Hooray for grandpa

This statement by Brian Malte is one sided. The situation escalated to violence when the cyclist approached the car and punched the driver. How would the driver know if the cyclist has a weapon. The outcome could have been a dead grandpa .
Laws like Missouri castle doctrine are a basic right to defend ourselves. The law enforcement can not be everywhere.
Quote: But Brian Malte, spokesman for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, said the presence of a gun escalated the violence.
“This takes what can be an argument and turns it into something that could be deadly,” Malte said. He said laws like Missouri’s castle doctrine “allow people to be the judge, jury and executioner and that’s not the kind of society we think Missourians want to live in or the rest of America wants to live in.”

Big Ol Biker thought he was a big bad 1% biker dude. I bet he watched too many biker movies and shows and then got his bike and leather coat so he could be a wannabe biker. Guess he shouldn't had messed with Grandpa with a gun on his lap, idiotic hoosier!
