MOSCOW (AP) -- Mikhail Kalashnikov, the designer of the AK-47 assault rifle, reportedly wrote a regretful letter several months before his death asking the head of the Russian Orthodox Church if he was to blame for the deaths of those killed by the guns.
To "tell both sides," the article reports not only the letter, which is fact, but also random speculation that a priest helped him write the letter.
How about it, gun fanciers? Who is behind this insidious line of questioning?

Mikhail Kalashnikov has died. While Eugene Stoner made millions off the design of the M16, Kalashnikov died almost penniless. He hated what his gun was used for, he designed it for the defense of the Mother Land, not for terrorists or thugs.
Rest in piece.
Mikhail Kalashnikov, the Soviet inventor and namesake of the world's most popular gun, the AK-47, died Monday. He was 94.
Born into a peasant family in Siberia, Kalashnikov was at one point a railroad clerk and aspired to design farm equipment.
But his name will forever be linked with a tool of death and destruction, the "Avtomat Kalashnikov."
