Happy 60, AK-47!
Since Muslims, Christians and Jews all seem to agree that RADICAL Muslim Jihadists are the root cause of most terrorism in the world today, this image should offend no-one but radical Muslims. Like most people peace-loving people of all religions, I find terrorists offensive. And it's about time we offended them back.

Very valid point and a moving chop. I have never come to grips with the concept that any God would sanction murder no matter how justified in God's name. Shouting Allah Akbar are glorious words to rejoice in when a new child is born not when somebody is violenty dismembered via murder. If all men are God's creation, and if you believe that God is perfect, then evey man must be a masterpiece. Killing a man is thus no different than cutting the Mona Lisa to shreds. By not recognizing the logic of that by now, pretty much verifies the ignorance of the radical Muslim extremists. Somebody needs to go sit on a mountain and ponder the contradictions and illogics. That could probably be said for all religion but all religions are not putting themselves directly in the crosshairs of extinction by demanding the world converts or die. This chop moved me. Thanks
I agree-enough of the Political Correctness. Call it what it is and erase it.
Nice chop, perhaps a bit distant from the spirit of this contest. Over the past 60 years, AK47 has been symbolic of terrorists, partisans, freedom fighters, resistants, liberadores, 2nd Amendment freaks... you name it. "I'm armed, so I'm better than you".
Unfortunately, in the case of terrorists, might doesn't make right. The theme post does not suggest that we put a positive spin on the AK47. A lot of people feel that the world would be better off without them.
If the weapons that should jubto the skeleton (the weapon) will be taking.
