Another tale of unhinged Floridians mowing down innocent people in the streets because they took umbrage at a traffic dispute, right? Maybe not.
A convicted road rage murderer was killed Wednesday after getting into an altercation with a driver in a separate traffic incident, Florida officials said.Gary Lynn Durham, 40, who served 11 years behind bars for killing a man in a 2001 road rage dispute, got into the confrontation with motorist Robert Padgett, 42, at about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday in Plant City, Florida, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said.
“They were going back and forth in a road rage incident, and the shooter reportedly had tried to avoid and evade him, and at some point, the deceased guy ended up getting in front of him and stopping in the middle of the roadway and getting out and came back and confronted him,” Larry McKinnon, a spokesman for the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, told NBC News. Padgett then fired at least one round from his semi-automatic handgun. He then administered CPR on Durham while waiting for deputies to arrive, officials said. Durham later died.
Note to Chryl Anderson, Florida Chapter Leader at Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America: It would be a good idea to pause before posting an article that will backfire later on. It kinda makes you look dumber than usual. Basically you stated the Moms Demand Action support convicted murderers….wait, you are not doing that for real, right?
