kolla kolla kollayo

This street vendor is in Korea, so she obviously doesn't think that authorities will threaten to use deadly force against her even though she is carrying objects which may look like assault rifles. (About guns in Korea, I'm reminded of the two bank tellers many many years ago who didn't think that this bank robber would use his gun against them, and started throwing stuff at the robber, who couldn't but flee this sudden use of undeadly force.)

This is a middle-aged woman selling toy guns at an intersection in Gangneung, Gangwon-do (from Yonhap via Media Daum). The article tells that vendors of all kinds of merchandise approaching drivers in this way has greatly increased.
