    It is scary. In general terms (not like what happened in that article), when someone drives like a complete AH, cuts you off, etc., you flip them the bird, then they pull out a gun and point it at you, you then pull out your gun and shoot them, then you are the one that is arrested. Because you were the aggressor (by flipping the bird). It is my understanding that under GA law, being the aggressor negates your right to use deadly force in defense of your life. Of course, in our very crooked legal system, if you have enough money for a very good lawyer, you may still walk from that.

    But that is very different from what happened in that article. Following someone to a parking lot after tempers flair on the road is an entirely different matter, and deserves punishment.

    Exactly. It is prudent to avoid confrontation that could potentially go bad real fast.
