The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on Keep and Bear
As anti-gun advocates raise the call for more gun-control laws, in response to the shooting of Congressman Scalise and three others in Virginia and the UPS shooting in San Francisco, they fail to realize that their efforts were already thwarted by the Virginia shooting gunman. Illinois already has strict gun-control laws with their statewide FOID card system, and yet the gunman legally purchased his guns in Illinois.
Early reports are the rifle used at the Republican congressional baseball practice was an SKS. The Chinese versions of the SKS generally do not have as nice of a stock as the Russian SKS, above. There are also a number of East block SKS rifles on the market. CNN is incorrect when they say that the SKS is an AK variant. It is a copy of the Russian SKS, not the Russian AK or the Chinese AK.
