So he bought the gun online from Romania, had it shipped to his local gun store, picked it up legally after being put through a background check.

“To legally purchase a weapon online, the buyer must have it shipped to a licensed gun dealer who records the firearm’s make, mark and serial number before performing a background check. If the person passes, they can have the gun. This allows law enforcement to identify the original buyer of a gun if it’s used in a crime or is stolen”

So it was a WASR-10? The most popular AK in the US currently.

Where were his underwear made? That seems like it should be newsworthy as well.

WASR 10 is not an American rifle, and after Clinton, you can't order a "firearm" internationally, you order a parts kit, use a US made reciever, and put it together, although usually an importer does this. Legally speaking, the reciever is the firearm. There are plenty of 100% US AKs on the market these days anyway, C39 anybody?
