High powered .22s redux

Remember the WaPo story last week that claimed .22LR was a “high powered” rifle. I figured at the time the reporter inadvertently pulled it from his stylebook, not realizing the .22 round is a small step above a high powered air rifle.

Well, apparently the author is doubling down by pointing out the round is used by the Israeli military.

…rather than admit error and issue a correction, Mike Rosenwald doubled down. And he doubled down in the most absurd way possible: by mocking anyone who corrected him, and then by refusing to provide any source or data to back up his absurd claim… Had Rosenwald followed his own advice to use Google to verify simple facts, he would’ve learned that IDF sometimes issues .22 LR rifles in extremely limited circumstances not for combat purposes, but to kill small animals and injure violent protesters.
