And that's the point.

The question is not whether the .22 lr is capable, under some circumstances, of instantly killing with one shot. It is.

The question is not whether people shot with a .22 lr have eventually died. They have.

The question is what handgun cartridges are, overall and under the widest range of circumstances, most likely to reliably and quickly stop an assailant. The .22 lr isn't in contention.
