EVERY story like this is an un-opposable argument for stricter gun control.
There is no way this man should EVER have been able to buy an AK-47.
But then, he also shouldn't have been able to make an explosive device either.
Heck, someone like this probably shouldn't own a dog or chickens either...
I don't care however if he has the pot -- the one thing so far, for which he has been arrested.

I-79 BACK OPEN: Chickens and ammo to blame for shutdown
Just before 4 a.m., Seth Grim was driving a 1998 Ford Explorer with Pennsylvania plates and rolled it over on Interstate 79 near Amma, West Virginia. A dog tried to jump out of the window, which might have helped cause the wreck. Unfortunately, the dog later died and Grim was taken to the hospital with minor injuries to his upper torso.
Here's where the story gets wacky. In the back of his explorer were 35 to 40 chickens along with an AK-47 and a large amount of ammunition. Also in the back of his vehicle was a device that police were extremely concerned about. The "improvised explosives" prompted a higher level of response.
The West Virginia State Police Bomb Squad out of Williamson was sent to the scene and removed the device.
Initially, all of the chickens were reported to have made it out alive. Our reporter, who was on site during the shutdown of the interstate, tells us that some of the chickens died.
I-79 is now back open.
Seth Grim is being charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. Officers saw a quart jar of what they believed to be marijuana in the front seat. He's being held in the South Central Regional Jail on a $25,000 bond.
