A burglary

Last year when one of my cousins came home on leave he gave me a gun as gift. It was an AK47 automatic rifle he took off a captured Kashmiri miltant. I had a lot of fun with it when we went boating. Unfortunately if you use it to shoot wild duck with it there is very little meat left . Nothing like an antique English shotgun for shooting wild duck . One day while I was sleeping I heard a noise. It looked like somebody was breaking into the house. I snuck downstairs and got the AK47 out of the gun cabinet . Quiet as a mouse I crept towards the source of the noise. The burgler had force open a window and had just stepped into the room . I switched on the lights and cocked the rifle. Suddenly I was greeted with a torrent of Russian. "Speak any English?" I asked. The burgler could see I was in no mood to be spoken to in Russian. In halting English he said " Brother, you can't shoot me with that thing. That is a Russian gun. Besides my name is Alexei Kalashnikov I am a nephew of Colonel Mikhail Timofevich Kalashnikov. You can't shoot me with a gun designed by my uncle". I could see he had a point. I stood by watching helplessly as we walked off with my American TV.

correction
> I stood by watching helplessly as he walked off with my American belief. The reports that I helped him to carry the TV are slanderous lies spread by my enemies.

Oops correction again. My fingers seem to have a mind of their own this morning.

A note: This is just a work of fiction. There isn't a grain of truth in it. I am a law abiding citizen. I do not possess any unlicenced weapons. Nor will any my family members ever sneak a captured weapon off the base and gift it to a civilian. You could say that was just wishful thinking

It's great that we have such logically thinking people like Anonymous here. I think everybody should follow his good example. From now on, if someone wants to criticize Russia, please, first present us with valid evidences that neither you nor your ascendants or countrymen ever used any Russian aid, such as tanks, guns or other forms of military help in overthrown of your legal governments.
