Well, while I cannot condone the shooter's actions, and I hope they're caught and dealt with accordingly, EVERYONE that drives must change their habits. This country and the whole world for that matter, has gone back to the days of the wild west. Think about it for a minute. Old ladies being carjacked and being thrown into their trunks as the perp. drives off; shootings everywhere, outside clubs, at gas stations, on the road, you name it. The lesson here, at least for me, is don't tick someone off. People are on short leashes mentally these days. All it takes is for someone to cut someone off, like in this case, to result in death. And if you have a child in your car, that obviously doesn't appear to stop thug punks from shooting at you. This case is but another example of why I'll never (and haven't for more than 10 years) get in my car without my magnum. I've a license to carry same and wouldn't hesitate to use it if my life were in danger. I'm not advocating violence, but these criminals must be dealt with accordingly. God bless America!
