Gun Nut America. The days of the Wild West are back. That should make the Nationalist Rifle Association very happy.

What is the point of having guns then - This is too reasonable for some. I am sure some will be thinking damn if that lady just had a weapon on her none of this would have happened

Well the LAST THING you do is head towards your home when you have an altercation with another driver and they follow you. You head to a police station or if you can't find one an area where there are people.

But you don't let someone follow you home.

Again, if there seemed to be more beneath the surface, I think the cops would see it too, since they don't I don't get why others here still insist there's more to the story.
None of us know what the cops are looking into. You only know what they release to the press. Maybe it is just a road rage incident, maybe there is more to it.

Don't be so nave, there are several stories that come out and later on they're not what they originally seemed. The police keep some things quiet for awhile.

Good question. Since she chose to drive home, you would get out of the car the minute you put in park and ran inside. The car also stayed outside long enough for the son to come out shooting.

Agree, the son could have shot a neighbor walking their dog.

Alright, you win. This would never, ever in a million kajillion years EVER happen to you, because you would NEVER do this or that that she did, YOU would have a calm head and make all the right decisions. YOU will never be touched by random violence because YOU'RE not stupid like this lady was. Lucky you!

Yep. The story is evolving.

So many plausible possibilities, and basically none of them are anything like the story her children are peddling.

Before I dumped our apartment buildings, I used to have White Trash try to con me into renting to them. They had these things they'd say, trying to push the right buttons: "Is it alright if I plant flowers?" or "I'm a wonderful person!" (meaning, "I'm in a Twelve-Step program, and am currently seeing a court-ordered psychiatrist, who has me on serious meds").

All kindsa trash lives in those nice new homes around Vegas. Judging from the way those people were dressed, their names, etc., I'm thinkin' that here in Oregon, they'd be in a used doublewide out in the sticks, somewhere.

I'm wondering if maybe they didn't know the spiky-haired shooter, already. Or maybe they knew, somehow, the usual 'loop' that people make, around town. Like maybe they're a part of the same 'culture'.

Sounds like Mom went out looking for trouble and trouble found her instead. Losing my sympathy here since she basically escalated the situation ten-fold by getting her armed son involved. How did they think this was going to go down when Sonny Boy has a loaded gun and likely as enraged as she was?

Of course, murder is murder but not all murder victims are as deserving of sympathy...
