Digby: Road rage for dummies

Every once in a while OTL,S! yoinks a complete post from somebody who can actually write, and hopes they take it as a compliment rather than a complete copyright violation. So far, we’re batting 1.000:

Road rage for dummies

by digby
This is exactly the kind of thing we can expect to see more of when the whole country is armed to the teeth.

“Police said two men died Wednesday after a shootout allegedly motivated by road rage, the Grand Rapids Press reported.
The initial police investigation showed Ionia, Mich. residents James Pullum, 43, and Robert Taylor, 56, pulled into a car wash parking lot after a confrontation on the road. They then exited their vehicles, drew handguns and exchanged fire, authorities said.
Police found both men at the scene with gunshot wounds, and the two were pronounced dead at an area hospital soon after, according to the newspaper.

Both men held concealed carry permits, according to police.”

With bullets flying all over the place it’s lucky they only killed each other. Usually we can expect a bunch of innocent bystanders to give their lives in these altercations. Even when trained cops start firing, it often ends up this way.

But there is a lesson in this for all of us. Behave as though any nut you come across in public is armed and willing to use his gun whenever he’s crossed. Because freedom.
