Two men died in a shootout after a “road rage” incident last week.
“Initial investigation shows the Ionia men, ages 43 and 56, pulled into the car wash parking lot after a road rage incident. They exited their vehicles and eventually drew handguns and exchanged fire, police said. It wasn’t clear what the two men were arguing about.
Life EMS transported the men to Sparrow Ionia Hospital, where they were pronounced dead.
Police said both men, whose identities have not been released, held permits to carry concealed weapons.” [source]
Why I don’t carry
I support the right to carry a concealed weapon, but this story sums up why I choose not to carry a gun myself. Maybe I am naive, but it seems that a gun would almost always cause more problems than it would solve.
I imagine if just one of these guys would not have been carrying a gun they would both be alive.
