I watched this video over the weekend. YouTube - Red Neck BMW Road Rage I am not your stereotypical gun owner. I currently drive a miata, sometimes with the topdown, and sometimes people will bubblegum with me for it similar to what they did to this guy. I use to have a really fast MR2 Turbo, and people would want to road rage with me because they could tell I liked my car and wasn't one of them country boys in the big truck or v8 muscle car etc. so Ive experienced road ragers on the same caliber as the one in the above video, and once thought I was in a situation where I needed a firearm and was at the mercy of the road-raging lunatic (who came up to my window with his fist pulled back like he was about to punch me in my face, since I responded to him raging at my car) I currently have a pro-choice bumper sticker, I have a need to voice my support for womens reproductive rights and I realize this carrys a risk that people will want to yell at me and flip me off because they do not think women have a right over their own body, but as a timid 25 year old man, I am a little fearful that someday, anyday, I could run into a road-rager that wants to take it to the next level, like the guys in this video. I generally do ignore them or tell them if they have a problem with me, my car, or whatever my bumper says, we can get the police involved to settle the matter, and that usually shuts them up, but what about those situations where there isn't a police officer, and your safety is in the hands of the road-rager who is angry with you? Unfortunately, my parents are liberals and do not want me carrying a firearm in my car at all, and I can respect my parents anti-gun stance, but I do feel a need to carry some form of protection, because my worst run ins with the public have been while driving, since I don't hang out in dangerous neighborhoods but you can run into virtually anyone on the road, especially since they started issuing drivers licenses to people fresh out of prison in my state. My need to protect myself carried over to my schooling when I chose to pursue an education in Criminal Justice and my dream is to become a probation officer. I always try to do whats right and stay on the correct side of the law now, so I may have a future in criminal justice, but until then, as an ordinary citizen, what means should I take to protect myself like in the situation in the video above?
