 The irony of a Soviet weapon being described as if intellectual property, and its imitation as theft is really amusing. 

Rest in peace Mr. Kalashnikov, after all your trauma in World War 2 you can now rest. The battles are behind you.
Someday maybe the battles will be behind everyone else, until then you're legacy, like your weapons will sustain in our memories.

He will always be a hero in my mind. A patriot who loved his country and just wanted to design the best rifle possible for its defence. He cannot be blamed for how its used and by whom. Thats like blaming Henry Ford for road deaths.

I treasure all the Kalashnikovs and also all the Mosin Nagants I have in my collection. I even praise Russian rifles in my novel. It's tough and reliable, it's Russian! Da!
