Typical New York Times.

Agenda, agenda, agenda.

Guns don't kill (or assault) people, people do.  That guy might be the best firefighter in the state, but he certainly has anger issues that need addressing.  Guess they will be, now.

Did it matter that the guy had a CCW?  No.  He broke the law.  He is being punished for breaking the law.  Whether he had a permit or not is irrelevant.  He didn't mention the other 239,999 law abiding citizens of North Carolina who are carrying concealed and don't have road rage issues.
Wouldn't it be a better forum if before we posted, we each took a moment to recite a few lines from St Francis...

... grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned...

Just a thought...

I"d like to see the stats on how many road rage incidents happen with non-ccw people with guns..

From a friend: Benjamin Franklin once said that beer is proof that God loves us.
I'm of the opinion that Redheads are proof that, contrary to popular belief, Satan also loves us.

My question is, why didn't the other guy with a family make sure he could respond to the threat effectively?  What would he have been able to do had the shooter been firing at his wife or son instead of him other than be a human shield?  Give me 2 hours and I can be in possession of a firearm with no background check and no questions asked from a person that I am quite certain cannot lawfully own firearms.  It isn't that I know who to go to, it is just that I know what part of town to go to.  I can lawfully own firearms, but if I can do it, a criminal can too.

Frankly, this is a pointless article meant to vilify guns and we lawful gun owners that own and carry them.  I agree, typical New York Times.

this article obviously doesnt show the opposing statistics (or any statistics really)...
also- I know it probably wouldnt have changed the story if he didn't have it,  but how the hell could that bordeaux dude still have his permit?!?!

Definitely a slanted article.  How many road rage assaults per year?  How many are fatalities?  How many with a coffee cup?  If you inserted the phrase coffee cup in place of gun how many papers will that sell?

I googled road rage and coffee cup.  Lots of articles there.

In my opinion the new York times is worse than a bad pimple you can't reach.
