    Arrest Made in Seattle Road Rage Shooting.

    http://www.kirotv.com/news/news/seat...age-sho/nSHWP/

    In an accompanying interview the Police found a "Gun Vault" in the house and "Bullet Making Equipment" along with a bunch of rifles.

    In the interview it was implied that the suspect was a bit of a "gun nut".

    Wonder if he ever participated in this forum?

    Anyone missing since Friday morning?

    I doubt this is just a "Road Rage" there is something more to this story.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    I agree, that is about a vague of a story as I have read.

    So now his name is out there (Dinh Bowen) and it has been revealed that he was an active IDPA shooter. Be interesting to know what forums he visited. I'd find it hard to believe he didn't visit any of he commonly used NW forums as well as possibly here too.

    His posts might make for some interesting reading, or not.

    I think he was a USPSA member. Not that it makes much difference.

    It strikes me that entering a shooting competition that requires you to double-tap every target with a gun the contains an odd number of bullets is probably a bad idea.

    Many things could be said about competition. Good and bad. The video shows he knew how to handle a firearm at the action bay. Outside of the action bay well...he has shown he couldn't handle it.

    I don't know if he was a member or not but I swear I've seen that video before. I'm 99% sure that it was in the specialized shooting forum on SGN.

    Unless the competition is designed to show your proficiency in reloading as well. Lots of competitions limit the number of rounds you can load in your firearm, regardless of capacity, just to force you to reload in order to complete. Likewise in various Law Enforcement qualification tests.

    May never know what happened for sure ... I don't shoot people on the road, that's not good driving. They should immediately take away his license. "road rage" vid, pretty tame but nicely produced http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cv5DfZwCOMg

    How would taking away his license help?

    Factually untrue.

    Should firearms or firearm owners be subject to testing to receive a license to carry a firearm?
    The Argument Against
    Author Nick Smith


    No, no, no... it says "....shall not be infringed." no training, no class, no license, nada...the government is to be absent from a citizens right to 'keep' (own) and 'bear' (carry, open or concealed).

    Now for one minute let's tear apart this stupid licensing idea.

    You take ONE test to drive a car when you are 16 and then NEVER have to prove competency again. The test is simple, multiple choice and teaches you nothing that you can't read on your own. You take ONE driving test and then NEVER have to prove your ability ever again, EVER. Your driverís license is recognized in any of the 50 states. Therefore, you can have learned to drive in Alaska with very little traffic, yet your license is good in New York, New York or Los Angeles, CA.

    You can therefore be 66 years old and have not taken a test, written or physical in 50 YEARS. Do you think cars have changed in the last 50 years? The 'you have to have a license to drive' argument doesn't hold water, it is a joke. How many times driving have you said to yourself; 'that old man shouldn't be driving', 'that woman shouldn't be driving', 'that immigrant shouldn't be driving', 'that teenager shouldn't be driving?' We have all said this to ourselves. The argument simply is ridiculous and is now null and void.

    And even with licensing, we still have; drunk drivers, negligent drivers, hit and runs, get away (from crime) drivers, stolen cars, speeding in school zones and more.

    YOU SEE THAT LICENSING DRIVERS (AND CARS) DOES NOTHING TO PREVENT CRIME FROM CARS...OR FROM DRIVERS.

    We must all simply accept that we choose to live in a free society. In a free society their are inherit risks and there is evil and there is great joy. Part of living in a free society is that we must accept responsibility for our actions. There are things in a free society that people will always not like and will always be opposed to and never agree upon, we must learn to accept that and yet choose to live together in peace and respect.

    IF this individual is able to post bail, the Judge could force him to surrender his DL and CPL as a condition of release. Lack of DL may not prevent him from driving but if caught while doing so, his butt would be bounced right back into jail.

    On an related issue, if this individual was released on bail is his name added to the NICS Database? What would prevent him from going out and purchasing a firearm in some out of the way shop where they think "Seattle" is spelled with only one "T"? If not reported, he would most likely receive an OK from NICS and if he has a valid DL (for ID) and a CPL, he could walk out the door with a new pistol. I know that the Wa State handgun purchase form has to be sent to the local law enforcement agency but I believe they have more than a few days to review and approve/disapprove the person's possession of the handgun. If disapproved good luck on getting it back methinks.
