  1. Cultural differences unfortunately have grave consequences at times, isn’t it about time some cultures came into the 21st century.

  2. Mexicans, and other hispanics, in the U.S. do the same thing.
    Question: Where do all those bullets go? They have to come down and I’m surprised there aren’t more deaths.

  3. There’s another video that’s been out there for a while showing some Imam-looking guy doing the same thing. In this video the weapon actually started coming apart while he was firing it and shot a half-dozen rounds in every direction. They think it’s ever so manly to fire an AK47 with one hand, but they don’t realize that you’ve got to be really experienced to do something that stupid without killing half the guests.
