My son has an airsoft gun. They are kind of fun to shoot for about 10 minutes or so, then it gets boring.

A device designed for one purpose, to kill people efficiently, is considered a toy.

.22



Invented during the civil war to kill people. You could kill just about anything with a .22 and some aim.

A compound bow would be more effective at killing to be completely honest.


VERY few people have the ability to kill people with a .22 round. It's a varmit/target round.
About as harmless as a bullet can get.
But you are trollin and I <3 you so we will stop here ;)

You are the one trying to argue a 22 doesn't kill people when that was exactly what it was designed to do as a historical fact.

No sir I did not.

Okay I'm one of the biggest gun lovers here... but...

Stop arguing semantics about the .22 being anything but a lethal weapon. I say that while admitting that lots of things could be considered just as deadly.

It is as lethal as any firearm of any caliber. This is especially so when it falls into the hands of someone who isn't proficient with firearm training or safety, or someone with a warped view of the world and life itself.

The whole crux of the gun control argument needs to focus on the people that wield them and not so much as the firearms themselves. But lets don't disregard common sense to justify a confirmation bias.

To the OP. Cool gun! Congrats!

I say that with the hope that you, too, are a responsible gun owner and that you'll treat your new toy with the responsibility required.

That Gun is not designed to kill people. Most rifles are not designed to kill people. That's like saying a steak knife is designed to kill people.

The OPs .22 Cal weapon does not have power or velocity. It does not have long range accuracy. It's the smallest and cheapest widely accepted bullet. It would take multiple bullets, maybe an entire clip in an unarmored target to kill someone with that weapon. It's a toy. My dad taught me to shoot a .22cal when I was 7. It's a training gun for kids. Or a cheap toy for adults.

TLDR If you picked the OPs gun on Call of Duty you wouldn't kill anyone. Not even the dogs.

Oh that guy.


poo yeah I could likely kill someone with a .22.
But that's not why someone would buy one IMO.
