Turning Ploughshares into Swords: Man Builds AK-47 from Shovel

There’s an old saying about turning swords into ploughshares. It’s from the book of Isaiah in the bible actually, talking about a time when weapons will no longer be needed and the tools of war will be turned into tools of peace. It’s a very hopeful outlook on the future, one that pacifists tend to take to heart. Apparently one man on the Northeast Shooters’ forum didn’t get the message, though, and did the reverse, turning a shovel into a functioning AK-47. And he’s posted pictures of the process. It’s simultaneously the most horrendously awful troll of a weapon and the most beautiful thing I’ve seen all month. Check out all his pictures over at the forum thread.
