Too coincidental and too many gun-grabber themes.

Doesn’t sound right —— something missing here

There’s not enough information here to determine whether this is a ‘road rage’ incident.

Exactly. Perhaps the man who returned fire was well within his rights to do so to protect himself. He likely saved other’s lives, while losing his own.

How do they know both were "enraged?" I would postulate that the first driver probably was, and the second was terrified and defending his life.

All we know is the guy being tailgated pulled off the the road and the guy behind stopped also. Maybe something happened before the tailgating. Maybe not.

I remember once I accidentally cut a guy off and he followed me for 20 minutes until I pulled into a police station.

Anyway, it’s obvious the guy in front would not have been “enraged”. More likely scared. If “enraged” he would not have disengaged. The tailgater then fired and the first guy returned fire.

Gotta wonder if these two knew each other. Isn’t this a rural area?

re: “Too coincidental and too many gun-grabber themes.”

I agree. This story fulfills the “crazy gun nuts” template too well. As someone else mentioned, there is no evidence as to what caused the incident. One witness says one of the drivers was following the other too closely, but we don’t know why.

But, that doesn’t matter when your the media and you have your propaganda to get out.

Other side of the state. Ionia is working class and small town.

Yep, just like all of those identical DREAMer stories we had coming out several months ago. The names and the cities were different, but each one featured a gifted high school student who was an illegal alien brought here by his or her parents. These brilliant students just wanted a chance to succeed in higher education without being stymied by our evil immigration system.

Wow, someone is obsessed with race. Who cares? They were idiots -- no ethnicity has a monopoly on idiots.

There are too many questions here. One car had passengers, but other people “found” the bodies and performed CPR. The passengers should have provided some context but none in noted. No mention of drugs, alcohol or previous driving record.

Twice a day I drive 18 miles of moderately dangerous two lane road. About once every month somebody cruises along on my bumper at 55 mph. Sometimes their headlights disappear and that’s close. I put on my turn signal and pull off the road and let them pass. Then, I pull out again and continue at 55. These people may be aggressive drivers or simply unaware. In either case, I never get upset. Getting upset means you’ll do something stupid.

What's the "market for violence?" You can buy violence?

Nothing like a couple of hot-headed morons to make the world safer for gun owners. And both of these losers were old enough to know better. Too old to be Darwin Award winners, because they’ve probably already bred copies of themselves.

Ionia is about 160 Miles west of Detroit. 30 Miles East of Grand Rapids.

It is or atleast was the fastest Growing town in Michigan.
(Due to the State having something like 7 Prisons in the vicinity)

Ethnicity is this area is mostly White folk.

My first thought was Just a couple of Correction Officers off Duty ruffling their feathers. However, I do not know any of the details other that what has been reported and posted in comment sections of the local papers.

It’s pretty rural. Closest cities of any notable size are Lansing and Grand Rapids and they’re not exactly next door. There’s definitely more to this story than is being reported (or shared with LEO).
