THE IMAGE ABOVE IS A PAID ADVERTISEMENT
With all this talk on the news about the student having a .22 caliber assault rifle I just must ask.

What country uses a .22 long rifle assault rifle.

Personally I can' think of any.

Some college student offed himself and they claim he was planning a massacre. He shot himself with a .45 and he owned a .22 'assault' rifle.

I believe it was a GSG-5.

Just looking at it the wrong way could cause some people to lose control of their bladders.

Dude committed suicide.

Yes, perfectly logical.

I think he was planning on killing every student on campus. Then he logged into arfcom and discovered that .22s can't kill shit. So he killed himself out of embarrassment.

One was a High Point 45-caliber semi-automatic pistol and the other an American Tech 22-magnum tactical rifle.


Went out in style.

An AR15 is .22 caliber as much as a 10-22 is.

AT is the importer.

It's also not a .22mag, just a .22LR

I owned this dangerous .22 assault rifle when I lived in the Peoples Republic of New Jerseystan (And yes the Marlin Model 60 IS an assault rifle in that state. >15 rds in the tube)

Amazing how the lamestream media mostly ignored this story once they learned that a 'mass shooting' had been thwarted.
