    They'd both probably still be alive, and not killed each other over something as dumb as road rage.

    "Keith Byrne was trying to do the right thing. After the Marine Corps veteran accidentally cut off another car, he was ready to apologize at the next light.

    Before he could, a passenger got out of the cut-off car and shot him square in the chest.

    The mortally wounded Byrne, 41, was also prepared to fight back. With his own gun, he fired two shots at 22-year-old Andre Sinclair, and Sinclair died of his injuries at the hospital two days later. Byrne died on scene."

    He wanted to apologize for cutting off another driver. It turned into a deadly shootout.

    They did not "kill each other over road rage".

    The guy that was cut off killed the Marine over road rage. The Marine killed the other guy for shooting him.

    The US is full of stupid people and we hear about them every day.

    Glad the Marine shot that dipshit. Too bad the Marine died as well.

    Or they could have died years ago due to the lack of being adequately able to defend themselves from a different attacker.

    Your Straw Man works both ways.

    It's not meant to be super serious... but more a parody of the hundreds of post made by the resident gun nutter 2aguy who takes every crime and tries to twist it into a way to support gun ownership.

    You just said exactly what I said. The underlying cause was road rage.

    Wow now trying to apologize is a death sentence in some parts of America.

    Another reason why I stopped going to Florida several years ago.
