Admittedly, I did miss that part. Which of these details provides an argument in favor of less controls on gun ownership?

Road-rage shooting leaves woman dead - Houston Chronicle
My dad was very nearly beaned to death with a tire iron once. Lucky for him a cop (with a gun) showed up at just the right moment.

Tire irons don't kill people. People kill people.

is not a valid argument for letting everyone have RPGs and plastic explosives if they want, and is also not a valid argument for letting everyone have assault rifles if they want. Assault rifles should be in the category of RPGs and plastic explosives.

If the victim had armed herself before this happened, she might have been able to act in her own defense.

Bingo.......

Evidently the OP has a reading problem as all 3 cars were stopped and evidently close to home. The shooter got out, and walked home to get his rifle.......

If the other people left and or were armed it might have turned out different.

But I got stuck on I-90 once in stopped traffic and people were fist fighting over 6 inches of space.

I was armed in Mass and so chose to sit on the guard rail and just watched. That went on for hours. Foolish *******s will fight for 6 inches of road.

Topic is a murder using a gun, not your interpretation of murder without guns.

You don't know that...I drive to work every day. The stuff I see people in cars do to each other while driving their cars is scarier and just as deadly as any gun.

Baseball bats kill people too.
