A Door, A Gun and a Store For Rent

I never saw the gun until I stepped back, unique among Blissville's grafitti.

The AK-47 was developed in 1947 by Mikhail Kalishnikov, in Russia. It's 60 years old but remains the world's most popular assault weapon because, I am told, it's easy to use and never malfunctions.

Two crossed AK-47s lie in the center of Mozambique's flag. Other AK-47s have found their way into the coat of arms of Zimbabwe, East Timor, the flag of Hezbollah, and the logo of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps.

But how did this one find its way into sleepy Blissville?
