I would see this as no different from Browning or the creators of the atom bomb.
I don't know what your background is or whether or not you have spent any time in a communist country (I have). Communists have a collective mentality and see most things in a collective vein.
John Browning was able to prosper because he lived and believed in a free enterprise system. Individual responsibility was part of the code by which he lived, therefore he would not have a problem. However, many of the people who worked on the Manhattan Project have expressed regret. I do not know if it was because of the awesome power of their product, the Pandora's Box syndrome, or some skewed moral perspective.
But, understanding the weltanschuaang
of communists, it is refreshing to see that Mr. Kalashnikov has risen above it.
