Default M22

Does anyone know if there is any kind of weapon designated as an M22? On the day of the sandy hook shooting I heard a reporter say that the shooter had a M22. For some reason I just forgot about it but my wandering mind just kinda revisited that for some reason. I don't know of anything with the designation "M22".

Reporters never have a clue about firearms. For that matter they don't seemed to know anything about news reporting. He may have been talking about the Marlin .22 rimfire that was used to kill his mother. It was reported that he shot his mother 5 times in the face while she was sleeping.

Well I guess now I know of something with a M22 designation. Thanks for the info. I don't know if that's what the reporter was talking about or not. I just caught a piece of what he said.

I thought they said he shot his mom with the 9mm pistol?

"M22" has a more sinister sound than "Marlin .22 Long Rifle, small varmint rifle" or "22 caliber handgun"

The early reports claimed he killed his mother with an AR-15. Later reports say a Marlin .22 rimfire which was not locked up. We do not know what he used in the school shootings? We do not know if he was on drugs or was there others involved?

The most interesting fact is the report will not be released for 90 days. Obama will release his AWB bill in 30 days. Obama does not want facts to interfer with gun control.

Yeah they are exploiting this as much as they can.

So when do we actually get to see a report from the people that were actually on scene to investigate the shooting, i.e., federal or state police?

I'd like to get a dose of truth...not likely to give any more clarity as to why it happened, but it may certainly dispel much of what the media chose to spread...

If someone was shot twice with a .22, SOMEWHERE there is a reporter that would decide that must be a .44.
