    Sawed-off .22 rifle? I have NEVER heard of that used in a 'rampage.'

    A .22lr rifle was also used during the holocaust museum shooting a few years ago which resulted in a guard being killed.

    Also used at a school in Arkansas where the shooter had an accomplice pull the fire alarm to get his classmates to exit the building while he took shots at them. Also was a famous favorite for mob hitmen for up close work. A .22 can be very deadly and should be treated like the deadly weapon that it is.

    The shooting spree at the Edmond , OK post office gave new meaning to the term "going postal"; 14 people were killed. The shooter was a member of the OK Air National Guard. He shot in pistol competition. i believe he used .45 pistols to kill all those folks. Contrary to this article, the guy who ran that post office was an idiot who picked on the guy.
