It's NOT the GUNS, it's US!
First, let's take GUNS. GUNS don't kill. SUV's don't kill. Box cutters don't kill. PEOPLE KILL! This story is a perfect example of the kind of story that sparks debate over gun control:

That being said, "TOO BAD!" Any one who CHOOSES a GUN as the way to deal with anger over a TRAFFIC INCIDENT DOESN'T NEED TO BE LOOSE ON THE STREET!
