture was released by the San Francisco Police. They describe it as a woman holding and AK-47 driving around town. Obviously we need to have more laws to stop people from possessing these “weapons of war“.
Once again, let’s back the F’ing truck up.
Perhaps the police need some help in identifying “weapons of war“.
That’s not an AK-47. It’ an AKS-74U also known as a Krinkov.
The Krinkov is a fully automatic (machine gun), short barreled rifle. A Krinkov would be ILLEGAL to own unless the woman had complied with FEDERAL LAW. Possession would require TWO FEDERAL tax stamps under the National Firearms Act (NFA). One for a fully automatic weapon and separately one for a short barreled rifle. Lacking the proper tax stamps is a violation of FEDERAL LAW. Interestingly, in the STATE of California it is ILLEGAL to POSSESS either a machine gun or a short barreled rifle even if you have the FEDERAL NFA tax stamps.
Additionally a LEGAL Krinkov is extremely rare and might cost between $20,000.00 and $50,000.00 to obtain. We won’t go into the fact that the clear plastic magazine looks to be of newer production and is ILLEGAL to own in the STATE of California.
There are some exceptions to these EXISTING LAWS. The woman in question might be have a FEDERAL: FIREARM LICENSE (FFL) of Type 7, Class 03. This is a license to manufacture “destructive devices” including machine guns and short barreled rifles. The woman must be a Type 7 Class 03 FFL holder otherwise it would ALREADY be ILLEGAL for her to possess the Krinkov. Without the license she would be violating several FEDERAL and STATE LAWS. The penalty she faces without the FFL is 20 years and $500,000.00 for the FEDERAL violations and 16 years (possibly more) on the STATE violations.
Obviously more laws would fix this problem, according to President Biden.
I suspect President Biden is okay with her, because she is wearing her COVID mask.
