Responsible Gun Ownership #6: Road Rage + Fire Arms

From Addicting Info:

Two men in the small town of Ionia, Michigan, identified as James Pullam, 43, and Robert Taylor, 56 on the town’s police department’s Facebook page, are now dead as a result of out of control road rage mixed with guns. Apparently, the two men got out of their vehicles and began to argue just before 7 PM Wednesday evening. Eventually, they both took out their guns. The rest, as they say, is history, and both men were pronounced dead at Sparrow Ionia Hospital on Thursday.

Witnesses at the scene are mortified. They report hearing seven or eight gunshots. Here is what one witness, Allen Daggett, had to say:
I think it’s crazy that a small town has to have two people die,. I feel sorry for the people that died. I feel sorry for the families and everyone’s [who is] acquainted with them.
Daggett reached the scene around the time just before first responders showed up. He also told 24 Hour News 8 that a local person tried to help before officials arrived. Perhaps the most shameful part of all is that the good Samaritan had to kick the men’s guns out of the way to be able to perform CPR.
