    So they shot at him, and as they were driving away, he shot them with a rifle from a freeway overpass? :rofl: Good for him, I'm surprised there were no charges filed :o

    amazing. Stopped on the overpass, got out his rifle, and shot up the car down below.

    Texas = :big grin:

    This is why you keep an SKS in your trunk/truck.

    Really? Texas protects those who have to use deadly force in response to their lives being threatened? Now that is bad ass. I knew they adopted castle, but this is a step further. :bowdown:

    That's why I keep an M61 Vulcan in the truck with ~ 50,000 round of ammo.

    You know all that "got the rifle out to take a look at the license plate" deal is bull shit. This guy was obviously an operator. He could tell by the sound of the shots that the 3 were shooting a handgun. Therefore, he pulled away, out of effective pistol range, and also gaining elevation advantage to take these guys out.

    If the same thing happened here in CA, the article would read:

    Road Rage Incident Leaves one teen dead and two wounded
    On the I5 earlier today, a man involved in a road rage altercation fatally shot one teen, and wounded two others. The perpetrator used an assault weapon and fired on the three after driving out about half a mile to the nearest overpass to gain an elevated sniping position.
    Official police reports have not been released, but witnesses say that the three children were pulled over on the side of the road because their car had broken down. They fired their own hand guns to get the assailant's attention in order to get some help.
    Emmanuel Vargas, the 17 yearold passenger was fatally shot with a well-placed headshot, only capable by military training. The other two, Jose Vasquez and Antonio Delgado were later interviewed by reporters.
    "We just needed some help, and the guy, he shoot at us!" Vasquez stated. He had just recently come to California from Mexico. His injuries included several scrapes and cuts from the broken glass shot out by the armor-piercing bullets the assailant was using. The two surviving victims have no health insurance coverage, and they hope that President Obama's promise of Universal Healthcare would provide for their needs.
    The attacker, John Richardson, a 57 yearold Vietnam War veteran was arrested and charged with 1 count of first degree murder, two counts of attempted murder, three counts of aggravated assault, three counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and seven counts of discharging a firearm in public, for each shot he fired. He was also charged with possession of a loaded firearm, possession of an assault weapon, possession of illegal armor piercing bullets, possession of a concealed handgun, which was in his trunk, out of sight, thus concealed, and also had a misdemeanor charge of possession of a ammuitions cache, which he had two hundred rounds of high-caliber armor piercing .223mm bullets, and 9mm calilber bullets for the handgun. He may also be charged with possession of illegal "cop killer" bullets which police found in a loaded magazine also in the trunk.

    Criminal and civil immunity is codified in law. Even immunity from using force/deadly force against an LEO when otherwise justified.
