I have several .22lf. Not much more than a pellet gun. I even keep one on the porch in the summer just to shoot squrriels in the garden. To think that there are human beings in other countries that are being controlled this much that a. 22lr justifies the ruling class taking as much as 16 years of your life is sickening.
If my son were the fascist bastard "human being" using such overblown rhetoric to describe a friggin' .22, he'd never set foot in my house again.
