The good news is they both died.

Self correcting problem.....





You don't get out at a stop light and approach a vehicle to apologize.
No matter what you think. Your escalating the situation.
That's what I meant by this is a great example of how not to handle this. I also am extremely doubtful of this story. You don't if you have common sense try to get out of your car and approach another. I have many times done something in traffic that caused a close call and was my fault. If I could see the other driver I would hold up a hand and mouth sorry. Also the way he managed to get his gun out and shoot the guy who shot him makes me wonder. Was he really getting out to say how sorry he was, or did he get out with a gun in his hand already. Sad part is both had permits so you know how this will feed the antis now.

Who was raging? Or maybe i'm dense? Guy cut a person off. Person cut-off is angry and honks. Person who did the cutting off wants to apologize. Person who honked sees the man coming to apologize as aggression and believes they are protecting them selves and shoots. Who's raging? I see an apologetic action. And a fear response?

Glad the second article came up here. Again it shows why it's so damn hard to read anything in the "news" any more and be able to believe anything you read.
I’m with you, it’s difficult because there’s unfactual facts that somehow are news...

Medic! Already addresses this... :D

Fake news. :cool:

Read the article again. It says Sinclair got out of his vehicle and shot Byrne (the Marine).

AND how is it good news that Byrne died? Really? REALLY???

It says he got out to apologize but that he was shot in his truck?

So did he get out? Or did the 2nd guy just run up and shoot him?

Either way it sounds like the 2nd guy was a little too trigger happy.
Maybe he thought he was defending his baby and GF?

Either way stupid shouldn’t be around firearms

Gosh, what tragic turn of events. I also agree with @AMT. Byrne was obviously not at fault here and his death is tragic. The other man seemed to be the instigator and his death was warranted based on how that second article frames it. Still, who knows what actually went down.

Just a reminder that cooler heads always prevail. As my old mentor told me: “The first one to yell, loses.” Lived by it for a while and hasn’t steered me wrong.
