"A 15-year-old boy used a World War II-era sniper rifle to fatally shoot a deputy and critically wound another outside his southern Indiana home, authorities said Tuesday.

The teen, Tyler Dumstorf, had shot the deputies Monday evening and was found dead with a self-inflicted gunshot early Tuesday inside the home about 13 miles outside Louisville, Ky., authorities said.

Prosecutor Keith Henderson said the boy's father bought the M1 Garand some time ago and that he and his son shot it during target practice. The gun is a showpiece, and possessing one is not illegal, the prosecutor said."

I read the rest of the article. I would not call it a negative article. It even says that the weapon is not the problem, just the boy.
Sounds like "the boy" was a spoiled brat that needed an ass whippin real bad.

Was it a 'C' model?

Sniperized garands did exist, IIRC...
