Are You Safe In Moscow Streets?

Are You Safe In Moscow Streets?

The guy decided to make an experiment and check if people can feel safe in the Moscow streets. On 9th of May he took an AK-74 gun and had a nice walk along the central streets of the Russian capital. Funny or scary but nobody stopped him or even asked him any questions while the city was full of police. What if it was not just an experiment?

  1. This guy would be idolized like a messiah in the land of the Second Amendment. Antonin Scalia would propose marriage to him.

    • It’s dummy AK-74, It can’t shoot. But you can’t recognize it without disassembly.
      The guy is municipal deputy. Cops were busy because of Putin’s illegal inauguration and peaceful opposition meetings with white ribbons. Guy with AK was not interesting for them.

  2. Yes he is a normal looking fellow…it is still scary however, that the people/police are so trusting. The weapon should be at least in some sort of restraint. Russia is a very free country – the opposite to what many believe; and the people, generally mind their own business…almost to a fault. I hope that they never get the sickness and the crazy mass murderers which the west has!!

  3. If he wanted to get a more realistic response maybe he should have kept the hoard of journalists away from him. Thats a give away, right there.

    • What he’s trying to show is that a white ribbon that’s the sign of peaceful government opposition will get you arrested in Moscow right away while what looks like a fully automatic weapon doesn’t raise a doubt.

      • That should mean that the opposition has less than a thousand active members, because thats how many people were arrested.

      • What hes actually trying to do is this,
        If he was tackled and marched off to jail it would be police brutality because it was only a replica.
        If he was ignored it was because all the police are looking for political opponents of Putin.

        This is purely a political stunt, nothing else.

    • True with several cameras following you around it becomes clear that it is a publicity stunt and not a danger and if you did walk around really looking suspicious that would attract the kind of attention that make people call the authorities.

    • it is a deactivated ak47… you cannot see its a toy even if you handle it , .. its made from same parts as the real gun.. you can buy these from the russian gun producers.. its like a prop weapon or drill weapon.. even somebody who knows this gun cannot tell till they look in down the barrel and see there is a plug..

  5. I have never known why people are opposed to gun carrying. In California recently they passed a law were you cant open unloaded carry. Yea whats a guy gonna do with a unloaded firearm? Hit you with it? If more people carried guns everyone would be nicer to each other.

    • Mare, maybe it’s you who is actually a bit mental? Gun sales and homicide statistics in the U.S. reveal an interesting trend. When gun sales surge in the Unites States, homicide rates DECLINE. Seems some of the scumbags who would actually do you harm, unlike law abiding citizens, loose there nerve to victimize other people when the risk they’ll get shot goes up. Latest example from FBI statistics, 2009, after Obama was elected. Those who value the 2nd amendment feared Democrats restricting gun rights and began stocking guns and ammunition while still available. Yet violent crime noticeably decreased during the same time period, despite the nation going further into recession (more financial incentive to commit crime). This is after the rate holding steady for several years. Furthermore people who “go mental” having easy access to guns is not an issue. If you push my buttons to the point i go mental and want to violently murder you, it’s not going to matter if i have access to a gun. What matters is if i have access to YOU at thatr point. If i do your DEAD. Any blunt instrument or pointy thing will do the job quite nicely at that point. Remember, i’ve gone mental, i’ve been pushed to far, i’m filled with rage and want to KILL KILL KILL. It’s actually you that very much needs to own a gun at that point, for your own safety.

  6. I’m glad you guys posted this. But you should post pictures of riot police attacking innocent people in the streets of Moscow since May 6th. This man did this to show how ridiculous it is that police are arresting people on the streets without reason. Moscow is occupied at the moment, hundreds are out in the streets protesting, hundreds are being arrested.

    Reply
    • Yes. Hundreds of people arrested at a protest of some thirty thousand people (max.), (in a city of over 12 million people). Such an overwhelming majority. Moscow is totally occupied by the masses. Lol.

  7. Since 9may is a celebration of victory day in russia, I would think many assumed he was part of parade or it was a decoration. Still tho, some officer should ahve questioned him.

  8. If it had been an M16, he would have been stopped. Fact is, most Russians see somebody carrying an AK47, they just assume he’s police or military, no big deal.

    The reason it would be a problem in the USA, is because even our military doesn’t normally walk around with their guns displayed.

    Sorry “(r)evolutionist”, even the “gun crazy” USA has gun laws, generally speaking, you can’t walk around openly with displayed rifles like this. So chances are, he would have been arrested.

    Too bad though eh? An armed society is a polite society.

    • Depends one where you live in the United States. Laws on open carry or transporting firearms vary greatly from state to state. So “generally speaking” doesn’t tell the whole story.

  9. Where I live in Colorado people occasionally walk around with exposed firearms. I don’t pay much attention to them either. I won’t get excited about it unless the weapons get pointed at someone.

    • Exactly. People have been too conditioned to fear people with guns. I am not afraid of any sane person who has a firearm unless it is aimed in my direction. Most legal gun owners are very cautious with their weapons and understand the responsibility that comes along with them. I am more afraid to live in a place where only the government has weapons than somewhere with open or concealed carry. Frankly, seeing this person freely walking about with a Kalashnikov gives me a new respect for the people of Russia. I only wish people were so open minded in big American cities.

        • How do you know the thousands of people around you everyday aren’t sane? Yet you don’t excessively worry about them running you down with their car in anger, or stabbing you in the break room with a fork now do you? But discover someone is carrying or transporting a gun and OMFG!!!!! lol

        • In the old West you carried a gun to defend yourself from many dangers as well as to put supper on the table. If you even reached for your gun in an offensive manner, that would be probable cause for others to reach for theirs in a defensive manner !…..thus, natural selection took place.
          Do you take all guns,knives,cars,pencils,etc., or just the ones from the mentally ill ?

  10. wonder if i could go shopping in my local walmart this way? i think people assumed he was some sort of ‘official’ he does not look crazy. often if you act like you belong, you can go and do many things not available otherwise.

  11. I experienced quiet diffrent situation. I was carring a box that toy-gun in it. many people stopped me and look the box and said “I’m so scared!”. It’s strange.

  12. No one seems to notice that he’s wearing a heavy winter coat while everyone else is dressed lightly. He’s probably using that coat to hide it and only takes out AK for few brief seconds to make a picture.

    Reply
  13. It only takes a brief look to tell that this “gun” is a toy, mix of AK74 and AKM. No wonder noone cared.

    Reply
    • ?? you can buy just this exsact ak47 in gun shots all over russia for about 400 bucks… look just like this same setup but with a 10 shot mag.. its not a toy, with a normal basic ak parts and a metal lath you can convert this back to the original gun it once was, converting deactivate guns in russia is common.. the baikal “airmak” convert to .22 is very popular..

  14. if is a joke or no the police must be control everything, remember the Theater, Veronezh, Grozny, Domedovo and Beslan attacks…is not a joke the security in Moscow is worse…i think the police only control FEMA….

    • The militsiya (now politsiya) cant do shyte. Counter-terrorism is the responsibility of the FSB and to a lesser extent MVD.

  15. nobody cares who gets shot in the USA. Nobody cares what your ex-slave class gets up to. you guys think it is normal to wind up sleeping in a tent with no access to even the most basic dental healthcare. America is built on lies, distilled by Hollywood and then beamed out of screens across the globe.

  16. I would bet that the policeman whom is standing in front of him had already accessed the situation and was there to avert any alarm. Any law enforcement officer who has watched videos of American cops acting like idiots under these same circumstances may have learned from the example………it pays to act human towards other humans ??????
