    I understand why they wouldn't want to sell weapons to countries like Turkey and Saudi Arabia, but Israel and "any African country," is just ridiculous IMO. This will most likely be good for US arms manufacturers like Colt, S&W, Bushmaster, etc... The Russian government is probably licking its' chops too.

    Weird reasoning on their part.

    If they were really concerned about not wanting their guns to be used to kill any more people, then they'd close their doors stop making them entirely. "HK Tractors" has a good ring to it.

    Making good people helpless won't make bad people harmless.

    H&K firearms have not killed anyone. The person pulling the trigger did. Not H&K's fault, not the gun's fault.

    H&K sucks anyway.

    Just picked up this HK today:

    If it says Tactical you can shoot burgers off a flies nose at 478 meters. I know I read the web.

    but you cannot compress me.

    The most precious thing a man can give to another is time,
    as of it, we have so little.
