Addressing the current gun debate in America, NRA president David Keene recalled an unlikely voice of support for the Second Amendment: the father of the modern assault rifle, Mikhail Kalashnikov, designer of the iconic AK-47.

“My dream is a country like the United States, governed by men and women not afraid of an armed populace,” Kalashnikov is reported to have said.

The full interview with Keene will be broadcast exclusively on The Daily Caller Monday, Feb. 4.
