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.

media turns it into a mass shooting.

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.

shoots a rat in the school yard with one,,,,,,,,

Just copy/pasting the disinformation from the uneducated article. =]

media hype to push the term "assault rifle" to brain wash the uneducated.

Now that I think about it, that would be pretty sweet if GSG made a magnum one.

This is the reason I own one. It actually gets more "Why do you have THAT?" than my ARs.

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.
